Stereotaxic device for percutaneous twist-drill insertion of depth electrodes and for brain biopsy. Technical note.

Abstract

A stereotaxic device is described for percutaneous twist-drill insertion of depth electrodes for seizure recording and brain biopsy. This apparatus, which permits a lateral orthogonal approach, has been used in conjunction with a Leksell type of stereotaxic frame. Its main advantages are the ample working space it provides at the site of insertion of… (More)
