By L. I. Malis (auth.), Prof. Franco Pluchino M.D., Prof. Giovanni Broggi M.D. (eds.)

Technological advancements in neurosurgery are disussed. using surgical lasers, ultrasound aspirators, bipolar coagulator and operative microscopes for surgical procedure of deep-seated neoplasms and vascular malformations is mentioned. Intraoperative tracking, chronotherapy, persistent neurostimulation and stereotactic interstitial irradiation are coated and symptoms for interventional neuroradiology are reviewed.

Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing

Fabricated tells the tale of 3D printers, humble production machines which are bursting out of the manufacturing unit and into colleges, kitchens, hospitals, even onto the style catwalk. Fabricated describes our rising global of printable items, the place humans layout and 3D print their very own creations as simply as they edit a web rfile.

Example text

This experience has led to the following conclusions: 1. Holocord widening occurs in 60% of cases, and is diagnostic of a cystic astrocytoma. 2. Despite the absence of a surgical plane of dissection, these neoplasms may be removed from "inside out" until a glia-tumor interface is recognized. 3. Radical tumor excision is compatible with partial or total recovery of neurological function. 4. The success of surgery is directly related to the pre-operative neurological status of the patient. Paralysis or near paralysis was never improved, while mild to moderate pre-operative neurological dysfunction often recovered.

1). History of Photoradiation Therapy The first application of hematoporphyrin derivative (HpD) to the management of brain tumors took place in the 1950's at John Hopkins. At that time, a series of experiments were performed to evaluate HpD fluorescence in the detection of brain tumors at the time of surgery. These experiments demonstrated that detectable levels of HpD would concentrate in brain tumors and that HpD was effectively exluded by an intact blood-brain barrier. The first studies that suggested that photoactivation of HpD might be cytoxic to brain tumors were performed in 1975.
