Application of neuronavigation in Neurosurgery at King Hussein Medical Center, Jordan

Abdullah al-akayleh.


Abstract

Objective
To evaluate use of neuronavigation in interdisciplinary surgery for complicated
tumors or trauma of the anterior or lateral skull base.
Methods
Neuronavigation image guidance was used in the surgical management of 40
patients, one with large orbital roof meningioma causing proptosis and visual
deterioration, and the others with small cortical tumor, motor strip lesion and larger
size tumors.
Results
The patients underwent successful cranial surgery aided by intraoperative
neuronavigation. The orbital roof meningioma was removed completely with no
damage to the frontal sinus and motor strip lesions without neurological deficit and
with good cosmetic result.
Conclusion
Image-guided neuronavigation in our cases allowed for safe and precise surgery, with
avoidance of complications. (Rawal Med J 2010;35: ).

Key words: Intraoperative imageā€“guided neurosurgery, neuronavigation.
