Abstract: -Treatment of intracranial tumoral lesions is related to its correct histological diagnostic. We present a retrospective analysis of 32 patients submitted to 36 cerebral biopsies using neuronavigation and 44 patients using frame-based stereotaxy. Mean age was 46.6 and 49.3 years old respectively. Sex distribution in both groups was 50% for each. Most of lesions were lobar in both groups. Diagnostic yielding was 91.7% and 83.4%, respectively (p=0.26). We found in the postoperative CT scans intracranial hemorrha… Show more

“…The prevalence of asymptomatic haemorrhage documented in the literature ranged from 3.4 to 50% [1,7,9,12,18,25,36,40]. One of the reasons for such a wide range might be that postoperative haemorrhage is not strictly defined.…”

“…Consequently, while frame-based stereotaxy is still used, particularly, in the setting of deep brain stimulation, frameless systems have been increasingly adopted for brain biopsy [22,23] and brain tumor surgery [24–26]. Importantly, frameless systems provide comparable accuracy with frame-based systems [27,28]. In addition, the use of frameless stereotaxy has been shown to be safe and effective in collecting diagnostic tissues in both eloquent and non-eloquent regions of the brain [29].…”

“…The principle components of frameless stereotactic surgery include a probe, a computer-based image module, and a reference. Frameless stereotactic navigation has been shown to achieve accuracy of 2–3 mm based on electrode-based studies, as well as good accuracy and safety regarding access of deep intracranial lesions [11,14-15]. Errors in frameless stereotaxy generally involve factors outside the computer-based modules, such as the quality / timing of the preoperative imaging or factors that cause brain shift during the surgery [16].…”
