Abstract

Seven French neurosurgical missions, from June 1994 to December 1996, weresent successively to Bosnia-Herze-govina with tile help of a non-governmental organisation "Medecins du Monde". The aim of this article is to pre sent tile working conditions, make an overall evaluation of tile missions and then to draw lessons and discuss the limits. The initial aim of these neurosurgical missions was: i) to provide human and logistic support to the Bosniac teams in the field; ii) to exchange knowledge and help in tile trainingof local young neurosurgeons; iii) to be present as witnesses. The towns of Tuzla and Zenica in Eastern and Central Bosnia respectively were chosen as tile missions bases. One hundred five neurosurgical operations were carried out in precarious conditions, particularly concerning anesthesia. The largest number of the operations (52 %) concerned standard neurosurgical pathologies, without an), direct link to the war bill which had been put off or made difficult due tothe war. Cranioplasties and peripheric nerve injuries were the main lesions directly related to the war situation which the French missions had to deal with. Actually, war neurosurgical pathologies were very often dealt within emergency by Bosniac teams in the field hospitals near die front. Previously existing "neuroslogical Environment", in particular with accessto a scanner is an absolute necessity to carry out a good quality neurosurgical mission. Precarious anesthia and operating conditions require the surgical team to adapt to local conditions, but are not a contra-indication tosuch missions. Although help in the field can prove useful on occasions, training the resident teams is important. This can be done locally, but additional training in a "neurosurgically developed" country is fundamental. Missions such as these require relatively major funding (about 150 000 Frenchfrancs for each of our missions) and suitable infrastructures. Prior to undertaking this type of mission, a neurosurgeon must evaluate local human and equiptment needs.
