Newly reported from the USA: Exoscope Tied to Better Outcomes in Spinal Neurosurgery

Use of an exoscope for spinal neurosurgery is associated with superior intraoperative outcomes versus use of the operative microscope, according to a study published online Dec. 5 in World Neurosurgery.

Noah L.A. Nawabi, from the College of Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, and colleagues compared intraoperative outcomes for exoscope-assisted spine surgery versus similar procedures performed using the operative microscope. The analysis included 123 exoscope spinal surgeries performed on 116 unique patients and 126 surgeries on 120 unique patients using the microscope.
