Video-optic cable endoscopy forceps


Weiss, M; Holzmann, D; Gerber, A C (2003). Video-optic cable endoscopy forceps. International Journal of Pediatric Otorhinolaryngology, 67(3):243-246.

Abstract

We present a video-endoscopic technology for foreign body extractions with forceps. This can easily be followed and is recordable on video monitor in excellent quality. Instead of a rigid rod lens telescope, a fiberoptic video endoscope is inserted into the optical channel of a bronchoscopic forceps. This keeps the endoscopic device lightweight and easily maneuverable in different angles. The principle can be applied to other rigid diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic equipment and represents a potential alternative technology to the use of cameras attached to rigid telescopes.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
