Accurate placement of screws in spinal surgery is vital to mitigate risks like instability, nerve damage, or spinal cord injury, which can lead to various complications such as pain, sensory loss, muscle weakness, or paralysis below the injury site [33]. However, success rates in screw placement vary widely, ranging from 27.6% to 100% [56].<br/>...

Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) can provide tissue feedback for pedicle screw placement in spine surgery, yet the integration of fiber optics into the tip of the pedicle probe, a device used to pierce through bone, is challenging, since the optical probing depth and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) are affected negatively compared to those of...

Background: In brain tumor surgery, maximal tumor resection is typically desired. This is complicated by infiltrative tumor cells which cannot be visually distinguished from healthy brain tissue. Optical methods are an emerging field that can potentially revolutionize brain tumor surgery through intraoperative differentiation between healthy...

Our research highlights the potential of Diffuse Reflectance Spectroscopy (DRS) in detecting cortical breaches during pedicle screw placement. We propose a sideways-looking fiber-optic probe, integrating diffuse light emission with both forward and sideways light collection. Experiments on an optical tissue phantom validate the probe’s...

Spinal fusion is a surgical treatment involving stiffening parts of the spinal column to eliminate any relative motion and improve spine stability. A critical part of spinal fusion surgery is the placement of pedicle screws because it is highly complex and can damage the vascular structures and nerves near the vertebrae. To prevent complications...

Introduction: Although being the most advanced spinal stabilization method, pedicle screw fixation has an increased number of complications compared to other surgical procedures, due to the complex spinal anatomy, large inter-patient anatomical variability, and the highly vulnerable surrounding tissue of the spine. Screw fixation strength can be...

The intraoperative guidance and placement of spinal screws is a complex procedure. High technical expertise is required fromthe surgeons in order to achieve adequate fixation and ensure patient safety by preventing vascular and neurological injuries. The conventional screw placement techniques face several challenges. Surgeons heavily rely on...

Distinguishing the diseased breast tissue from the healthy tissue is a sorely challenging task for the surgeons during breast conserving surgery (BCS) as both tissues own relatively similar visual and haptic characteristics. It has been shown that diffused reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) has the potential to be used as a real-time tumor margin...

Establishing adequate resection margins during colorectal cancer surgery is challenging. Currently, in up to 30% of the cases the tumor is not completely removed, which emphasizes the lack of a real-time tissue discrimination tool that can assess resection margins up to multiple millimeters in depth. Therefore, we propose to combine spectral...

van Drunen, F.H.J. (author)
Background Inter- and intra patient morphological differences and absence of visual feedback make the placement of pedicle screws technically very demanding. As the spine is surrounded by neurovascular tissue, complications can have severe consequences, including paralysis. Guidance techniques are often very expensive and can overexpose surgeons...

Introduction. In spinal surgery, the misplacement of spinal screws is a problem that causes (severe) pain, bleedings or even paralysis [2]. Screw misplacements are common as navigating in the spine is difficult due to the small vertebral dimensions and a lack of anatomical landmarks [3] [4]. In order to improve the navigational support of spine...

BACKGROUND: The safe and accurate placement of pedicle screws remains a critical step in open and minimally invasive spine surgery, emphasizing the need for intraoperative guidance techniques. Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) is an optical sensing technology that may provide intraoperative guidance in pedicle screw placement. PURPOSE:...

In neurosurgery, technical solutions for visualizing the border between healthy brain and tumor tissue is of great value, since they enable the surgeon to achieve gross total resection while minimizing the risk of damage to eloquent areas. By using real-time non-ionizing imaging techniques, such as hyperspectral imaging (HSI), the spectral...

Brain tumors account for approximately just 2% of all cancers worldwide, but have a noticeable impact on cancer morbidity and mortality. Removal of brain tumors poses a big challenge for neurosurgeons, pediatricians and neuro-oncologists. An important aspect of this challenge is to adequately differentiate between tumor tissue and healthy brain...

During use of the smart electrosurgical knife, deterioration of the diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) signal intensity obstructs proper distinction between tissues. In order to reduce signal loss, this research has focused on the influence of smart electrosurgery on both the morphology and composition of the layer covering the optical fiber...

In vivo data acquisition using fiberoptic diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) is more complicated and less controlled compared to ex vivo data acquisition. It would be of great benefit if classifiers for in vivo tissue discrimination based on DRS could be trained on data obtained ex vivo. In this study, in vivo and ex vivo DRS measurements...

Background: In colorectal cancer surgery there is a delicate balance between complete removal of the tumor and sparing as much healthy tissue as possible. Especially in rectal cancer, intraoperative tissue recognition could be of great benefit in preventing positive resection margins and sparing as much healthy tissue as possible. To better...

Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) can discriminate different tissue types based on optical characteristics. Since this technology has the ability to detect tumor tissue, several groups have proposed to use DRS for margin assessment during breast-conserving surgery for breast cancer. Nowadays, an increasing number of patients with breast...

Among women, breast cancer has the highest incidence rate of all types of cancer worldwide. For 80% of these patients, a treatment option is the surgical procedure known as breast conserving surgery (BCS). Re-excision is required in 10-60% of these patients, as positive margins are encountered post-operatively, showing the need of an intra...
