Objective: The effects of intraoperative air collections on brain shift and the precision of stereotactic electrode implantation is a matter of ongoing debate. Methods: In 53 patients electrodes were implanted into the subthalamic nucleus (31), internal pallidum (12), or ventrolateral thalamus (9).[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
