Surgical practice highly depends on the availability of surgical equipment; this is particularly relevant to low and middle income countries (LMICs), where resources are limited. A key part of the efforts to improve surgical provision globally include providing affordable equipment to LMICs; however, the effectiveness and the impact of these initiatives has not yet been assessed. We aim to evaluate the WFNS neurosurgical equipment program in this context.

Approximately 4.5% of surgical procedures performed at Role 2 (R2) (forward surgical) and Role 3 (R3) (theater) medical treatment facilities can be classified as neurosurgical. These procedures are fo...
Modern neurosurgical practice is impossible without access to various information sources. The use of MRI and MSCT data during surgery is an integral part of the neurosurgeon's daily practice. Devices...
Neurosurgical surgical site infections (SSI) are life-threatening complications, requiring medical treatment and additional surgeries and remain a substantial cause of morbidity. In order to identify ...
WHO surgical safety checklist has been proven to reduce postoperative infections in several studies. The aim of our study was to focus on surgical site infections (SSIs) after neurosurgical operations...
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to estimate the economic consequences of neurosurgical disease in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). METHODS The authors estimated gross domestic produ...
Frailty as an adjunct to preoperative assessment of neurosurgical patients has never been evaluated. This study aims to determine if frailty predicts neurosurgical complications in brain t...
Ultrasonography is a commonly used diagnostic and procedural adjunctive modality in intensive care. Weaning of neurosurgical patients off ventilatory support is a critical procedure, fraug...
The PANDA trial is a multicenter prospective observational study designed to analyze various ICP derived parameters and clinical status in neurosurgical critical patients through a new big...
The goal of this study is to determine whether injecting the antibiotic vancomycin directly into surgical wounds can decrease the rate of infection following implantation of neurosurgical ...
The value of CSF IL-6, IL-8 and Procalcitonin in detecting an early diagnosis of intrathecal infection in neurosurgical patients with an external ventricular drainage is evaluated.
Surgery performed on the nervous system or its parts.
PROCEDURES that use NEUROENDOSCOPES for disease diagnosis and treatment. Neuroendoscopy, generally an integration of the neuroendoscope with a computer-assisted NEURONAVIGATION system, provides guidance in NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES.
Presence of air or gas within the intracranial cavity (e.g., epidural space, subdural space, intracerebral, etc.) which may result from traumatic injuries, fistulous tract formation, erosions of the skull from NEOPLASMS or infection, NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES, and other conditions.
Instruments for the visual examination of interior structures related to NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES. There are two broad categories of neuroendoscopes, the rigid scope and the flexible scope, for various types of procedures.
Discharge of cerebrospinal fluid through the external auditory meatus or through the eustachian tube into the nasopharynx. This is usually associated with CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE involving the TEMPORAL BONE;), NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; or other conditions, but may rarely occur spontaneously.
