  • anesthetic
  • As we become more involved in remote locations such as neuroimaging, the Interventional Radiology Suite, and non-invasive surgeries such as Gamma Knife, it is important that we maintain a thorough understanding of the procedure being performed, and the anesthetic requirements. (springer.com)
  • Movement
  • An increased understanding of the pathophysiology of these neurological diseases has been coupled with these technical improvements resulting in a significant increase in the application of restorative functional neurosurgical techniques to treat movement disorders. (frontiersin.org)
  • Controversy
  • The originator of the procedure, Portuguese neurologist António Egas Moniz, shared the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine of 1949 for the "discovery of the therapeutic value of leucotomy in certain psychoses", although the awarding of the prize has been subject to controversy.

  • The Incas appear to have practiced a procedure known as trepanation since the late Stone age, a method that is compared to similar techniques used today. (wikipedia.org)
  • Among
  • Among the surgical procedures performed in the U.S. that are projected to experience moderate to robust gains over the forecast period are carotid artery stenting, laparoscopic gastric bypass, percutaneous heart valve repair and replacement, robotic-assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy, robotic prostatectomy, and stem cell transplantation.

  • infection
  • However, by the 1400s, Incas proved to be "skilled surgeons", as survival rates rose to about 90%, infection rates following the procedure were low and evidence was found showing that some individuals survived the surgery on multiple occasions. (wikipedia.org)
