Minimally Invasive Parafasicular Surgery (MIPS) Inaugural International Course

Advances in Subcortical Neurosurgery: Minimally Invasive Parafasicular Surgery (MIPS) Inaugural International Course, held on May 18-19, 2019 in Granada Spain.

Managing subcortical abnormalities has historically posed a difficult challenge for neurosurgeons as non-disruptive access has been limited. This course provides an open forum to discuss potential evidence-based solutions to this challenge and others.

  • Can disruption of surrounding healthy tissue be minimised when accessing deep lesions without compromising extent of resection?

  • How can visualisation be maximized through a narrow corridor?

  • Is bi-manual technique applicable in minimally disruptive approaches?

  • What lessons can be learned surrounding hemostasis management in an air medium while operating in the subcortical space?

These questions and more will be addressed by faculty over the course of the one-day training, including current evidence on clinical and economical outcomes. New technologies will be introduced as part of an efficient, integrated, systems approach, and a hands-on skills lab will provide same-day experience with the methods and technologies reviewed.

The need for solutions to managing subcortical disease is at the forefront of this training aimed to provide surgeons an overview of new integrated methods for addressing these challenges.
