Abstract

Due to the rapid development in micro- and nanofabrication technologies, several types of medical implants have been proposed and applied successfully in neurosurgery. In order to determine the safety margins and design rules of newly emerged realization techniques, in vivo mechanical characterisation is essential to be performed. In this work, experimental investigation is presented focusing on the interaction between rat brain tissue and single-shaft silicon microprobes fabricated by deep reactive ion etching. Physical parameters like penetration force and dimpling were studied in terms of insertion speed (mm/min range) and microprobe cross-section. Insertions were performed through intact dura and pia mater.
