Recently Dr. Christian Morgenstern PhD developed instruments to perform a full endoscopic ACDF and we would like to share his opinion.
“I believe that the evolution of surgery is inexorable with every technical advance and this is what makes spine surgery so exciting. Particularly, endoscopic spine surgery has seen great advances in the last years with ever more expanding indications.”
“We have developed new instruments to perform a full endoscopic/percutaneous ACDF through a 1.5 – 1.8 cm skin incision without soft tissue dissection.
This 49-years old lady with a cranially migrated herniation at C4/C5 and C5/C6 underwent a two-level full-endoscopic ACDF.”
“By placing two cages through a single 1.7mm skin incision and without any kind of soft tissue dissection, we were able to discharge her from the hospital 18 hours after surgery. We appreciate the support of our partner MaxMoreSpine.”
We would like to share a few pictures as well:
