Episode 1: Informed patient consent and other pressing ethical issues in robot-assisted neurointervention


In the first instalment of a four-part video series on NeuroNews, Jeffrey Saver (University of California, Los Angeles [UCLA] Medical Center, Los Angeles, USA) introduces the topic of robotics in neurointerventional surgery and outlines the ethical implications such technologies have in this space. He also details one of the most critical components of this complex new frontier—the issue of informed patient consent, and how neurointerventionists can navigate this potentially difficult domain.

This video is part of a series in which Jeffrey Saver speaks to NeuroNews to discuss several key ethical considerations that the global neurointerventional community must reckon with as interest in robot-assisted procedures and remote care continues to grow.
