"The Institutional Review Board did not complain when Harvey Cushing, after a bloody initial foray, successfully reserected a hypervascular parietal tumor using William T. Bovie's new electrodesiccator. When Reuben Setliff showed a short lunchtime video of a nasal polyp removal with an orthopedic microdebrider, a crowd of excited otolaryngologists poured from the lobby into the lecture hall to see something really new and better."

"A little history will help here. In 1993, I saw the first demonstration of the use of a microdebrider for endoscopic sinus surgery by Dr. Reuben Setliff, who had conceived the technique. He used an instrument that had been developed for temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthroscopic surgery. The device had failed as a treatment for TMJ pain, but was revolutionary for sinus surgery and its use rapidly spread; it didn't take randomized controlled studies to convince most of us of this new tool's utility.
