The final ten years has witnessed a resurgence of curiosity in stereotactic surgical procedure even supposing this has been in most cases within the box of the relatively uncomplicated stereotactic biopsy of intracranial tumours. there's additionally facts of a returning curiosity in useful neurosurgery except ache which has continually sustained excessive degrees of endeavour. the current paintings includes chosen papers from a far better crew of attention-grabbing and critical communications to the eu Society for Stereotactic and sensible Neurosurgery. They characterize smooth perspectives on a wide selection of stereotactic surgical subject matters from the world over acclaimed specialists during this box. The neurosurgeon who has very little acquaintance with this fruitful sub-specialty should be shocked to discover very vast purposes of the approach that is progressively changing many con­ ventional neurosurgical strategies. this is often rather obtrusive within the papers on tumours yet there's additionally a piece at the remedy of vascular sickness which marks an extension of neurosurgical perform. The Society has continually looked technical advances as very important and a few of the newest devel­ opments look during this publication. ultimately, an exhilarating new improvement of neural transplantation marks the start of what could be an enormous a part of neurological surgical procedure within the future.
