Accessories for stereotaxy and functional
Neurosurgery – Application in the field of brain.
Inomed offers a wide range of accessories and instruments for stereo tactic and functional neurosurgery.
- Disposable biopsy probes (Sedan-type)
- Reusable biopsy forceps (also pediatric)
- Reusable spiral probes (Backlund-type)
We support the following stereotactic systems for brain surgery (the choice of system determines the working length of the biopsy instruments):
- Zamorano Duchovny (ZD)
- Riechert-Mundinger (RM)
For neurosurgical and radiosurgical procedures and treatments, the goal is to achieve – as closely as possible – a preoperatively planned target point for brain surgery. Imaging procedures, such as computer tomography or magnetic resonance imaging, can provide images of the patient during brain surgery. With the help of modern computer software, such as inomed iPS planning software, it is possible to view this tomogram either individually or as a three-dimensional image and to analyze the target for brain surgery.
The inomed open ceramic ring ensures minimum interference and maximum artefact reduction when imaging is used, and this is particularly the case with MRI. The semi-open architecture means a part of the patient’s face is not covered. This increases patient comfort, especially during brain surgery while awake.
The open ceramic ring has been specially designed for use with imaging in modern MRI scanners. Often used in compact head coils for brain surgery (e.g. Siemens Vision), it limits the size to an outer diameter of 260 mm. The concept of the open ring still allows access to the ENT region of the patient. In order to achieve the best possible MR imaging and correct for artefacts during brain surgery, a ceramic material is used. This is a high-performance ceramic material. It is characterized by its high resistance to mechanical loads during normal hospital operation and is largely resistant to the effects of daily steam sterilization.
