First resection of a craniopharyngioma with ROSA®

The technology of handling advanced haptic device has ensured a precise positioning and manipulation of the endoscope.

The use of the device has improved ergonomics and precision of gesture by freeing the operating surgeon's hands, allowing him to receive perfectly stable images, and to work around critical structures such as the optic nerve.

The added value of the ROSA® device has proved particularly relevant for this type of neurosurgery involving complex skull-based procedures.
