NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Visionsense Corp announces an unique milestone this week when the 3D camera was used in its 500th neurosurgical procedure with the VSii system.
Dr. Nelson M. Oyesiku (Al Lerner Chair and Vice-Chairman, Dept of Neurosurgery at Emory University and Professor of Neurosurgery and Medicine (Endocrinology)) performed a transsphenoidal resection of a pituitary adenoma in the morning of September 22nd, 2011 triggering this milestone accomplishment in the use of the 3D camera in transsphenoidal surgery.
Dr. Oyesiku commented, "The Visionsense system takes the best features of a 2D endoscope and a 3D surgical microscope and melds them into one instrument. The reason why 3 dimensional vision (stereopsis) is very important is, it provides an accurate rendition of the surgical field without image distortion, which is critical when operating around and within critical structures in the brain."
Alex Chanin, the CEO of Visionsense, stated that "Visionsense celebrated this important milestone on the road of 3D soon becoming the standard of care in visualization in the operating room."
