OBJECT The magnetic stereotaxis system (MSS) is a device designed to direct catheter tips through magnetic forces. In this study the authors tested the safety and performance of the MSS in directing catheters through a nonlinear path to obtain biopsy specimens in pig brains. METHODS Sixteen pigs underwent biopsy of the frontal brain region with the aid of an MSS (11 pigs) or a standard stereotactic biopsy tool (five pigs). Surgical preparation consisted of placement of six fiducial markers in… CONTINUE READING
