Abstract

We present the first results from comparative investigations of conventional neuroendoscopy and robot-assisted neuroendoscopy. In a simulated clinical setting, the endoscopic evacuation of an in vitro intracerebral hematoma model was performed by a single surgeon. For seven specimens, evacuation was guided using hand-held endoscopy alone; for another group of seven specimens, evacuation was guided using robot-assisted endoscopy. The results suggest that, at the expense of a slightly greater procedure time, robotic assistance improves the safety of target volume resection by augmenting the surgeon's comfort and dexterity.
