Stella - An advancement in SEEG epilepsy treatment (Stereoelectroencephalography) (mp4)

File size: 543.17 MB Language: English Dimensions: 640 x 360 px

Hear how after a decade of severe epilepsy since infancy, and 5 ineffective invasive operations, Stella Mäkinen is "born again" thanks to life changing advances in the field of neurosurgery. Told by Stella's mother and medical experts at the Niguarda Ca' Granda Hospital (Milan, Italy), this video highlights advances that enable neurosurgeons to accurately reach brain structures deep in the brain, which then enables epileptologists to study the precise origin of seizures and the spreading of seizures throughout the brain’s complex structure. Renishaw's neuromate® stereotactic robot was used by surgeons at the Niguarda Ca' Granda Hospital to implant multiple electrodes in order to identify epileptogenic zones. This accurate identification results in highly tailored resection surgery deployed on patients such as Stella who have refractive epilepsy.
