Intraspinal Stem Cell Transplantation

Neurosurgery

This narrated video demonstrates the process of intraspinal microinjection with use of a floating cannula. The cannula is introduced into the cord in rigid confirmation. After the microinjection needle is firmly seated into the spinal cord, the rigid outer cannula is withdrawn. The flexible silastic inner cannula is then able to move with cardioballistic and respiratory-associated cord movement. At microinjection completion, the outer cannula is returned to its original position and the injection cannula is withdrawn.

Endoscopic LT Fenestration Video 1

Neurosurgery

Intraoperative endoscopic video of the lamina terminalis fenestration procedure. The video starts with a standard endoscopic third ventriculostomy and exploration of the basal cisterns. Very limited space for adequate CSF flow within the cisterns was noted. Proceeding with the LT fenestration, the tip of the flexible neuroendoscope is bent ventraly. The optic chiasm is identified. Utilizing a closed grasping forceps for the initial fenestration, the lamina terminalis is perforated. The ostomy is slowly enlarged with the neuroendoscope itself. The anterior communicating artery complex is identified. The ostomy is further enlarged if necessary.

Endoscopic LT Fenestration Video 2

Neurosurgery

Intraoperative endoscopic video of the lamina terminalis fenestration procedure. The video starts with the neuroendoscope in the third ventricle looking at the tuber cinerum and optic chiasm. After identifying the optic chiasm, the tip of the flexible neuroendoscope is bent anteriorly, the suprachiasmatic recess and the lamina terminalis are identified next. Once in position, with a closed grasping forceps, the lamina terminalis is perforated. The ostomy is slowly enlarged with the grasping forceps or with the neuroendoscope itself. The anterior communicating artery complex and its branches are identified. The ostomy is further enlarged if necessary. The free edges of the ostomy move with the pulsation of the brain indicating CSF flow. The purpose of this second video is to show that the position of the anterior communicating artery may vary, in this case the ostomy was made closer to the artery but still below it.

Initial Clinical Experience with a High Definition Exoscope System for Microneurosurgery

Neurosurgery

Demonstrating the set-up and use of the HD-XOscope during a single level anterior cervical diskectomy (C5-6, case 7. The magnified surgical views were taken directly from the HD-XOscope and transferred to DVD prior to editing. The video demonstrates the ability to perform the diskectomy, as well as placement of an inter-body graft and spinal instrumentation under direct high definition magnified view, and without the need to move the scope out of the field of view during placement of instrumentation. The image quality seen on the video is less than that typical seen with the XO-scope because the video capture device is unable to acquire HD images.
