- Improvement of extent of resection by the use of intraoperatively acquired image data sets to navigate.
- Better define the role of different intra-operative imaging modalities, used to update the navigational data set, in aiding the surgeon during resection of intra-axial brain lesions.
There is increasing neuro-oncological evidence that extent of resection might have an impact in particular in low-grade lesions.

The main goal of high grade glioma (HGG) surgery is to achieve gross total resection (GTR) without causing new neurological deficits1-8. Intraoperative navigated high resolution ultrasound...
Phase IIa Safety and Light Dose-Escalation Study in Patients With Primary or Recurrent/High-Grade Glioma Using the Litx™ System to Confirm the Zone of Tumor Destruction During the Intraoperative Treatment of Glioma
The pupose of this study is to demonstrate the safety of the Litx™ therapy and confirm the zone of tumor destruction with escalated light doses following intraoperative treatment of prim...
This study plans to learn more about if fluorescein with intraoperative Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is as good as intraoperative MRI (iMRI) alone in detecting the presence of tumor ti...
Pituitary adenoma can be difficult to cure with approximately a third of patients in contemporary series' undergoing incomplete resection. Over the last decade or so a handful of groups ha...
This study evaluates whether use of intraoperative ultrasound during laparoscopic or robotic myomectomy impacts quality of life. Half of participants will undergo laparoscopic or robotic m...
In glioma operations, we sought to analyze sensitivity, specificity and predictive values of intraoperative 3D ultrasound (US) for detecting residual tumor compared to early postoperative MR imaging. ...
Intraoperative pneumothorax during general anesthesia is a dangerous event. It is a possible cause of sudden intraoperative hypoxia, which can be critical especially in high-risk patients such as thos...
Pharyngoesophageal foreign bodies (FBs) are common otolaryngologic problems, but challenging cases cause significant patient and surgeon frustration. Extraluminal migration of an FB from the pharynx o...
Surgical care is essential to improving population health, but metrics to monitor and evaluate the continuum of surgical care delivery have rarely been applied in low-resource settings, and improved e...
Awake surgery is an effective technique to increase safety in surgical resection of lesions involving eloquent areas of brain. Intraoperative imaging guidance and neuronavigation are widely applied in...
The systematic checking of the condition and function of a patient's CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM during the course of a surgical operation.
Occurence of a patient becoming conscious during a procedure performed under GENERAL ANESTHESIA and subsequently having recall of these events. (From Anesthesiology 2006, 104(4): 847-64.)
The period during a surgical operation.
The constant checking on the state or condition of a patient during the course of a surgical operation (e.g., checking of vital signs).
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
