After a hospitation stay within the Perneczky-Team for 2 years we (the authors) started an education project for training Mexican (and Latin-American) trainees in minimally invasive techniques in neurosurgery (MIN).
During a 15-year period since, the senior author (KR) visited Mexico at least once a year to give lectures, hands-on courses and life surgeries in MIN. Also he took part at several MIN-congresses and at the annual meeting of the Mexican neurosurgical society to give presentations. The Mexican colleagues visited Germany for scientific activities in 8 cities and Austria in 2 cities. He took part at the First Course of Ergonomics for MIN and several workshops in Neuro-sonography, Neuro-navigation in microsurgery, HMD-3D Neuro-endoscopy, Trans-endoscopic Neuro-sonography (ENS) and Advanced Surgical Anatomy in Plasinated Specimens. Recently the Mexican partner (HVS) gave a presentation at the Annual Austrian Neurosurgical Congress and at LKHF Neurosurgery and Ophthalmology departments.
Now the MIN became accepted in Mexico and the Mexican partner became chef of MIN service at University of Guadalajara/Mexico and president of the endoscopic section of the Mexican neurosurgical society. The second generation of trainees are just growing up and the MIN department became a training centre in Latin-American.
The project was funded by the DAAD (German Academic Foreign Service) and for selected parts by Richard Wolf Co. Foundation.
