Why is an optical surgical navigation system important in the O.R.?

Through technological advances in medicine, it allows health experts to reach levels of precision and safety using optical surgical navigation systems within the operating field, which are extended and assisted by computer, magnifying images, facilitating diagnosis, planning and execution of procedures.

Currently, surgeries assisted by optical navigation systems transform the operating rooms to face unthinkable practices. In this way, doctors play an important role in the conditioning of the operating room of the future, creating the link between diagnostic imaging data taken before or during surgery and measures such as dissection, tissue ablation or local injections. This allows the surgeon to evaluate the case much more effectively and thus establish the best diagnosis. In addition, surgical intervention can be planned and simulated virtually before surgery.

Benefits of Optical Surgical Navigation Systems in the Operating Room

Thanks to methods based on the technology of digital imaging applied to health science, it translates into the following benefits: 

  • It provides surgeons with the opportunity for pre-operative planning and accurate navigation of instruments during intervention.
  • Allows for minimally invasive operation solutions. 
  • The specialist quickly gets information to determine where you need to make incisions and perform surgery. 
  • It is a milder method, less pain for patients, leading to greater accuracy and a shorter procedure. 
  • It increases patient safety and requires the surgeon’s work. Mistakes are avoided.

It should be noted that this systematized technique of optical surgical navigations used in the operating room is advantageous, since it increases the precision and reduces the sequels that some interventions may have. They also shorten the time of hospitalization of patients, as these are minimally invasive interventions. In addition, this surgery reduces postoperative complications.

Robotics as an Optical Surgical Navigation System

Optical surgical assisted navigation systems in operating theaters have contributed to the robotic development as a tool adjusted to 3D models, which manage to reproduce geometrically exact situations of tissues and areas of interest of patients.

Therefore, the surgeon carries out the operation using a console that remotely controls very small instruments attached to a robot, as imaging and simulation technique for the preparation of the intervention, creating intelligent, interconnected operating rooms that allow access to medical history, analytics, X-rays and images of the area to be operated. In addition, it allows reaching areas inaccessible to the medical hand, resulting in a greater effectiveness in the intervention, being in this way the safest for the patient.

Optical Surgical Navigator brand Kalstein

At Kalstein, we are able to offer you the best equipment of high technological quality, with YR series models, the advanced optical tracking system tracks 3D position in real time and the orientation of active or passive markers attached to surgical tools, to provide exceptional accuracy (1.0 mm spatial resolution) and reliability. The innovative system of optical surgical navigation in the operating room helps to reduce the surgeon’s errors during the intervention, providing them with additional information through augmented reality, improving their orientation, accuracy and patient safety.

In addition, the 3D simulation and modeling procedure of anatomical structures in material (such as skin, skull, brain tissue or target injury) can be easily defined by surgical convenience, providing operators navigation modes for comprehensive monitoring of the navigation process, automatically saves all patient image data and registration information, allows the surgeon to quickly charge and continue surgical navigation against unexpected power outage. The YR02143 optical surgical navigation system can be used for all neurological and ORL surgeries, especially in deep intracranial lesions, small intracranial volume lesions, low-invasive edge intracranial lesions and minimally invasive surgeries.
