Fusion ENT Navigation
We redefined electromagnetic (EM) image-guided surgery with the Fusion™ ENT Navigation System: an innovative EM system that offers reliable accuracy, ease of use, and expandability.
Fusion System for Image-Guided Surgery
Whether it's for FESS or skull base procedures, image-guided surgery with the Fusion™ ENT Navigation System can help surgeons make more informed decisions in the OR. Image-guided surgery provides the maximum amount of information about each patient's unique anatomy for safer, more thorough procedures. Features include:
- Superior, Reliable Accuracy. Fusion is the first EM navigation device to offer reproducible accuracy comparable to optical image-guided surgery systems.
- Convenient and Easy to Use. It includes automated registration/verification, reusable instruments, multi-instrument tracking, and surgeon-specific settings.
- Expandable as Needed. Optional hardware, software, and accessories are available to help customize your image-guided surgery system for your practice.
- Innovative, Reusable Instruments. Our Standard Instrument Set provides the same look and feel as standard ENT instruments, while the optional Supplemental Instrument Set offers unique designs that enable better visibility and ease of use.
Integrated Surgical Technologies
We offer integrated surgical technologies that help streamline your OR, such as the Straightshot® M4 Automated Tracking Blades that are factory-calibrated for Fusion navigation. And if you're performing combined transnasal skull base surgery, the Fusion System, Anterior Skull Base Burs, and MicroFrance® Wormald Instruments help maximize visualization and access.
Comprehensive Service and Support
We want you to get the most out of your Fusion System. That's why we include one year of our comprehensive Advance Service and Support Program with every purchase of the Fusion System for image-guided surgery. Learn more.

Why Image-Guided Surgery Is Needed
Disease, previous surgery, and normal anatomical variations can make it a challenge to perform the safest and most effective endoscopic sinus surgery, even with a detailed knowledge of anatomy and surgical skill. Avoiding orbital injuries, entry into the brain, and the carotid artery are paramount.
Similar to a global positioning system, our Fusion™ image-guided surgery system provides real-time images that can help you navigate in the sinuses for precise removal of diseased tissue while avoiding critical areas.
Image-guided surgery has become an industry standard for many endoscopic sinus surgeries. The American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery (AAO-HNS) endorses the use of image-guided surgery for procedures including:1
- Revision sinus surgery
- Distorted sinus anatomy of development, postoperative, or traumatic origin
- Extensive sino-nasal polyposis
- Pathology involving the frontal, posterior ethmoid and sphenoid sinuses
- Disease abutting the skull base, orbit, optic nerve, or carotid artery
- CSF rhinorrhea or conditions where there is a skull base defect
- Benign and malignant sino-nasal neoplasms
Whether you're performing functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) or complex skull base procedures, our Fusion image-guided surgery system provides valuable information that can help enable a safer, more thorough procedure.
