The Use of Tubular Retractors to Access Deep Brain Lesions

Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Raj Mukherjee discusses the use of tubular retractors to access deep brain lesions. This tool allows smaller incisions and minimal trauma to the surrounding brain. Mukherjee’s team analyzed data from 50 patients who had surgery using tubular retractors and saw a trend toward shorter recovery time, fewer complications and overall better quality of life.
