The surgeons used VBAS
in multiple different manners, depending on the depth, location and type of pathology being accessed.
Though the Fund was made possible through Brown's bequest, it was her wish that it be called the VBAS

has received outstanding reviews from surgeons in the United States where it continues to gain traction with hospitals and neurosurgeons.
This regulatory approval has significant implications for surgeons and patients who will be able to benefit from the VBAS
device in China as they have in the United States," says Dr.
While the study highlights several key advantages the VBAS
has over previous designs of tubular retractors such as: the clear plastic material prevents electrical transmission and allows for better visualization.
The study highlights several important advantages of the VBAS
versus traditional systems currently available, such as "its low profile," "tubular shape," and "transparent walls.
