Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance image (MRI) data have been widely used to for navigation in various neurosurgical operations. However, delicate intracranial structures cannot be displayed using only one imaging method. Navigation with multimodality imaging was developed to better visualize these structures in glioma removal, but whether it is useful in endoscopic transsphenoidal surgery is unknown. We describe our clinical experience using multimodality imaging for navigation in endoscopic transsphenoidal surgeries.

The pedicled nasoseptal flap (NSF) is the widely accepted reconstructive technique of choice for repair of larger skull base defects after endoscopic endonasal approaches. There is a dearth of literat...
Contemporary surgical approaches to pituitary pathologies include transsphenoidal microsurgical and, more recently, endoscopic techniques. Data reporting direct costs in transsphenoidal pituitary surg...
This study proposes a method to analyze surgical performance by modeling, aligning, and comparing surgical processes. This method is intended to serve as a means to support the enhancement of surgical...
On account of the problem that traditional C-arm X-ray apparatus cannot provide precise route guidance for minimally invasive surgeries, we designed and developed a laser positioning and navigation sy...
To find out whether oral antibiotics given after transsphenoidal endoscopic surgery for pituitary adenoma improves sinus and nasal symptoms, reduces the incidence of infection (sinusitis),...
Endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery is a procedure for the treatment of pituitary macroadenomas that cause visual impairment through optic chiasm compression. The aim of this retr...
Colonoscopy is widely considered as the main choice for patients with suspected colorectal disease,and for screening those at high risk of colorectal cancer. The increasing widespread use ...
The endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery (EETS) is widely used. Although the incidence of complications is low, hypertensive episodes during surgery and awakening and cerebro spina...
•Sphenoid sinus is located in the body of sphenoid bone, closed with a thin plate of bone tissue that separates it from the surrounding important structures .Detailed, meticulous preoper...
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
Non-invasive, endoscopic imaging by use of VIDEO CAPSULE ENDOSCOPES to perform examination of the gastrointestinal tract, especially the small bowel.
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
