INTELIGENT PRE-OP PLANNING

PRE-SURGERY SCAN UPLOADED

The patient’s CT scan data is uploaded into the PathKeeper system. 

SURGERY PLANNING ON WORKSTATION

The proprietary PathKeeper technology was developed specifically for thoraco-lumbo-sacral spinal procedures. PathKeeper’s surgical planning software enhances the patient’s pre-operative CT scan to create a 3D image for optimal visualization of the spine for precise surgical planning. The surgeon utilizes the many graphical tools provided in the software to make highly accurate, quantitative decisions to precisely navigate surgery.

PRECISE NAVIGATION FOR ACCURATE IMPLANT PLACEMENT

the PathKeeper system offers real-time, precise tracking of the surgical field as it is uniquely capable of segmenting the spine into individual vertebra and tracking each one independently. This independent tracking allows for a quick update of the surgical field, whenever necessary, such as in response to patient movement, device implantation, etc.

 

The PathKeeper system utilizes a near-infrared (NIR) light, which operates seamlessly alongside surgical lights, causing no disruption to the surgeon's view of the surgical field.

 

 

The PathKeeper system assists the surgeon throughout the procedure by continuously providing real-time feedback on the precise location and trajectory of the surgical instruments.

 

 

During the surgery, the pre-planned location and trajectory of the pedicle screw is superimposed on the surface scan and guides the surgeon to align the navigated instruments to the preoperatively planned insertion path.

SURGERY PLANNING ON WORKSTATION

 The proprietary software is state-of-the-art and was developed specifically for thoraco-lumbo-sacral spinal procedures. The CT scan is enhanced by the software which provides many graphical tools and an optimal planning and visualization environment. This enables the surgeon to make highly accurate and quantitative decisions for the surgery trajectory. 

QUICK OPERATIVE SETUP

TOOL SETUP

The PathKeeper system is agnostic to the brand of surgical instruments preferred by the surgeon. Each tool is first equipped with spatial markers and undergo a quick calibration to ensure accurate tracking throughout the surgery.

 

Once the patient is prepped and the target anatomy is exposed, the 3D camera captures a surface scan. An automated registration is performed so that the surgeon can verify that the surface scan is accurately matched to the pre-operative CT scan.

 

During the surgery, with a simple click of a button, the PathKeeper system can take a 3D surface scan on-demand and refresh the registration quickly, without the need for a CT, thereby eliminating inoperative scan radiation.
