How stereotaxic surgery works on seizure


Hippocampi and amygdaloid are parts of Papez circuit in limbic system, whose functions are related to emotion, cognition, memory, language expression and smell. However, hippocampal sclerosis easily results in seizure focuses, when amygdaloid and hippocampi amplify the epileptic discharge. To destroy amygdaloid, hippocampi and Forel-H by surgery not only cuts down the excitement of the enhanced structure that inducing seizure, but also weakens (destroys) the conduction pathway of epileptic discharge and regulates the functional derangement of limbic system. 

Devices
Remebot robot is the most advanced neurosurgical assisted positioning system in the world. It is widely applied to the surgeries of high accuracy like epileptic surgery. Currently there are only two Remebot robots in China, and one was installed in Beijing Tiantan Puhua International Hospital in Jun. 2015.

Remebot robot stereotaxic positioning assisted system set up the mile stone of stereotaxic technology by integrating surgery plan system, navigation function and robot assisted positioning and operating system (which can provide haptic feedback, the advanced visualization function).

Remebot robot works remarkably in SEEG deep brain electrode implantation in epileptic surgery, it breaks through the limitation of traditional frame-type stereotaxic positioning device and navigation system, and effectively improves the accuracy and safety of epilepsy surgery. 


 


Effects of Treatment

  1. Small trauma with little effects on tissues around
  2. Positioning accuracy of 1- 2 mm
  3. Accurately destroy the deep and little lesions that can not be found or removed through brain surgery
  4. It can perform deep electrode detection or destroy the seizure focuses directly
  5. High safety
  6. Patient can discharge after postoperative observation for 1 – 3 days
Patient can discharge after postoperative observation for 1 – 3 daysPatient can discharge after postoperative observation for 1 – 3 days

Eligible Candidates

  • Patients whose lesions cannot be detected through MRI
