Brainlab neuronavigation combines ease of use with extended functionality tailored to surgeons’ needs
With digital patient data uploaded to the Brainlab Cranial neuronavigation application in the O.R., surgeons can identify their approach before making an incision. Brainlab neuronavigation tracks tools¹ in real time and displays their position in relation to the patient data. Surgeons are guided through procedures, helping to keep skull openings small and minimize damage to healthy structures.
Regardless of patient positioning, Brainlab neuronavigation offers multiple techniques for referencing patients to the system. Z-touch® and Softouch® are based on surface matching, making patient registration quick and easy by simply touching the patients’ skin with either a pointer or a laser. As both devices register CT and MR images without headsets or markers, registration scans can be avoided, helping to reduce neuronavigation costs.
Surgeons can target pre-planned trajectories in less than a minute with VarioGuide™. As universal instrument holder, VarioGuide offers continuous position feedback and precise step-by-step workflow guidance, for a variety of procedures. Surgeons are able to take biopsies, place shunts or guide an endoscope with increased confidence through proven passive-marker technology.
The Brainlab Disposable Stylet is designed for navigated placements of shunts or ventricular catheters in neurosurgery enabling their quick and easy freehand placement. The incorporated passive marker geometry is automatically recognized by the Brainlab navigation camera allowing for an instant calibration.
