When working from the external perspective of a surgical microscope, the visualization of the anatomy is limited to a straight line of sight – potentially missing critical information behind tissue or corners. QEVO, the unique, proprietary Micro-Inspection Tool complements intraoperative microsurgical visualization, enabling neurosurgeons to discover unexplored areas during the surgical intervention without additional footprint in the OR. QEVO now allows surgeons to look around corners and eliminate blind spots, therefore providing them with greater insights – for better clinical decisions.
"I can anticipate the QEVO will be extremely useful in aneurysm surgery after clipping an aneurysm to be able to look around the corners to be sure that small perforating arteries aren’t included in the clip, the parent vessel isn’t compromised," explains Professor Daniel L. Barrow, MD, Chairman and Professor, Emory University, Department of Neurosurgery, Emory University Hospital, Atlanta, Georgia, USA. He adds: "I think in removing skull base tumors to be able to look around corners to see important neurovascular structures that may not be able to be visualized looking directly on it, will be a huge advantage."
