As an addition to the eu postgraduate education approach for younger neurosurgeons we started to post in 1974 this sequence of Advances and Technical criteria in Neurosurgery which used to be later backed via the ecu organization of Neurosurgical Societies. This sequence used to be first mentioned in 1972 at a mixed assembly of the Italian and German Neurosurgical Societies in Taormina, the founding fathers of the sequence being Jean Brihaye, Bernard Pertuiset, Fritz Loew and Hugo Krayenbiihl. hence have been demonstrated the rules of eu co­ operation which were born from the eu spirit, flourished within the eu organization, and feature all through been linked to this sequence. the truth that the English language is easily so one can changing into the overseas medium at eu clinical meetings is a smart asset when it comes to mutual realizing. hence we have now made up our minds to put up all contributions in English, whatever the local language of the authors. All contributions are submitted to the full editorial board sooner than publi­ cation of any quantity. Our sequence isn't meant to compete with the courses of unique clinical papers in different neurosurgical journals. Our goal is, quite, to give fields of neurosurgery and similar parts within which vital contemporary advances were made. The contributions are written by way of experts within the given fields and represent the 1st a part of each one volume.

Example text

In highly symptomatic p~tients, relief can be obtained by repeated lumbar punctures (Wyler 1997, Zentner 1997). ' these complications are probably secondary to excessive brain retraction or sacrifice of bridging veins and were reported in earlier series (van Wagenen et al. 1940, Wilson et al. 1977, 1978). Clinically, they manifest by altered consciousness and sensory-motor deficits. Haemorrhage and infection: nowadays these complications should be similar to that of standard neurosurgical procedures.

1990, Madsen et al. 1995, Roberts 1995, Wyler 1997). The aims of corpus callosotomy have however to be clearly precised to the patients and their family: callosotomy is a palliative procedure which does not have the same goals and results as resective surgery, in which seizure-free outcome is more likely and thus expectations are much higher. Preoperative Evaluation Preoperative work up should include the recording of habitual seizures to rule out any potentially resectable focus. A MRI scan is also mandatory to disclose any structural abnormality that might be at the origin of epilepsy.
