Advances provided by a surgical navigation system

Today’s technological advances have made it possible to have in the operating rooms a series of equipment that allow to carry out the procedures in a much more effective and safe way, among them we find the surgical navigation systems, medical equipment that allows to visualize the anatomy of the patient during a surgical procedure and to carry out precise tracking of the location of the instruments used in surgery.

These medical devices, when used in surgical procedures performed by surgeons, provide greater precision, make the procedures less invasive and help achieve better results. Allowing to plan and execute precisely this process, that is, to guide surgical instruments such as electroscalpel.

What are the advances that a Surgical Navigation System brings?

Among the main advances of a surgical navigation system in operating rooms are:

  • Handling 4K images that allow surgeons to see in a defined way inside the patient and perform the surgery more accurately.
  • 3D imaging that helps improve the visibility of the patient’s anatomy and increases surgical efficiency and accuracy in techniques such as laparoscopic surgeries with shorter surgical times.
  • Virtual and augmented reality is used to train surgeons and physicians, and help them acquire competence in complicated technologies faster.
  • These browsers also help establish a true diagnosis while the patient is still on the operating table, guiding surgery and supporting further treatment.
  • Not only do they make it easier for surgeons to work, but they also make it possible to provide better patient care. This is because they allow surgical interventions with the least risk and less invasive. In other words, they offer greater flexibility and help reduce complexity, simplify workflows, and increase efficiency and productivity.

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.  Among the main benefits of using surgical navigation systems are:

  • Lower complications in the surgical wound. Wounds heal faster and rarely present major complications.
  • Reduction of postoperative pain and reduction of trauma in healthy tissues.
  • Reduced risk of sequelae
  • Decrease of postoperative and stay in the hospital. As a result, associated costs are significantly reduced.
  • Its use produces smaller incisions and much more aesthetic.

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.
