Monitoring motor function during resection of tumours in the lower brain stem and fourth ventricle

Abstract

Even in the days of modern microsurgery, the removal of a brain stem lesion remains a surgical challenge. Especially when operating on children, the prognosis is directly related to the radicality of the resection; however, a radical resection is often associated with surgical morbidity. Intraoperative neuromonitoring could help to minimise the surgical… (More)
