BACKGROUND: Accurately locating small subcortical brain lesions is very important for maximal surgical resection with minimal neurological damage. Intraoperative MRI has proved to be more precise than ultrasound, it is relatively expensive and is not available in all centers. Herein we describe a new, simple, safe and effective method for determining a small skin incision and craniotomy via skin staples combined with intraoperative ultrasonography to determine the margins, vascularity and residue of the lesion.
