RUDN University won the first place at the 47th International Exhibition of Inventions INVENTIONS GENEVA in Geneva (Switzerland), presenting a neurosurgical stereo-endoscope - a device for endoscopic minimally invasive operations. The invention of Russian scientists also won the Special Prize of the International Strategic Technology Alliance ISTA.

Alexey Shkarubo, professor at the Department of Nervous Diseases and Neurosurgery at the Medical Institute of RUDN University, presented the invention for the first time at an exhibition in Geneva. Neurosurgical Stereo-Endoscope is a device for performing closed surgeries with minimal intervention into the body. The design feature of the device is a small outer diameter - only 4 mm. The invention provides for obtaining stereo images of objects, which allow to improve the quality of surgical care by improving the image quality and minimizing trauma. The exhibit can also be used to build neurosurgical stereo-endoscopes. Alexey Shkarubo, Naum Pinkhasik, Vladimir Semenov, Alexander Baygeldinov and Vasily Myrza worked on the project. Participants and visitors could familiarize themselves with the prototype of the invention.
