Ziehm Imaging and BrainLAB Improve Trauma and Spine Surgery With X-ray Based Navigation
Date:10/26/2009

NUREMBERG, Germany, October 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Ziehm Imaging and BrainLAB have extended their cooperation to assist surgeons in the intra-operative guidance of pedicle screw and hardware placement during surgical trauma and spinal instrumentation procedures. Ziehm's "NaviPort" interface now allows high-resolution 3D images from the Ziehm Vision2 FD Vario 3D mobile C-arm to be used for surgical navigation driven by BrainLAB technology. Ziehm's Vision2 FD Vario 3D provides distortion-free, fully-digital flat-panel technology which reproduces images in more than 16,000 shades of gray. This technology can assist surgeons by providing an improved overview of the finest anatomical structures in three dimensions, for example, when inserting screws and implants. Professor Josten and the Clinic and Outpatients' Department for Trauma, Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery at Leipzig University Clinic were the first in Germany to use this new technology. More installations are now underway in the United States. The Vision2 FD Vario 3D, in combination with BrainLAB technology, will be shown at CNS (October 26-28 in New Orleans) and NASS (November 11-13 in San Francisco).

New study shows: 3D images can facilitate more precise pedicle screw placement

3D imaging is a crucial aid to surgeons operating on the spinal column. Studies prove that pedicle screws are positioned erroneously in 40 percent of all operations that do not employ X-ray monitoring. A study by the Department for Trauma and Reconstructive Surgery at Rostock University Clinic shows that, "using image intensifiers for 3-D imaging makes it possible...to correctly assess screw position and offers the advantage of immediate correction of the screws in case of malpositioning." The study further states, "In the future, with good 3-D scan imaging quality, a postoperative CT scan to assess screw position will not be necessary."
