Abstract

Flexible endoscopes are being employed for a variety of neurosurgical procedures. These instruments have drawbacks, especially in their ability to evaluate clotted blood. We have attempted to rethink the design of these instruments and have developed a malleable endoscopic suction instrument. This has proved to be helpful in a variety of intracranial and intraspinal procedures.
