Neurotechnics provides innovative high quality products within the fields of secondary care, predominantly neurosurgical and orthopaedic therapeutical areas.
The Advanced Control Base is the primary component of the Mizuho OSI Modular Table System. It is designed to easily interface with a C-arm and be utilized with three, interchangeable tops which are specifically designed to support patient positioning for a variety of surgical procedures.Types of Procedures:
As part of the Mizuho OSI Modular Table System, the Spinal Surgery Top with its open frame design and individual positioning pads mount on the Advanced Control Modular Base and support the patient in the prone position for spinal surgery. When the Spinal Surgery Top is utilized in conjunction with the Radiolucent Imaging Top a patient can be easily repositioned from supine to prone.Common Procedures:
For Unrestricted C-Arm Use with Anterior/Posterior, Lateral and Oblique Intra-operative Imaging
The Radiolucent Imaging Top with its carbon fiber construction provides complete radiolucency and allows for unrestricted C-arm integration when mounted on the Advanced Control Modular Base. It easily supports a patient in the supine, lateral or prone position.
When the Spinal Surgery Top is utilized in conjunction with the Radiolucent Imaging Top a patient can be easily repositioned from supine to prone without physically removing them from a table top.Application* Flexibility:
The Orthopedic Trauma Table Top is part of the Mizuho OSI Modular Table System providing a complete powered, orthopedic table for easy patient positioning and provides for skin or skeletal traction during key trauma procedures.
The Orthopedic Trauma Table Top can be used in conjunction with Mizuho OSI Modular Table Bases 5890, 5891,5892 and 5803. The unique Traction Arc provides for anatomically correct lower extremity skin or skeletal traction for all patient positions during orthopedic trauma procedures.Orthopedic Trauma Table applicable procedures:
The Misonix BoneScalpel™ is a novel and unique surgical device in that it offers a gentler osteotomy as compared to standard bone cutting tools. It efficiently slices crystalline bone while leaving elastic soft tissues largely unaffected during incidental contact. This can be particularly important during spinal surgery where bone segments are frequently removed in close vicinity to the spinal cord, nerve roots and major arteries. Ultrasonic cutting of bone is made possible by amplifying an electrical signal and converting it into a high back-and-forth motion of a blunt blade at the extremely high frequency of 22,500 times per second.
The ultrasonically vibrating blade compresses the bone through repetitive impacts at 22,500 times per second cleaving its way into the bone and creating the cut. Tactile feedback allows the surgeon to sense differences in bone density as he or she is cutting through cortical and cancellous layers. Due to its elasticity, soft tissue is minimally affected during incidental contact with the blade. This is beneficial, for example in spinal decompression surgery when bone is being removed to relieve pressure on a spinal nerve to treat spinal stenosis.
BoneScalpel is unique in that it offers a gentler osteotomy as compared to standard bone cutting tools. It efficiently slices crystalline bone while leaving elastic soft tissues largely unaffected during incidental contact.* Imagine being able to cut a tiny window into the calcified shell of a raw egg without puncturing the underlying membrane… For a spine surgeon this translates into being able to dissect the vertebral arch all the way down to the ligamentum, which covers the spinal cord. This is a routine yet delicate procedure used for nerve decompressions or spinal fusions that is normally done by subsequently switching to less aggressive cutting tools.
*Contact to soft tissues should be brief and under moderate pressure
BoneScalpel offers a number of benefits to surgeons, anesthesiologists and patients. Of highest significance is a substantial reduction of blood loss and use of blood products during the most complex spinal procedures involving the fusion of vertebrae over multiple levels. A reduction in blood loss can make it easier for surgeons and anesthesiologists to manage the patient’s shifting fluid balance during long surgeries. Blood transfusions, while generally safe and routine, are still an extra burden to the patient extending the recovery and come at remaining risks for transmitting diseases. In addition, BoneScalpel’s precision and ability to differentiate between rigid bone and elastic nerve structures become very important when relieving spinal nerves from pain causing compressions, as being caused by abnormal bone growth or degeneration of the spinal column after decades of use.
