What are the advantages of optical surgical navigation systems?

Through the use of surgical optical navigation systems, allows the development of surgeries through augmented real technological simulation, which is characterized by sensory perception, adding visual content as guides to help make them less invasive and show the role of staff as a comparative advantage over virtual reality.

For some years now, this type of virtual tool has been successfully implemented to make incisions through the optical surgical navigation system manipulated by the surgeon, allowing the smaller number of openings and insertion, leading to the reduction of postoperative and hospitalization risks and reduction of surgical complications for the patient.

Benefits of Optical Surgical Navigation Systems

The guided surgeries symbolize a set of elements aimed at real-time interventions, assisted by navigation systems, allowing surgeons to simulate, educate and plan the interventions.

Guiding a pathway in a three-dimensional space using contrast-enhanced images by applying fluorescent markers or labels that allow navigation and orientation of the system between organs and nerves with real-time images is helpful.

It also covers operational actions, generally related to planning, allowing success percentages within procedures, which are translated into static or dynamic systems, defined as:

  • Based on templates for the surgery workflow.
  • Display the intervention area and position on a display interface or monitor, including real-time instrument position navigation.

Accordingly, the realization of surgeries based on the optical surgical navigation systems brings many important benefits for both the patient and surgeons as they develop less invasive and safer interventions.

Maintenance of Optical Surgical Browsers

The operational confidence offered by surgical optical navigation systems can be increased or maintained through preventive equipment maintenance, as when doing so, the medical staff operating it will be able to concentrate on the procedures and needs of the patient if any hurry arises.

On the other hand, most operating theaters that have navigation are not always ready, that is why maintenance is a complicated and necessary step, since they involve images that save time and improve the workflow and by doing so can create space for other interventions.

The components that develop a special paper, are milling and cutting tools, invasive surgical instruments, that work and fit optimally and that the surgeon receives the information about them through remote control options; that is, not only to show this on the real device, but on a central and visible screen that can be operated by the medical professional.

In the field of medical technology, surgical optical navigation systems focus on advances that support current interventions. In addition, they operate with conventional imaging techniques, whereby manufacturers develop replacement instruments that achieve integration into sensor structures.ย 

Kalstein Brand Optical Surgical Navigator

At Kalstein, we are equipped with high-quality technological equipment, with YR series models, the advanced optical tracking system tracks 3D position in real time and orientation of active or passive markers attached to surgical tools, to provide exceptional accuracy (1.0 mm spatial resolution) and reliability.

In addition, DICOM CT images captured with CT / C-arm / MRI / fMRI are applicable to the surgical navigation system YR02143 and the 3D simulation and modeling procedure of anatomical structures on material (such as skin, skull, brain tissue or target lesion) can be easily defined for surgical convenience, providing operators with four navigation modes for comprehensive monitoring of the navigation process, automatically saves all patient image data and registration information, to allow the surgeon to quickly charge and continue surgical navigation against unexpected power failure.

At Kalstein, we are manufacturers and we offer you the best equipment, with the best advice so that your purchase is the right one and at the best prices. Come, check out our pageย HEREย . For more information, check out our catalog on HERE
