Conference paper


By 1988 many advanced technical applications are under discussion in neurosurgery. These include LASER, CUSA, evoked potential controls, neurostimulation, implantable medication systems, superselective embolizations, various irradiation approaches, and others (Fasano 1986; Pluchino and Broggi 1988; Walter et al. 1988).
