Since Nylen first used an operating microscope in 1921, its basic design has remained fundamentally unchanged. Microsurgical procedures are still performed while viewing the subject through binocular eyepieces. This article examines the potential to perform microsurgery using video technology, operating with a television monitor. The development of the videomicroscope is discussed together with its early trials. The results show the potential to perform simple microsurgical procedures while viewing the procedure in a two-dimensional format. The advantages and disadvantages of such a system are discussed, together with future implications.
