High-Frequency Intra-operative Ultrasound-Guided Surgery of Superficial Intra-cerebral Lesions via a Single-Burr-Hole Approach


Burkhardt, Jan-Karl; Serra, Carlo; Neidert, Marian C; Woernle, Christoph M; Fierstra, Jorn; Regli, Luca; Bozinov, Oliver (2014). High-Frequency Intra-operative Ultrasound-Guided Surgery of Superficial Intra-cerebral Lesions via a Single-Burr-Hole Approach. Ultrasound in Medicine & Biology, 40(7):1469-1475.

Abstract

The study described here examined the feasibility of using high-frequency intra-operative ultrasound (hfioUS) guidance to resect superficial intra-cerebral lesions through a single burr hole. A cohort of 23 consecutive patients with a total of 24 intra-cerebral lesions (9 intra-cerebral metastases, 8 gliomas, 4 infections, 2 lymphomas and 1 cavernoma) were studied. All lesions could be localized and successfully resected, biopsied or aspirated, and histopathological diagnoses were obtained in all cases. The mean operating time was 59.6 ± 23.9 min. The mean cross-sectional lesion size was 6.4 ± 7.6 cm(2), and the mean cortex surface-to-lesion distance was 0.6 ± 0.8 cm. Our results illustrate the feasibility of identifying and resecting superficial intra-cerebral lesions under hfioUS guidance via a single-burr-hole approach. We were able to achieve short resection times with no post-operative complications in all patients, favorable conditions under which to start adjuvant therapy when indicated.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
