Abstract

CASARES DELGADO, Jorge A et al. Predictive factors for the evolution in patients treated with stereotactic technique in Camagüey. AMC [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.4, pp.705-713. ISSN 1025-0255.

Background: the treatment of intracranial lesions by stereotactic techniques has increased today as part of minimal invasive surgical techniques. Objective: to characterize the behavior of patients treated by this method. Method: a longitudinal and prospective analytical study was conducted in the neurosurgical ward at the University Hospital Manuel Ascunce Domenech. The universe was made up of 110 patients subject to stereotactic procedure from February 2007 to September 2010. Non probabilistic-type sample was used and it coincided with the universe. A survey was made for data collecting, multivariate and univariate techniques of data processing were used. Results: male patients between 31 and 60 years old with deep lesions of glial origin prevailed. Factors that influenced in the evolution of patients were consciousness disturbances, endocranial hypertension and midline shift lesions. Conclusions: factors that influenced in the evolution of patients were identified.
