Navigable, disposable brain biopsy cannula for increased patient safety

Computer-assisted and software-controlled neuronavigation is becoming increasingly important for neurosurgery and brain biopsies, as it allows surgical processes and tissue sampling to become safer and more effective while reducing possible complications.

When used with Brainlab® or Medtronic® navigation systems, the navigable brain biopsy cannula further optimizes the biopsy process with its easy and safe handling. With the help of precisely pre-assembled markers, and in combination with navigation systems, surgeons are able to determine the exact position of the instrument at any given time.

The functional design of the ergonomic transparent cannula is a characteristic feature of Neuromedex brain biopsy cannulas, as the shape and signal colours of the instrument allow both the tactile and visual control of the cutting window simultaneously.

The cannula is designed as a single-use, disposable instrument and thus minimises the risk of infection, which is significantly higher for reusable instruments due to insufficient cleaning of the tiny lumina. This ensures improved patient safety and reduces consequential costs. Furthermore, there are no costs for the processing and wear of reusable instruments, further reducing costs.
