abstract

  • Ommaya reservoirs can be placed accurately using different methods. Although there are slight differences between fluoroscopy and frameless stereotaxy in quantitative accuracy and procedure time, there is no significant advantage of method over the other when evaluating revision or complication rates. Technique familiarity and surgeon preference may dictate the preferred procedure.
