CRANIAL NEUROSURGERY NAVIGATION StealthStation Surgical Navigation System
The StealthStation™ surgical navigation system has an intuitive interface, improved patient registration software, and advanced visualization to navigate cranial neurosurgery procedures. The system offers optical and EM tracking capabilities, and integrates with external devices like microscopes, ultrasound, and a broad array of Medtronic instruments. Explore the capabilities, applications, and technology of this powerful surgical tool.
StealthStation Cranial Visualization
Quickly visualize anatomy and structures, with automatic blending of key information in 3-D models.
Touch-enabled interactions―similar to your smartphone or tablet―make the software easy to learn and easy to use.
StealthStation S8 Custom Preferences and Workflows
Customize StealthStation to make tasks more efficient for you.
Import Options for Patient Pre-op Exams
Pre-op exams are the foundation for patient registration and navigation.
StealthMerge software lets you auto-merge a variety of exams, then see the results in high resolution 3-D images
Improved Patient Registration
StealthStation S8 allows you to combine fiducial and anatomic points with surface-matching trace techniques.
The Stealth™ Navigus™ frameless biopsy solution provides control when accessing the lesion and navigating the biopsy needle.
Stealth Navigus for Frameless Biopsy
A skull-mounted trajectory guide provides access through a small burr hole.
Stealth Vertek Biopsy Device
A flexible arm and aiming device for versatile positioning and targeting.
StealthStation™ cranial reducing tubes support placement of Visualase™ laser catheters. The tubes are intended for use with the Vertek™ precision aiming device and biopsy instrument set.
The StealthStation cranial software supports both the planning and navigating of complex procedures using stereotactic frames. Use StealthViz™ software to create white matter tracts and seamlessly transfer the results to the StealthStation™ for visualization of all the information together.
Choose from a variety of DBS lead delivery mechanisms including a stereotactic frame, Nexframe™ Stereotactic System using StealthStation™ navigation, or the FHC STarFix™ System. ACPC image reformatting has been simplified with improved tools for defining AC, PC, and midline plane. Traditional indirect targeting formulas may be customized based on surgeon specific preferences and new targets may be created for streamlining the day of surgery planning workflow.
Overlay a model of microelectrodes and Medtronic DBS leads onto surgical plans to provide visualization of lead and contacts relative to the target and surgical plan. Collect intra-operative MER data through annotations along surgical plans. These annotations, in combination with the overlay of the Medtronic DBS leads, provide a meaningful visual communication to the neurologist of what happened the day of surgery.
Interact with the fully integrated Schaltenbrand Wahren Atlas to gain a better understanding of the relative location of structures for teaching purposes.
Create white-matter tracts and transfer them to the StealthStation.
Navigation and Imaging for Deep Brain Stimulation Procedures
Using StealthStation and the O-arm together in the OR.
StealthStation™ S8 EM navigation is a pinless option to optical navigation. EM navigation tools include a stylet with a tracking tip, patient trackers, and malleable suction instruments.
StealthStation EM is configured with a single cart or dual carts and a compact instrument interface box. There are two emitter options, both with a large tracking volume.
Flat Emitter for StealthStation EM
The flat emitter is designed to be placed under the patient’s head. It is placed in accessory storage on the back of the cart.
Side-Mount Emitter for StealthStation EM
The side-mount emitter offers broad positioning options. It has a small footprint and mounts on the side of the cart.
The StealthStation™ EM stylet aids placement of compatible devices including:
StealthStation™ EM patient trackers are MRI Conditional, improving workflow during intra-operative MRI cases. Choose a skull-mounted or non-invasive model.
The suction instruments have Stealth™ EM technology in the tip. Simply bend the instrument as necessary and continue operating. Choose a standard, ball, or angled tip.
StealthStation EM Flexible Stylet
Navigate the StealthStation EM stylet with compatible devices.
StealthStation EM Stylet with External Ventricular Drainage Catheter
Use the EM stylet to place a VentriClear External ventricular drainage catheter.
StealthStation EM Stylet with Introducer Catheter
Use the EM stylet to place a peel-away introducer catheter.
StealthStation EM Non-invasive Patient Tracker
StealthStation EM Skull-Mounted Patient Tracker
Your Hub for Surgical Knowledge
StealthStation can integrate each technology and transform complex data into useful information.
The O-arm™ surgical imaging system provides real-time, intra-operative imaging of devices such as DBS leads, microelectrodes, depth electrodes and biopsy needles. O-arm™ 3-D imaging combined with image fusion on the StealthStation™ confirms that the surgical goal was achieved.
Close with Confidence
Confirm that you achieved the surgical goal by combining O-arm 3-D imaging with image fusion on the StealthStation. The example shows a deep brain stimulation procedure.
See StealthStation™ images on the heads-up display through microscope oculars while maintaining visualization of the anatomy.
Integrating ultrasound data intra-operatively with your Stealth may help you monitor for brain shift. Choose active or passive optical tracking. Integration is simple:
