Spinal Cord Stimulation Implantation: Percutaneous Implantation Techniques

Spinal wire stimulators (SCS) are implantable scientific units used to regard continual discomfort of neurologic beginning, corresponding to sciatica, intractable again soreness, and diabetic. The gadget generates an electrical pulse close to the spinal cord's dorsal floor, supplying a parasthesia sensation that alters the belief of discomfort through the sufferer, and is usually utilized in conjunction with traditional clinical administration.

The cart is particularly useful in settings where multiple procedures are performed daily. • This not only saves time and staffing expenses but also reduces the risk of faulty equipment connections with repeated takedowns and setups. • Endoscopy cart contents (Figs. 33) — Video monitor — Light source — Control unit for the camera and digital image processor — Control unit for the radiofrequency system — Drive unit and control unit for the motorized instruments — Documentation units (videocasette recorder, video printer, digital still image recorder) • The monitor should always be placed at the surgeon’s eye level.

Its major advantage is excellent hemostatic ability, which greatly improves endoscopic visibility. Lasers for Endoscopic Spine Surgery Erbium:YAG laser The ability of the laser to be transmitted through flexible optic fibers can be regarded as a mandatory requirement for an efficient endoscopic surgical procedure. Therefore CO2 lasers, even though they have excellent ablative properties with minimal scattering, cannot be used through an endoscope. The lasers available for use in endoscopic surgery are the erbium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Er:YAG), neodymium:yttrium-aluminumgarnet (Nd:YAG), holmium:yttrium-aluminum-garnet (Ho:YAG), and potassium titanyl-phosphate (KTP) lasers (Fig.

CCDs are silicon optical chips capable of converting optical data into electrical current for more reliable, accurate, and high-resolution transmission of digital color images. — Generally, two types are available: one-chip cameras and three-chip cameras. — Three-chip cameras provide the greatest resolution and light sensitivity; however, they are also the most expensive. — The cameras are relatively simple to use and are connected to the endoscope with a locking attachment. — This integration has also dramatically reduced the size and weight of the cameras which then become easier to handle during surgery.
