Abstract

Dissection of the small perforating vessels through the muscle/septum can be difficult, and microsurgical success is closely linked on a clear and well-magnified field vision. Since 2004, Varioscope M5 has been employed in our Plastic Surgery Departments. It is the first and only head-mounted microscope. In this study was examined 10 patients underwent to reconstructive procedures by harvest of perforator free flaps, working with Varioscope M5. At long-term follow-up, all patient present an exceptional outcome. Considering cost-effectiveness, portability, operator freedom, and effectiveness in the perforator flaps dissection and in the anastomosis making, we think that Varioscope M5 offers essential advantages Dissection of the small perforating vessels through the muscle/septum can be difficult, and microsurgical success is closely linked on a clear and well-magnified field vision. Since 2004, Varioscope M5 has been employed in our Plastic Surgery Departments. It is the first and only head-mounted microscope. In this study was examined 10 patients underwent to reconstructive procedures by harvest of perforator free flaps, working with Varioscope M5. At long-term follow-up, all patient present an exceptional outcome. Considering cost-effectiveness, portability, operator freedom, and effectiveness in the perforator flaps dissection and in the anastomosis making, we think that Varioscope M5 offers essential advantages.
