About these proceedings


Today the phrase "Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery" characterizes numerous neurosurgical technologies, techniques and interventions. This book summarizes all facets of this new and rapidly developing field in neurosurgery. Beside neuroendoscopy the main topics are neuronavigation, functional neurosurgery, radiosurgery, neurotransplantation and molecular neurosurgery. Although these topics are not discussed in their full variety, the state of the art and future perspectives of minimally invasive neurosurgery are presented.
