StealthStation S8 Surgical Navigation System 

Neurosurgery and Spine Procedures

Overview

The StealthStation™ S8 surgical navigation system enables you to precisely track the location of surgical instruments throughout a procedure. The StealthStation™ S8 system introduces the most advanced version of Stealth technology — a combination of hardware, software, tracking algorithms, image data merging, and specialized instruments to help guide you during surgical procedures. 


INDICATIONS

The StealthStation™ System is intended as an aid for precisely locating anatomical structures in either open or percutaneous procedures. The StealthStation™ System is indicated for any medical condition in which the use of stereotactic surgery may be appropriate, and where reference to a rigid anatomical structure, such as the skull, a long bone, or vertebra, can be identified relative to a CT or MR based model, fluoroscopy images, or digitized landmarks of the anatomy.


PRODUCT DETAILS

The StealthStation™ surgical navigation system offers both optical and EM tracking capabilities, integration with external devices like microscopes and ultrasound, a broad array of instrument offerings, and core software applications for neurosurgery and spine procedures including:

  • Biopsy
  • Tumor resection
  • Catheter placement
  • Deep brain stimulation lead placement
  • Spine decompression or fusion (including, but not limited to ACDF, ALIF PLIF, TLIF, cortical screw placement)
  • Spinal or pelvic fixation (including, but not limited to, SI fixation, placement of occipital pedicle, cortical, facet screws, fixation for scoliosis, kyphosis, or other deformity)
  • Treatment for spinal or sacral trauma (including, but not limited to, vertebroplasty, sacroplasty)

SYSTEM ADVANCEMENTS

  • Intuitive user interface with two touchscreen monitors, which support multitouch gestures like pinch-and-zoom and drag-and-drop
  • Better visualization with easier manipulation of 2-D and 3-D views and intuitive layering and blending tools
  • Patient registration with more versatility, such as using both touch and trace techniques within the same registration process
  • Model building tools to get more out of the data and improve your planning process
  • Single or dual cart configurations for greater flexibility

CAPABILITIES

  • Interfaces with intraoperative imaging systems, including iMRI, iCT, C-arms, and the O-arm™ surgical imaging system, to orient surgeons with 3-D images of the patient’s anatomy
  • Tracks surgical instruments in real time, based on preoperative and intraoperative images
  • Relays movements of instrumentation relative to patient anatomy via optical or electromagnetic navigation options
  • Helps guide your planning and approach prior to and during surgery, allowing you to create, store, and simulate progression along one or more surgical trajectories
  • Integrates with external devices like endoscopes and microscopes, streamlining visualization workflows

SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES
