whether you are targeting the subthalamic nucleus (STN). Radionics CRW™ enabling clamp 10 . the target position can be verified to reduce the effects of brain shift on placement accuracy. the thalamus (TH) or the ever more challenging pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN).11 neuro | guide™ with the Elekta AB Leksell enabling clamp neuroguide™ can be integrated into your existing practice.neuro | guide™ guide tube kit Aiming high Renishaw’s neuroguide™ electrode introducer kit allows you to implant and guide DBS electrodes to targeted anatomy within the brain. By requiring fewer trajectories through the approximate target volume. surgery times and the risk of haemorrhage are both reduced. used in combination with or instead of microelectrode recording. the neuroguide™ remains in place so you can deliver positional accuracy without having to repeat the full stereotactic procedure. All this enables you to obtain precision and accuracy. Using MRI. benefiting you and your patient. In the event of a revision. saving time and money. the globus palladus interna (GPi).
