ENT Navigation Solutions

• StealthStation™ ENT Navigation System
• StealthStation FlexENT™ Navigation System


Navigation delivers meaningful innovation. With reliable accuracy, you can see the instrument-tip location on the screen — which may allow more thorough dissection and reduced complication risk in select patients.1-3

But it's more than that. We make technology smart and simple. Like factory-calibrated instruments with built-in navigation. And a one-piece, non-invasive patient tracker.

Whatever the surgery, whatever the need — our systems, instruments, and accessories can enhance your workflow and advance patient care.


Medtronic StealthStation ENT Navigation System

The StealthStation™ ENT is a navigation system for your most basic to your most complex cases. It is built on decades of scientific, clinical and engineering research. StealthStation™ ENT navigation system offers electromagnetic technology that expands what was previously possible with image-guided surgery so you can see more, do more.

  • Flat under-the-head emitter
  • Optional side-mount emitter
  • Additional EM coils create large EM field
  • Patient registration provides numerical and visual accuracy feedback
  • Virtual endoscopy provides a simulated 3D endoscopic view of the sinuses
  • 3D modeling provides enriched visualization

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.

Our navigation systems provide real-time positioning information that is designed to help you navigate in and around the sinuses and away from critical structures during removal of diseased tissue.

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:4

  • 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, navigation systems provide valuable information that can help enable more thorough procedures and navigate around critical structures.
