Initial Clinical Experience with a High Definition Exoscope System for Microneurosurgery
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.
