Stereotactic electroencephalography (SEEG) is a minimally invasive surgical and electrophysiological technique to identify the epileptic zone (EZ) in pharmacoresistant epilepsy. The application of robotic technology in SEEG improves precision and accuracy, allowing multiple trajectory angles, obviating the need for arduous, time-consuming stereotactic frame adjustments. Accuracy of SEEG was calculated using entry point errors (EPE), target point errors (TPE) calculated as Euclidean distances between the planned trajectories and actual trajectories. Various studies reported improved accuracy of robotic SEEG along with shorter surgical time. Martinez et al. reported 3.5 hours faster than conventional SEEG and a major morbidity rate of 1%.[1] Technological developments and increased application of technology in the medical fields have contributed to the more widespread robotic assistance practice in neurosurgery. In this abstract illustration, we intend to show the application of the robotic arm in SEEG.
