Abstract BACKGROUND. The rigid endoscope developed by Karl Storz in 1961 led to a great advance in diagnosis and surgery and nowadays it is the gold standard in routine ENT practice. In addition, the development of video cameras has enhanced the surgical abilities as well as teaching opportunities in endoscopic sinus surgery. OBJECTIVE. We developed a new prototype endoscope using the “chip-on-the-tip” technology. The aim of our non-clinical study was to observe and discuss the experimental… Expand

Video-Endoscope versus Endoscope for Paranasal Sinus Surgery: Influence on Stereoacuity
The fact that the use of a video-endoscope did not increase the number of faults in the experiment does not support the notion that performing endoscopic sinus surgery using a monitor is unsafe, however, in the hands of the participants who were experienced with the endoscope theUse of aVideo-endoscopy slowed down manipulations to a significant degree.

Clinical Experience With a New Type of Rhino-Larynx Electronic Endoscope PENTAX VNL-1530
Recording of pictures obtained from patients with diseases of the larynx by using a new type of rhino-larynx electronic endoscope, PENTAXVNL-1530 connected to a video processor, which is superior to that obtained by a flexible laryngofiberscope in resolution of the detail. Expand
Three-dimensional endoscopic visualization in functional endoscopic sinus surgery
3D HD endoscopy provides an improvement in SDP and brightness of the surgical field and enhances the intraoperative visualization and is therefore an important and efficient development in endoscopic sinus surgery. Expand

Video-Endoscope versus Endoscope for Paranasal Sinus Surgery: Influence on Visual Acuity and Color Discrimination
Sharpness and contrast of the video-image are significantly enhanced by the 3-CCC plus digital image processing, compared to the 1-CCC; color discrimination, however, was not impaired by the1-CCC, indicating that color perception with thevideo-endoscope can be very good and may not contribute significantly to the loss of image quality.

Flexible laryngoscopy: a comparison of fiber optic and distal chip technologies-part 2: laryngopharyngeal reflux.
Data suggest that a high-quality FO endoscope may be more accurate than a DC endoscope for most otolaryngologists and recommend that a rigid laryngeal telescope be used when examining the larynx for signs of LPR. Expand
