Summary of "Infuse-as-you-go convective delivery to enhance coverage of elongated brain targets: technical note."

To develop and assess a convective delivery technique that enhances the effectiveness of drug delivery to nonspherical brain nuclei, the authors developed an occipital "infuse-as-you-go" approach to the putamen and compared it to the currently used transfrontal approach.
