PURPOSE Accurate craniotomy placement is essential for frameless neuronavigation in minimally invasive neurosurgery. A craniotomy using virtual reality (VR) can be as accurate as neuronavigation. METHODS We prospectively enrolled 48 patients that underwent minimally invasive cranial procedures planned using VR, followed by neuronavigation. First,(More)
BACKGROUND In the past 2 decades, intraoperative navigation technology has changed preoperative and intraoperative strategies and methodology tremendously. OBJECTIVE To report our first experiences with a stereoscopic navigation system based on multimodality-derived, patient-specific 3-dimensional (3-D) information displayed on a stereoscopic monitor and(More)
INTRODUCTION The first-line treatment for acromegaly is transsphenoidal surgery. In approximately 50% of patients, however, a cure is not possible with surgery and alternatives are needed. Somatostatin analog therapy is the recommended first-line treatment in patients with such cases. Here we provide the first report of a high-dose lanreotide primary(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known on the long-term course of patients treated for intracranial solitary fibrous tumors (iSFT). We therefore retrospectively reviewed the charts of our patients who underwent Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS) for iSFT at Klinik Im Park in Zurich and who were treated by one of the authors. Between 1994 and 2009, two patients underwent(More)
Clival chordomas confront the surgeon with the task of resecting an aggressively invasive and destructive tumor in a critical surrounding. For many, mainly smaller, chordomas, the transnasal transclival approach is a feasible and safe surgical access. Larger tumors and especially those with extensive intradural, retrochiasmal, and/or deep cervical expansion(More)
In this publication, the authors describe the microanatomic topography of the entire paraclinoid area with respect to the paraclinoid segment of the internal carotid artery and its surrounding anatomical structures. Special attention was given to the borders of the paraclinoid area, cavernous sinus, arterial vessels, and cranial nerves passing through the(More)
