The earliest surgical procedures on the brain stem parenchyma were directed at sectioning specific fiber pathways to alleviate pain. Subsequently, some tumors, abscesses, and vascular lesions that displace rather than invade the parenchyma have been successfully removed. Future advances depend on the ability to preserve and restore neural function in operated tissue.
