Spinal endoscopy procedure is commonly used in the diagnosis and treatment of various health problems and is effective. Bleeding is one of the most common complications of spinal endoscopy procedures. Blood vision obstruction (BVO), that is, obstruction of the endoscopic camera lens caused by the accumulation of blood in the surgical field, is a serious problem in endoscopic procedures. This study presents what we believe to be a new approach to addressing BVO with external multispectral imaging. The study was completed using a BVO simulation model, and the results reveal that this technology can be used to effectively overcome BVO and provide clear images of the anatomy, enabling more effective diagnosis and treatment. This technique may enable improvement of the outcomes of endoscopic procedures and could have far-reaching implications in the field of endoscopy.
