AIM The clinical importance of intraoperative microrecordings for subthalamic nucleus (STN) localization in neurosurgical practice remains a matter of debate in the various groups. METHODS To investigate their usefulness in localizing the STN, we retrospectively evaluated how intraoperative microelectrode recordings changed the targeting of the STN estimated only on intraoperative stimulation and neuroanatomic targeting procedures. For neuroradiologic targeting of the nucleus we used a TC-MRI… CONTINUE READING
