Welcome to the Event Room for the AOSpine Webinar—"Over-the-top” MISS decompression: Endoscope vs Microscope
Moderators: Roger Härtl and Richard Assaker
Presenters: Christoph Hofstetter and Muhammed Assous
Description: One of the key competencies in MISS is the ability to perform a bilateral spinal decompression via a unilateral approach, named “unilateral laminotomy for bilateral decompression” (ULBD). This can be achieved successfully using microscopic tubular/specular or endoscopic approaches. The pathologies that can be successfully addressed include lumbar stenosis with and without spondylolisthesis, lateral recess stenosis, synovial cysts, extra- and intradural tumors as well as central and foraminal disc herniations.This first of a series of three webinars will go through the indications, techniques and possible complications of ULBD procedures, as well as the pros and cons of microscopic vs. endoscopic techniques.
Surgeons doing open surgery but with little or no MISS experience
Surgeons of any level without any experience with endoscope
The event starts on April 23 at 15:00 Central European Time.
