Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Digital video recordings are increasingly used across various medical and surgical disciplines with advances in computer hardware and software technologies. The creation of high-quality surgical video footage requires a basic understanding of key technical considerations, together with creativity and sound aesthetic judgment. Online operative videos have become a core resource within neurosurgical education.

OBJECTIVE:

To provide a step-by-step description for making operative videos using a video from a real case as an example.

METHODS:

We recorded an operative video of the microsurgical resection of a right lateral ventricle subependymoma performed by an anterior interhemispheric transcallosal approach. The patient consented to surgical resection of the subependymoma and to publication of this operative video. With the video, we explain the step-by-step process the authors used for developing the raw video into a publishable surgical video.

RESULTS:

The patient depicted in our video tolerated the surgery well and made a complete recovery. The final video produced from the surgery illustrated elements that Operative NeurosurgeryNeurosurgery, and other journals require in surgical videos.

CONCLUSION:

Although more than 1200 peer-reviewed (PubMed) neurosurgical operative videos have been published so far, there has not been a single publication that describes the step-by-step process of producing an operative video. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first published detailed description of editing of an educational operative video in neurosurgery and the first video case report of a microsurgical resection of subependymoma of the lateral ventricle in the peer-reviewed English literature.
