Benefits of a Surgical Navigation System

Surgical navigation systems are modern medical equipment that allows visualizing the anatomy of the patient during a surgical procedure and accurately tracking the location of the instruments used in surgery. They reduce the traumatic risk and help in the surgical process.

These devices bring greater precision to surgical procedures, making them less invasive and help to achieve better results. Allowing the surgeon to precisely plan and execute this process, in other words, a surgical navigation system allows guiding surgical instruments.

How do these surgical navigation systems work?

Sophisticated surgical navigation systems employ a stereoscopic camera that emits infrared light that in turn enables the 3D position of prominent structures, such as reflective marker spheres, to be determined. This enables real-time tracking of marker spheres.

To configure these devices, you need a stereoscopic camera, a computer screen platform and the respective navigation software. During surgery, the marker spheres are fixed to the patient and the surgical instruments to allow an exact location in space and thus navigation in the operating room (OR).

What benefits does a surgical navigation system offer?

Surgical navigation systems are complex medical equipment that provide optical tracking capabilities as well as integration with external devices such as microscopes and ultrasounds. Its main function is to help accurately locate anatomical structures in open or percutaneous procedures.

Surgical navigation systems allow interventions with higher levels of complexity that require high precision and lower risk for the patient. In this way, navigation systems will continue to become an essential part of routine operations in the operating theaters of the future.ย  Among the main benefits of using surgical navigation systems are:

  • Reduction of complications at surgical wound level. Wounds heal faster and rarely present major complications.
  • Decreased systemic inflammatory response associated with the operation, and improved immune response.
  • Reduction of postoperative pain and less trauma of healthy tissues.
  • They lead to a lower risk of postoperative sequelae.
  • Decrease of postoperative and stay in the hospital. As a result, associated costs are significantly reduced.
  • Smaller and much more aesthetic incisions are generated.

What do we offer you in Kalstein?

Kalstein is a company MANUFACTURER of medical and laboratory equipment of the highest quality and that have the most advanced technology at the best prices in the market, so we guarantee you a safe and effective purchase, knowing that you have the service of a solid company and committed to health. In this opportunity we present our innovative YR02143 electromagnetic navigation system assisted by computer, which has the following features: HERE

  • It is widely used for surgical visualization, planning and navigation to help minimize iatrogenic trauma to surrounding brain tissue and reduce the risk of surgical complications in cranial procedures (such as cranial neurology and ENT surgery).
  • The advanced optical tracking system tracks real-time 3D position and orientation of active or passive markers attached to surgical tools, for exceptional accuracy (1.0 mm spatial resolution) and reliability.
  • The method of 3D simulation and modeling of anatomical structures in material (such as skin, skull, brain tissue or target injury) can be easily defined by surgical convenience.
  • With the navigation probe and advanced optical measurement technology built in, the surgeon can easily quantify the size and position of the lesions, then scientifically design the surgical approach.
  • The system provides operators with four navigation modes for comprehensive monitoring of the navigation process.
  • The intelligent software will help calibrate and compensate for unexpected changes in anatomical structure and brain change induced by removal of the intracranial lesion area.
  • The YR02143 navigation system can operate with a surgeon mouse or a touch monitor mounted on the mobile cart or on the ceiling hanger arm.
  • The system automatically stores all patient image data and log information to allow the surgeon to quickly charge and continue surgical navigation against the unexpected power outage.
  • It can be used for all neurological and ORL surgeries, especially in deep intracranial lesions, small intracranial volume lesions, small-edge intracranial lesions and minimally invasive surgeries.
