Paper Abstract

The greatest advancements in the past three decades in surgery were the development of precision surgical and endosccpic techniques. The introduction of binocular magnification with improved lighting in ear surgery contributed mainly to improve precision techniques in surgery. An order of magnitude improvement in precision was achieved using magnification and delicate instruments. Similarly, endoscopic instrumentation, rigid and flexible, made previously unaccessible areas accessible without major surgical intervention.
