Stereotactic minimally invasive tubular retractor system for deep brain lesions.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Deep-seated supratentorial intraparenchymal and intraventricular brain lesions can be difficult to access without causing significant trauma to the overlying cortex and intervening white matter tracts. Traditional brain retractors use multiple blades, which do not exert pressure in an equally distributed fashion. Tubular retractors offer an… (More)
