Novel self-expanding stent retractors for neuroendoscopy

Abstract:

This thesis reports on the development of a novel self-expanding stent retractor (SESR), one that could replace the rigid tubular retractors in common use for minimally invasive neuroendoscopy. The thesis begins with a comprehensive literature review, focusing on existing neuroendoscopy techniques and devices that treat deep brain lesions.
