Basic Set of Neurosurgical Instruments : Description of Set
The Basic Set of Neurosurgical Instruments has been selected and compiled for classic emergency decompression procedures such as craniotomy, laminectomy and peripheral nerve surgery. The WFNS and Aesculap have succeeded in preparing a set that is the perfect addition to the general set of instruments available in almost every surgical department around the world.

The set is based on experience gained under relatively simple conditions where there is no access to highly sophisticated imaging technologies such as CTand MRI nor to a major neurosurgical centre.

The quality of the instruments is excellent and guarantees that the set is absolutely sufficient for straightforward basic neurosurgical procedures. Power-driven tools are intentionally not included be working in every environment. Haemostatic agents, silver clips and bone wax are also not part of the set.
