Image Guided Surgical Navigation System is launched in the UK and Ireland

Xograph Healthcare : 28 June, 2007  (New Product)
Xograph Healthcare is to supply the UK and Irish marketplace with Ziehm Imaging's direct digital mobile C-Arm with fully integrated surgical navigation system.
The system, called the Ziehm CAPPA IS, combines Ziehm's best-of-breed direct digital 3D mobile surgical C-arm technology and the latest surgical navigation system.

The state-of-the-art system provides surgeons with the ultimate flexibility in specialist orthopaedic and spinal surgical procedures. The technology shows the surgeon the exact location and orientation of surgical instruments assisting with operative procedures and planning, before, during and after incision.

Modules available for the Ziehm CAPPA IS system include CAPPA SPINE 3DZ and CAPPA for Orthopaedics.

CAPPA SPINE 3DZ is designed for safe navigation in spinal surgery. The system enables the simple planning and quick placing of pedicle screws. The navigation is based upon an intra-operative 3D-data set of the spine column. With the help of an infrared camera and reference marker spheres on the surgical instruments, the surgeon plans various trajectories in the data record. The operating tools such as awl or drill are then guided along the planned access paths. During the procedure, the positioning of instruments and screws can be tracked on the monitor.

The CAPPA SPINE 3DZ also displays other important information on the monitor such as the angle and drilling depth, in 3D and in relation to the anatomy. The surgeon has complete control over the drilling process and pedicle screws can be placed precisely so that the risk of post-operative complications can be minimised.

CAPPA for Orthopaedics is designed to assist the orthopaedic surgeon with hip endoprosthesis and conventional prosthesis. The CAPPA KNEE solution, a part of this module, is for knee endoprosthetics. The solution assists with the correct alignment of the saw-driven incision taking the ligament system into consideration. This enables the surgeon to plan the whole intervention and evaluate the results in advance of performing the procedure.

The Ziehm CAPPA IS is built around the successful space saving footprint of the Ziehm FD Vario 3D mobile C-arm. The compact size saves space in the confined operating theatre environment ensuring good working space for the surgical team.

Neil Staff, technical director of Xograph Healthcare stated, 'The Ziehm CAPPA IS system is an exciting step forward for spinal surgery and orthopaedic surgery. Ziehm Imaging has once again developed a trend-setting and clinically beneficial system for the modern hospital environment'.

Xograph Healthcare has been the exclusive partner of Ziehm Imaging in the UK and Republic of Ireland for over six years.
