As with different surgical concepts and instruments, although, the usage of stereotactic tools calls for exact wisdom and coaching. This ebook contains articles which provide perception into new stereotactic purposes and know-how. for instance, using stereotaxis with no body and the so-called navigator structures in open tumor surgical procedure is handled in papers. The creation and improvement of radiosurgery is heavily associated with the development of stereotactic process. Radiosurgical remedy of tumors and cerebrovascular ailments has been one in every of significant achievements in sleek neurosurgery. This book includes a number of unique reviews illustrating the efficacy of radiosurgery in not easy neurosurgical diseases.

1. Computer drawing of the 108 mono polar electrodes presented in relation to normalized anatomical landmarks. Lateral view: the AC-PC line is divided in 12 parts, the height of the thalamus in 8. The schematic representation of Vim extends from 2/12 to 3/12 on the AC-PC line and from 4/12 to 5/12 on the line corresponding to approx. half the height (dorsoventral) of the thalamus. Frontal view: verticality is represented in 1/8 of the height of the thalamus. Laterality is expressed in mm from the midline Suppression of tremor by Vim stimulation can be easily seen during the stereotactic procedure on a patient under local anaesthesia.
