BACKGROUND This study examines the feasibility of a navigation-controlled (NC) drill for surgery on the petrosal bone in an experimental environment. According to the principle of NC, the drill is to be switched off automatically once the borders of the workspace are exceeded during a mastoidectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS The registration is based on an optical navigation system with navigation software (MiMed). As surgery engine, the Unidrive-system (Karl Storz GmbH & CO.
