Abstract

Mislocalization errors caused by MR image distortions or brain shift are one of the main causes of complications after stereotactically guided neurosurgical procedures. A special device, which could ameliorate such effects and provide intraoperative acquisition of MR images of sufficient diagnostic accuracy, was developed. It is composed of a radiofrequency receiver coil integrated with a modified Komai stereotactic frame and a Sugita four-pin head holder. Clinical testing revealed that the use of the device during stereotactically guided procedures under the control of low magnetic field strength (0.3 T) intraoperative MRI ameliorates the effects of brain shift, and permits to obtain informative tissue samples and to perform aggressive removal of the lesion without any damage of the eloquent cerebral structures. The possibility of an easy shift from a stereotactically guided to a routine microneurosurgical procedure represents an additional benefit of the developed device.
