Delashaw Jr, MD Binocular Operating Microscope: Operative Department of Neurosurgery Video Swedish Neuroscience Institute Seattle, Washington To the Editor: Department of Neurosurgery We would like to acknowledge Dr Kassam’s letter and the Loma Linda University Medical Center recent related work in the application of robotic optical arms as Loma Linda, California an alternative microvisualization device in lieu of the traditional microsurgical operating microscope in the microsurgical clipping of intracranial aneurysms. Our original article did not reference their team’s abstract, which was not discovered during a liter- REFERENCES ature review of the topic prior to submission for publication. We would argue that this was an understandable oversight as the 1. Chakravarthi S, Rovin R, Kassam M. Letter: microsurgical clipping of an anterior communicating artery aneurysm using a novel robotic visualization tool in lieu referenced abstract did not appear in the medical literature until of the binocular operating microscope: operative video. Oper Neurosurg. 2018. August 2016, the same month our manuscript was submitted for doi: 10.1093/ons/opy076 [Published online ahead of Print] publication. We congratulate Dr Kassam and his colleagues on 2. Klinger DR, Reinard KA, Ajayi OO, Delashaw JB.
