Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In neurosurgery, surgical treatment employing a microscope has been the mainstay of therapy, but the roles of endovascular treatment, endoscopy, exoscope, and stereotactic radiation therapy are certainly expanding. However, from a global perspective, microscope surgery still holds a crucial position. Despite advancements in various surgical equipment, it is vital to remember that it is the surgeons who perform the surgeries, and the transmission of individual surgeons' education and technical nuances is indispensable.

In this project, we aim to examine the nuances of techniques in order to enhance surgical outcomes, education in those techniques, key points in the application of the latest surgical equipment, postoperative management considerations in the development of various novel drugs, as well as long-term prognosis and effectiveness. It is unclear whether the true treatment outcomes desired by patients can be adequately presented based solely on the short-term results of novel treatments. We look forward to receiving contributions from neurosurgeons, neurologists, and neuroradiologists regarding the latest diagnosis and treatment strategies and diagnostic equipment, and their clinically relevant and realistic effects.

Guest Editor
