Standard treatment of glioblastomas (GBMs) consists of microsurgical resection followed by concomitant chemoradiation. The extent of resection is one of the most important prognostic factors with significant influence on the survival of patients. State of the art technique to achieve the most radical resection possible in conventional surgery is fluorescence-guidance with 5-aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA). If available, intraoperative MRI (iMRI)-guided tumor ... Read More

Recently intraoperative motor evoked potential monitoring (MEP) is widely used to reduce neural damage during neurosurgery. As neuromuscular blockade(NMB) during MEP monitoring decreases the amplitude of MEP, partial NMB is usually maintained during general anesthesia. Continuous infusion of NMB agent is preferred than bolus infusion during MEP monitoring. There are a lot of NMB agents in clinical use. But there have been no reports about the effect of ...

Since neurological testing during neurosurgery, such as somato-sensory evoked potentials, motor-evoked potentials, auditory evoked potentials and visual evoked potentials are well maintained their wave-form reactivity with total intravenous anaesthesia technique better than inhalational anesthetic techniques, the standard anesthesia method for neurosurgery is usually total intravenous anaesthesia technique. Nonetheless, after finishing recording the evoked ... Read More

Failure of ventricular catheters remains a significant problem in patients with hydrocephalus. The purpose of this study is to determine whether the use of a simple instrument assisted by a smart phone application software can achieve a more precise placement of ventricular catheters than the standard free-hand placement technique.

54 patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease and freezing of gait resistant to subthalamic nucleus stimulation and dopaminergic medication will be included into this multicentre randomised controlled double-blinded parallel group clinical trial. The treatment consists of two different stimulation settings using (i) conventional stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus [standard STN] as active comparator and (ii) combined stimulation of active electrode ...

The prognosis of patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma is dismal despite recent therapeutic improvements Using standard therapy with temozolomide (TMZ) and radiotherapy (60 Gy), the median overall survival time (mOS) is 14.6 months (Stupp et al., 2005). Since in a previous non-randomized bicentric phase II trial, primary combination chemotherapy with lomustine (CCNU) and TMZ was highly effective (mOS 23 months; UKT-03 trial; Herrlinger et al., 2006; ...
