Training in cerebrovascular surgery, and particularly in the microsurgical treatment of intracranial aneurysms, is nowadays a concern of many neurosurgery residency programs all over the world. Due to the development of endovascular procedures those past twenty years, we observe a drastic reduction in operated cases. Simulation could be a promising option for training and maintaining the high level of expertise that is expected. Therefore, we developed a simulator prototype reproducing the microsurgical approach and the intracranial aneurysms clipping. This work has been done in collaboration with a neurosurgeon, Laurent Thinès.
