This quantity comprises chosen contributions from the XIth assembly of the ecu Society for Stereotactic and useful Neurosurgery held in September 1994 in Antalyaffurkey. many of the papers care for the numerous healing and technical developments made during this box of neurosurgery. The emergence of latest stereotactic methodologies akin to frameless stereotaxy and other kinds of neuronavigation became an vital instrument for all sorts of neurosurgical operations. increasingly more younger neurosurgeons takes an curiosity within the neurosurgical methods to the therapy of circulation issues, power soreness and epilepsy. it is a transparent signal ofthe turning out to be information of the lengthy ignored proven fact that those neurosurgical remedies should be provided to massive sufferer populations. Neurotransplantation as a unique therapy of Parkinson's illness has prepared the ground for the applying of this know-how for different symptoms. The pioneering paintings played by way of the overdue Edward Hitchcock is reviewed the following. there's a renewed curiosity in pallidotomy for facing yes sorts of Parkinson's disorder and sure features of this operation are mentioned in one other paper. development within the neurosurgical remedy of discomfort is handled by way of contributions on sophisticated ideas of percutaneous cordotomy, DREZ operations and significant reviews of spinal twine stimulation. a unique method is a file at the reports of treating melanoma soreness through intraspinal implantation of chromaffin cells. a number of contributions hide the $64000 problems with novel innovations for the examine of neural disorder, peroperative tracking with puppy, microrecording, magneto-encephalography and different techniques.

Example text

The uninhibited contractions were reduced or suppressed in 50% of cases, even if a optimal control of hypertonia and spasms oflower limbs was present in all patients during urodynamic study. We can suppose that the "effective dose" able to suppress the lower limb spasticity is, in some cases, not enough to achieve an optimal effect on the hyperactive bladder. In experimental studies, the depression of micturition reflex was obtained only with very high doses, probably caused by depression of supraspinal centers (ponto-mesencephalic micturation center) [9,14].
