ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The operative microscope represents, to date, the standard for neurosurgical procedures. However, new technologies have been proposed during the latest years to overcome its limitations, from high-quality exoscopes to complex robotized visualization systems. We report our preliminary experience with a novel digital robotized microscope, the BHS RoboticScope (RS), for minimally invasive spinal surgery.

METHODS: We employed the RS in five consecutive patients who underwent bilateral lumbar spine decompression through a monolateral approach. Patient outcomes, device technical characteristics, and the surgeon’s personal perspectives have been evaluated.

RESULTS: No complications occurred. All procedures were concluded without switching to the microscope. Image quality, lightning, depth perception, and freedom of movement were judged satisfactory as compared to the standard microscope.

CONCLUSION: The easy maneuverability and the high quality of pictures provided by the RS device improve the surgeon’s comfort in deep fields, representing an effective option for minimally invasive spinal procedures. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
