The Keck School of Medicine USC recently hosted an inaugural one-day resident and fellow training on the comprehensive management of subcortical lesions using the NICO BrainPath Approach, a tool developed by the NICO Corporation for removing deep-seated brain tumors using an exoscopic channel-based approach.

Gabriel Zada, MD, assistant professor of neurological surgery and director of the USC Endoscopic Skull Base Surgery Program, was joined by colleagues from the University of California, Irvine, and Indiana University School of Medicine for the event.

Attendees had a chance to engage at stations demonstrating BrainPath and Myriad,  tools developed by NICO for use in subcortical brain surgery, as well as participate in Intercerebral Hemorrhage (ICH) Skills and Tumor Skills labs.
