This interactive surgical app features a controllable 3D animation of a minimally invasive lateral interbody spinal fusion procedure combined with percutaneous posterior fixation.
This material is intended for Healthcare Professionals Only. If you are not a Healthcare Professional, please consult your doctor for additional information regarding this procedure.
Features * Step-by-Step technique from patient positioning to closure for lateral Interbody fusion and Percutaneous posterior fixation.. * Interactivity includes the ability to zoom in and out, hide body structures and instruments, or make them transparent, change camera angles, and more.
The DePuy Spine MIS Degenerative Procedure app allows the user to experience an interactive virtual spine surgery in real time. The procedure begins as a guided tour with narration, starting with patient positioning and ending with wound closure. The user has full control of visualization of anatomical structures and instruments from any angle. While exploring the environment the user can double click on any object to focus, and zoom into it, as well as view its name. The chapter menu in the upper left allows the user to scroll through and jump to different steps in the surgery quickly and easily.
With the growing prevalence of minimally invasive surgical (MIS) approaches in the spine, the lateral approach to interbody fusion has emerged as an MIS procedure that allows for the treatment of spinal disorders while at the same time minimizing the disruption to surrounding structures. The benefits of percutaneous posterior fixation may include reduced soft tissue damage, less blood loss, lower infection rates, and faster recovery times when compared to open transpedicular fixation. This procedural combination may be used to address many degenerative, deformity, or other lumbar conditions resulting in patients benefiting from a minimally invasive approach.
The MIS Platform utilized in this procedure leverages DePuy Spine’s proven experience in designing products that treat a wide range of pathologies from the simple to the complex. This system was developed in close collaboration with top experts in the ﬁelds of neurosurgery and orthopaedic surgery to provide a comprehensive solution to performing lateral interbody fusion with posterior fixation.
The complete surgical spine platform displayed in this app features the PIPELINE® LS Lateral Access System, COUGAR® LS Lateral Cage System, and VIPER®2 System. This innovative, integrated platform of products provides controlled access, simpliﬁed cage insertion, and versatile posterior ﬁxation options.
