A mathematical model to quantify the spatio-temporal growth and invasion of gliomas in three dimensions throughout a virtual human brain. Virtual craniotomies successfully simulated a sampling of different operative environments that have the potential to play a significant role in neurosurgical training and operative planning worthy of further exploration and development. The model quantifies the extent of tumorous invasion of individual gliomas in three-dimensions to a degree beyond the limits of present medical imaging, including even microscopy, and makes clear why current therapies based on existing imaging techniques are inadequate and cannot be otherwise without other methods for detecting tumour cells in the brain.

Fluorescence imaging in neurosurgery has a long historical development, with several different biomarkers and biochemical agents being used, and several technological approaches. Endogenous autofluorescence, Exogenous agents that are in routine human use, Exogenous agents, with molecular targeting potential. In the use of these fluorescence biochemical probes, tumors have been visualized using different types of technologies as well, including: In vivo fluorescence microscopy; point spectroscopic tools for imaging one region at a time; modified surgical microscopes or laboratory grade stand-alone systems; commercial systems with built in fluorescence channels; combination systems which integrate fluorescence with spatial imaging.

Endovascular image guided procedures for the treatment of aneurysms, AVMs, carotid stenosis, strokes, and spinal malformations, and vasospasms are utilized by Endovascular Neurosurgery. Minimally invasive endoscopic surgery is commonly utilized by neurosurgeons when appropriate. Techniques such as endoscopic endonasal surgery are used in pituitary tumors, craniopharyngiomas, chordomas, and the repair of cerebrospinal fluid leaks.

Doctor–patient communication competencies are being assessed by psychometrically sound communication assessment tools,5 mobile information and communication systems,6 database and multimedia authoring tools,7 and the Medical House Call tool. These techniques and tools can only be applied to patients capable of communicating.If the patients are not capable of communicating as they are admitted to the emergency room, coupled with the limited time, the strategies are prone to failure. Therefore, for doctors communication and interpersonal skills, are as important as clinical skills and medical knowledge.

Brain surgery is performed to Clip off an aneurysm to prevent blood flow, Remove a tumor or a piece of tumor for a biopsy, Remove abnormal brain tissue, Drain blood or an infection and to free a nerve. The surgeon creates a hole in the skull and removes a bone flap, before surgery, the hair on part of the scalp is shaved and the area is cleaned. A tube with a light and camera on the end is inserted this is called an endoscope. MRI or CT scan can help guide the doctor to the proper place in the brain.

Brain surgery may be suggested by the neurosurgeon in one of the following conditions of patient abnormal blood vessels, aneurysm, bleeding, blood clots, damage to protective tissue, epilepsy, infections, nerve damage, Parkinson’s, pressure after injury, skull fracture, stroke and tumors. If the vessel ruptures, the open surgery is preferred.

Pediatric neurosurgical problems often are present for life. A pediatric neurosurgeon has the experience and qualifications to treat your child. Neurosurgical problems seen by pediatric neurosurgeons are often quite different from those commonly seen by adult or general neurosurgeons. Children cannot always answer medical questions, and are not always able to be patient and cooperative during a medical examination. pediatric neurosurgeons use equipment and facilities specifically designed for children.

Stereotactic neurosurgery method is used because of its advantages like Easy to use, Optimized design – sophisticated, yet simple and Versatility. A three-dimensional reference system and center-of-arc instrument advanced image-based planning software and a compact RF generator with remote control for physiological localization and brain lesioning. To locate small targets inside the body and to perform on them some action such as ablation, biopsy, lesion, injection, stimulation, implantation, radiosurgery etc.

Endoscopic neurosurgery is a standard practice to conventional macrosurgical techniques. If carpal tunnel is too narrow this surgery is contraindicated. The technique that uses a tube with a lens, a small camera and a light source to look into a body cavity through a small opening is called Endoscope that visualizes pathological condition. Endoscopic Endonasal Approach , Ventricular Endoscopy, Endoscopic Evacuation of Hematomas, Endoscopic-Assisted Trigeminal neuralgia and Hemifacial spasm are few Endoscopic neurosurgery’s.

Vascular neurosurgery has always been at the forefront of neurosurgical advances, requiring a combination of decision making, critical care support, microsurgical skill, and advanced surgical technology. For the experienced vascular neurosurgeon the operative conditions in the context of unruptured aneurysms are ideal and operative morbidities should be minimal.

Robotic surgery is no more a new technique to surgeons; vision-guided robotic system is under use by most of the neurosurgeons. Surgical robots in neurosurgery help in stereotactic procedures and endoscopic manoeuvres. To perform stereotactic and endoscopic procedures Robotic technology is generally used. Other common neurosurgical applications are robotised microscope, telepresence, and tumour resection.

Laser neurosurgery is under wide usage to improve the conventional techniques to treat cerebral lesions. Generally three laser sources combination is required surgery. The precise cutting and of shrinking by vaporization is possible with CO2 that finally removes lesion more complete without touching surrounding areas. Laser beam ablates or vaporizes the soft tissue with high water content in laser surgery.

*2016 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2014 and 2015 with the number of times they are cited in 2016 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2014 and 2015, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2016 then, impact factor = Y/X
