7D Surgical has announced the commercial release of its Universal Tracking Kit which spine surgeons can use to track and visualise almost any rigid surgical instrument on the MvIGS system, including third party vendor taps and screwdrivers.
The 7D Surgical MvIGS system utilises camera-based technology and machine vision algorithms to eliminate long-standing frustrations with legacy surgical navigational platforms. The system uses only visible light, eliminating the patient and staff exposure to intraoperative radiation which is common with older technologies. This results in a nearly instantaneous patient registration in almost any surgical position, 7D Surgical said in a press release.
The company has also today announced additions to its cranial product line having received both 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and a medical device license from Health Canada for its Cranial Biopsy Kit, which allows neurosurgeons to use image guidance to accurately target brain lesions during needle biopsy procedures.
“We have completed more than 1,500 clinical cases with the 7D Surgical System and the feedback from our surgeon users has been tremendous. I am excited to offer these new technologies to our customer base which expand the functionality of the MvIGS system while maintaining our clear advantages in speed and reduced radiation exposure to operating room staff and patients,” said Brian Stuart, vice-president of Sales & Marketing at 7D Surgical.
