Stereotactic frame biopsy CRW is the procedure for the targeted collection of a sample from each individual lesion (glioma, CNS lymphoma, CNS toxoplasmosis, etc.) in deep regions of the brain that are not readily accessible or are not suitable for surgery but need to be diagnosed for further adjunctive treatment.
It is performed with the help of a special stereotactic frame that is applied to the patient's head and with the use of special software using the patient's CT, gives us the exact locus of the damage with millimeter accuracy, so that the targeted material is taken. It is performed under local anesthesia.
The stereotactic frame is initially placed on the patient's head and then the patient is directed to a CT scanner, where imaging and downloading of the coordinates of the lesion are performed.
The patient is then taken to surgery, where under local anesthesia, a hole in the scalp is made for the targeted acquisition of the material (biopsy).
The surgical procedure lasts 10 minutes. The patient remains in the hospital for 24 hours for the necessary monitoring.
