This is the first of four volumes that together elaborate on an advanced minimally invasive neurosurgery (MIN) technique for cerebral hemorrhages, which makes it possible to prevent secondary injury by the hematoma and to preserve neurological function and accelerate neuropsychological recovery after the evacuation.
It describes in detail the theoretical, technical and training procedures necessary to carry out successful intracerebral hemorrhage evacuations using MIN techniques. A combination of mouth-tracked microsurgery, neuro-sonography, neuro-endoscopy, LASER and sealing makes highly effective, minimally invasive evacuation of all types of hematomas possible. The MIN Key Concept, an advanced new model based on the Keyhole Concept and MIN techniques is also presented. Lastly, the scientific basics of MIN are discussed and summarized.
A historical curriculum vitae is included in memory of the main pioneer of innovative MIN techniques, Prof. Axel Perneczky, to whom this book is dedicated.
Prof. h.c. Dr. Resch is a well known neurosurgeon working since 30 years on MIN. His main working fields are surgical neuro-anatomy and planning, ergonomics in neurosurgery, advanced micro-neurosurgery, endoscopic neurosurgery and ultrasound guided neurosurgery. He has a large experience in intracerebral hemorrhage evacuation using innovative minimally invasive interventions. For MIN research he developed a new concept and training/simulation environment and introduced the trans-endoscopic ultrasound to neurosurgery. Prof. Resch is contributing author of 14 books and main author of 2 book publications. He received several awards and honors, including the Rudolf-Schindler-Award and ISMINS Awards. He is one of the co-vice presidents of ISMINS, faculty member of several WFNS courses and annual courses of the MIN -Training project at University of Guadalajara/ Mexico since 16 years. His favorite ambition is philosophy and art of brain and mind.
