The Endoscope

The endoscope used for endoscopic ear surgery is a rigid rod containing lenses, which transmit the image from the tip of the scope to the HD-camera and screen. This system allows the surgeon to look inside the middle ear. The advantages of the endoscope are:

-       High magnification providing detailed view of the anatomy and the disease

-       Wide-angle panoramic views

-       Excellent illumination of the middle ear

-       Possibility to look around the corner when using angled scopes

-       Operation through the external auditory canal avoiding scars

-       Minimal-invasive surgery: preservation of healthy bone and tissue
