Research by traditional methods of collection of data from case files, proformas, registers and master charts is laborious and cumbersome process. Case files in the hospital record section are often not easily accessible and can get lost. Moreover manually recorded and analysed data occupies lot of space. This entire tedious business is highly simplified by using computer software for record keeping and its analysis. We describe the development of a comprehensive, user friendly software programme for neurosurgeons using FoxPro to analyse data of cerebral aneurysm patients. Data entry is done with the help of prompted picklist instead of codes, the selection of which is tapping a key without the need to type it. This entered data is automatically converted into a computer database which generates more than 75 tables and graphs of predetermined nature and covers most of the parameters a neurosurgeon would be interested in. This coded database also generates a discharge summary in a flowing text. The prototype of programme has been used in our first hundred patients of cerebral aneurysm and debugged while analysing the next fifty.
