• endoscopic
  • The present invention relates to apparatus for use in association with endoscopic medical video equipment. (google.com)
  • The first departure from traditional surgical methods occurred in approximately the mid-1970s, when Nezhat began experimenting in the lab with "operating off the monitor," a phrase that refers to the method of performing endoscopic surgery (referred to as a laparoscope when used for abdominal surgeries) while viewing a TV/video monitor in an upright position, operating off the video images, instead of looking directly at the patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • Surgery
  • Nezhat is best known for the surgical innovation referred to as video-laparoscopy or "operating off the monitor," a method now widely accepted but which was, until recently, considered a controversial and questionable departure from classical laparotomy or open surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mainstream medical community has acknowledged operating off the monitor in video-laparoscopy to be the gold standard in various disciplines, such as gynecologic, gastrointestinal, thoracic, vascular, urological, and general surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • report
  • This fell out of general use, in most countries most probably because culdoscopy could not offer any advantages over laparoscopy Campo, Broesens, Gordts and Watrelot were among the first to propose and report on the development of a standardised procedure of "transvaginal hydrolaparoscopy" and a special instrument for it - initially a modified reusable laparoscope. (wikipedia.org)
  • Size
  • The rod-lens based laparoscopes dominate overwhelmingly in practice, due to their fine optical resolution (50 µm typically, dependant on the aperture size used in the objective lens), and the image quality can be better than that of the digital camera if necessary. (wikipedia.org)
  • medical
  • However, by approximately the mid-1990s it can be established that most of the initial misgivings about video-laparoscopy had subsided because by then the nation's most prominent academic medical schools in the U.S., such as Stanford University School of Medicine, had adopted this change and began teaching it as part of the standard medical school curriculum. (wikipedia.org)
  • By the early 2000s, many medical societies, such as American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists, Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, and SAGES, also began offering fellowships in advanced operative video-laparoscopy. (wikipedia.org)
  • He has introduced the use of laparoscopes and robots into first-year anatomy education, and collaborated with medical students to teach musculoskeletal anatomy through yoga and Pilates, the latter innovation having received national awards and recognitions. (wikipedia.org)
