Viseon has announced that it recently achieved the milestone of 1,000 minimally invasive spine surgery cases in the USA utilising its MaxView intraoperative realtime spinal imaging platform.
According to Viseon, MaxView is a state-of-the-art intraoperative imaging technology that enables a highly magnified unobstructed view of the surgical corridor and critical anatomy projected in real time onto operating room flat panel displays for the surgeon and entire operating room staff, including residents and fellows, to observe, learn and engage.
As an alternative to the expensive and cumbersome surgical microscope, MaxView is a simple, single-use low profile imaging system that enables the surgeon to work in an ergonomically comfortable position, improving overall operating room workflow, enhancing visualisation and reducing risk of complications, the company adds.
MaxView has been utilised in multiple minimally invasive spine surgery procedures, including posterior lumbar decompressions and fusions, tumour removal, lateral and prone lateral fusions as well as cervical procedures, in both the hospital and ambulatory surgery centre.
Jeffrey Valko, Viseon’s chief executive officer, said: “We have been focused, persistent and patient with our limited commercial rollout efforts as the clinical community continues to emerge from safety and economic pressures imposed by the pandemic. Nonetheless, we are proud of our progress and growth from the clinical adoption of our MaxView imaging technology.
“With our early success from over 1,000 minimally invasive spine surgery procedures, we are well positioned to expand into both additional hospital centres and broader clinical indications.
“Our imaging technology is at the core of the evolving world of digital surgery, with plans for implementing machine learning and artificial intelligence toward optimising procedural techniques and enhancing patient outcomes.
“We will be launching our next-generation MaxView system later this year that will enable the user to seamlessly record every clinical procedure and build a database supporting the clinical value of MaxView technology, as well as expanding our strategic initiatives.
“Viseon also plans to expand into the evolving field of minimally invasive endoscopic spine surgery, offering additional differentiated clinical benefits including a dry surgical field.”
