Abstract

To increase the versatility of a ceiling-mounted microsurgical unit, we instructed an instrument company to redesign an existant unit according to our requirements. The modified instrument has improved microscope supporting arms capable of supporting an inserted X-Y traanslation stage. The unit houses diathermy, cautery, fiberoptic light source, and suction devices. Most of these devices can be exchanged for others to adapt to individual requirements. Mirror image design increases versatility. Floor-mounted outlets avoid a multitude of cables. A double color television system for automatic recording of surgery has been installed.
