Device for neurophysiological analysis in the field of neurosurgical endoscopy

Medical Devices | Medical Equipment

Introduction

The present invention relates to a device for neurophysiological analysis in the field of neurosurgical endoscopy and to an endoscopic assembly comprising the device and an endoscope. In particular, the device includes a sensitive element which is of the rigid or elastic type, is made using a monopolar or bipolar electrode, and can be inserted into a working channel of the endoscope, which is also of a rigid or elastic type respectively.

Technical Features

The patent is part of the field of intraoperative neurophysiology, a research sector in neurosurgery undergoing rapid diffusion and development because it allows, by recording and stimulating specific nervous structures of a patient, to guide the actions of a neurosurgeon by reducing the risks of functional damage and allows us to provide some important prognostic assessments. The patented technology allows us to innovate the methods with which to carry out intraoperative neurophysiological mapping and monitoring, allowing us to precisely localize the functional areas not only of the cerebral cortex, but also of the subcortical white matter, and to analyze neurological functions in real time during the surgery, minimizing the risk of neurological damage.

Possible Applications

  • Endoscopic procedures have proven to be among the best strategies for reaching deep regions of the brain and working on them through minimally invasive craniotomies
  • The main applications are in the surgery of the cerebral ventricles, which can be easily inspected using these technologies
  • Mapping and intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring aimed at precisely localizing the functional areas of the cerebral cortex

Advantages

  • Innovation in neurophysiological analysis in the field of neurosurgical endoscopy
  • Reduces the risk of functional damage and maximizes patient safety
  • Allows us to provide some important prognostic evaluations
  • Minimizes the invasiveness of the surgical intervention
