Spinal endoscopy can be selected for a number of reasons, including observing epidural anatomy and pathology, targeted epidural delivery of drugs and the illumination and visualization of tissues of the epidural space in the spine for assisting diagnosis. More commonly, however, spinal endoscopy is used as a minimally invasive approach to discectomies, laminectomies and foraminotomies.
General Report Contents– Market Analyses include: Unit Sales, ASPs, Market Value & Growth Trends– Market Drivers & Limiters for each chapter segment– Competitive Analysis for each chapter segment– Section on recent mergers & acquisitionsSpine endoscopes are visualization instruments that allow for a minimally invasive approach to various procedures and resemble other arthroscopic and laparoscopic devices. By allowing direct visualization into the spinal canal, these endoscopes facilitate the investigation of nerve compression, inflammation, scarring or abnormalities in the spinal space.Discectomies performed with endoscopes are often referred to as endoscopic discectomies. In such procedures, the affected vertebral disc is accessed via a small incision through which an access portal is set up. The portal provides room for the mechanical removal of disc material or removal by laser. Laminectomies and foraminotomies can also be performed endoscopically in a similar fashion. In recent years, technological advancements in digital imaging have led to the use of high definition (HD) cameras in conjunction with spine endoscopes. This is especially important in minimally invasive procedures since surgeons need to be able to manipulate instruments through ports made in the patients anatomy rather than having the entire area visible as in traditional open procedures.
