Comparison of Neuro-navigational Systems for Resection-Control of Brain Tumors

- 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.

- To examine the cost-effectiveness of different intraoperative navigational systems as a function of operative time and Operative time (Surgery including imaging)

There is increasing neuro-oncological evidence that extent of resection might have an impact in particular in low-grade lesions.

Intraoperative hypoxia secondary to pneumothorax: The role of lung ultrasound.

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...

Intraoperative ultrasound-guided retrieval of an extraluminal pharyngoesophageal foreign body.

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...

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
