Cervical Cordotomy — Schwartz Technique

  • Ludwig G. Kempe

Abstract

In recent years we have adopted the Schwartz technique of high cervical cordotomy as an improvement on the method described in Chapter XI. This procedure takes much less time and is well tolerated even by very sick patients. Compared to the technique of percutaneous cordotomy, this operation can be done just as quickly and has the advantage of direct visualization.
