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.

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...
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 ...
Traditional approaches for retroperitoneal lumbar plexus schwannomas involve anterior open or laparoscopic resection. For select tumors, the lateral retroperitoneal approach provides a minimally invas...

Retrorectal tumors are rare tumors that require resection for symptoms, malignancy and potential malignant transformation. Traditional approaches have included laparotomy, perineal excision or a combi...
This is a clinical trial where patients who present to the neurosurgery service in need of a procedure that requires a pterional craniotomy will be screened, and if eligible, enrolled for ...
The effectiveness of craniotomy in the treatment of intracerebral hemorrhage remains controversial. Two main types of minimally invasive surgery, endoscopic evacuation and stereotactic asp...
50 patients are randomized to two groups who receive a navigated knee prosthesis. Aim of the study is a comparison between a minimally invasive and a conventional approach. In both groups ...
Non-traumatic intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) affects approximately 100,000 Americans yearly. Up to 30-50% of ICH is fatal, and those patients who survive are often left with significant ne...
A prospective study is planned for managment of low rectal cancer with the aim of sphincter preservation and improving the oncological outcome of the patients, through comparing of both ap...
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.
