Abstract

Since the advent of navigational systems in neurosurgery, various implications have been introduced for them in spine and brain practices. Although, the range of surgeries in which these systems are being used is getting wider over time, their application is becoming more specific in certain situations. This means that defining specific indications for their usage is not as easy as it was previously thought. Brief reviewing of the available literature showed various navigation systems proposed and used in neurosurgery.  In this study, we review case selection criteria, techniques, and the results of neuronavigation applications in the patients underwent neurosurgical operations in the Sina hospital (Tehran, Iran) during 2011. The findings of our survey and experiences prove the efficacy and advantages of this technique that reduces the risk of neurovascular damage, neural tissue manipulation, operation time, and bleeding.
