A laboratory-training model was created for microneurosurgical intervention of intrinsic brain tumor ablation covering microdissection of the brain tissue and opening of the pia mater, dissection and separation of the sulcal and cisternal structures, dissection and removal of the tumor tissue. Left front parietal lobe was used as the area of interest for this experimental study. One-centimeter cube polyurethane foam was injected into two centimeters deep inside the brain tissue using plastic injection tube. Following five minutes the model was ready to use under the operating microscope for dissection, separation, and removing of the tumor tissue. The compatibility of the training model was also evaluated as poor, acceptable and perfect.
