History of Neuroendoscopy
Keywords:Endoscopy, neuroendoscopy, history
After two hundred years of design, endoscopy is widely used today in neurosurgical interventions for intraventricular surgery, skull base surgery, spinal surgery and various other applications. Neuroendoscope, which had fallen off the agenda in the early 1900s due to unsuccessful surgical interventions, was re-used to assist microsurgery in the future. It has become an indispensable equipment of the neurosurgery operating room itself, rather than the complementary feature of the neuroendoscopy, which has increased effectiveness in the development of technology. In this article, our aim is to tell the history of neuroendoscopy used in current neurosurgical field to physicians.
