The minimally invasive alternative approaches to the pterional craniotomy: A systematic review of the literature.

07:00 EST 13th February 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "The minimally invasive alternative approaches to the pterional craniotomy: A systematic review of the literature."

Minimally invasive alternatives to the pterional craniotomy include the minipterional and the supraorbital craniotomy (SOC). The latter is performed via either an eyebrow or an eyelid skin incision. The purpose of this systematic review was to analyze the type and the incidence of approach-related complications of these keyhole craniotomies.

Mini-Pterional Craniotomy for Resection of Parasellar Meningiomas.

Surgical resection of parasellar meningiomas is a challenging operation that has traditionally been performed with a large pterional or orbitozygomatic craniotomy. In this study, we report patient out...

Matched-pair comparisons of minimally invasive esophagectomy versus open esophagectomy for resectable esophageal cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysis protocol.

Open esophagectomy (OE) with radical lymphadenectomy is known as one of the most invasive digestive surgeries with the high rate of complications. Minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) has developed ...

Selection strategy for optimal keyhole approaches for MCA aneurysms: lateral supraorbital versus minipterional craniotomy.

/Objective: The lateral supraorbital (LS) and minipterional (MP) approaches have been reported for treating intracranial aneurysms as alternative to the pterional approach. We present our decision-mak...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.

The use of ultrasound to guide minimally invasive surgical procedures such as needle ASPIRATION BIOPSY; DRAINAGE; etc. Its widest application is intravascular ultrasound imaging but it is useful also in urology and intra-abdominal conditions.

Minimally invasive procedures guided with the aid of magnetic resonance imaging to visualize tissue structures.

Minimally invasive procedures, diagnostic or therapeutic, performed within the BLOOD VESSELS. They may be perfomed via ANGIOSCOPY; INTERVENTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; INTERVENTIONAL RADIOGRAPHY; or INTERVENTIONAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY.
