ADVANCED CONCEPTS AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES APPLIED IN NEUROSURGERY
50TH ANNIVERSARY OF NEUROSURGERY IN NOVARA (Italy)
The advancements in basic sciences and the availability of sophisticated technological aids have led over the last few years to the rise of innovative surgical strategies, the identification of better prognostic/predictive biomolecular factors, and the development of novel drugs all meant to profoundly impact the outcome of neurosurgical patients. This thesis touches upon the window of opportunity to exploit bioengineering techniques in three subspecialties of this vast discipline: neuro-oncology, radiosurgery and neuro-traumatology. After a thorough identification of some unresolved clinical problems and the limits of current management strategies in those areas, some technical solutions are proposed and defined from either experimental hypothesis or clinical research investigations.
