  • The Future of Fluorescence in Vascular Neurosurgery

    In vascular neurosurgery, surgical microscopes are used to provide a magnified and illuminated view of the surgical field. Although surgeons benefit greatly from the superb image quality and optical magnification offered by the microscope, current limitations of the microscope mean that surgeons have to rely on their color acuity to differentiate between different tissue types.

  • Making the Finest Blood Vessels Visible

    Cerebrovascular disease, which can be triggered or result from a ruptured aneurysm, is the third most common cause of death in industrial countries and the main cause of severe long-term disability and the need for lifelong care. Dr. Joaquim Enseñat, neurosurgeon at the Clinic de Barcelona Hospital in Spain, has used the technique of intraoperative video-angiography with the Leica FL800 fluorescence module to treat cerebral aneurysms since 2008.

  • Fluorescence-guided Resection of Malignant Glioma – Only Red-fluorescing Areas Excised

    For resection of brain tumours in particular, neurosurgeons are faced with the same dilemma time and again: how to remove the tumour completely without ­destroying neurological functions. Nowadays, surgeons harness the possibilities of intraoperative fluorescence technology for exact and full excision of tumour tissue so that the patient’s quality of life can be saved or even enhanced.
