루뻬 미세수술에 있어서 등산용 헤드램프의 활용
, ,
Loupes-assisted microsurgery often needs an operational head lamp for a better condition of light. This may cause serious neck fatigue due to the weight the operational head lamp, the limitation of the operator’s head movement from the hind cable, and some cost for purchasing and management of it. On the contrary, a mountain head lamp is very light, full of freedom in movement, applicable to all types of loupes, and relatively very cheap. In conclusion, a mountain head lame can be a cost-effective light source for Loupes-assisted microsurgery.
