Brainlab Trauma Navigation covers all main trauma indications, enabling first pass accuracy and reduced X-Ray exposure
Brainlab Trauma Navigation addresses the demand for simple intraoperative visualization, planning, and targeting. Continuous tracking of surgical instruments and implants relative to any pre- and intraoperatively acquired 2D and 3D images makes it a straightforward and reliable method to help ensure first pass accuracy¹ and potentially lower O.R. time.
Brainlab Trauma Navigation enables reduction of X-Ray exposure to the surgical team and the patient.¹ Through real time visualization of instrument entry points, trajectories and fracture reductions can be planned and targeted on 2D and 3D images. The need for constant verification by acquiring numerous fluoroscopic images is diminished.
Fracture treatment requires immediate and accurate action. Therefore, intraoperative registration of 2D C-arm images is a crucial step in Trauma Navigation. With the handheld, autoclavable device xSpot fluoroscopic image registration becomes easier than ever. Reliable and accurate image data is ready for navigation within seconds.
In Trauma surgery, 3D C-arm imaging lends itself especially to difficult clinical cases. With Brainlab Trauma Navigation minimally-invasive, intraoperative automatic registration of 3D C-arm scans is a fast and easy process with Fluoro 3D. After automatic image registration, navigation can begin.
Brainlab has adapted the scope of Trauma Navigation to meet the challenges trauma surgeons face in their daily practice. Brainlab Trauma Navigation covers all major Trauma indications. For implant navigation in long bone fractures, navigation delivers information to support accurate first pass targeting and fracture reduction and to control axis, length and rotation, also compared to the non-fractured side. For articular fractures, the software guides the surgeon to remain inside the bone and to protect nearby joints.
The integration of dedicated implants into Trauma Navigation helps to extend the potential of many less invasive implant lines. Targeting entry points on the smallest access paths or placing interlocked plates while virtually verifying implant and fragment positions is just a click away. The open platform principle of Brainlab Trauma Navigation enables almost any instrument to be manually calibrated for navigation by attaching universal adapter clamps.
