Functional Stereotactics

  • D. Andries Bosch


In chapter 3 we discussed the five fields of functional stereotactics with the purpose to give a short review of the diseases, which may be treated with stereotactic techniques. It should be emphasized, however, that in the fields of epilepsy, psychiatric illness and spasticity only a limited number of stereotactic centers is involved. Partly because of the fact, that in these fields centralization is obhgatory, and partly because the indications are less obvious and therefore depend on clinical experience, skill and to a lesser degree also on local habits.
