Modern functional neurosurgery procedures are now so minimally invasive that they have to be planned and performed with the highest degree of precision. The inomed stereotactic systems are defined by their reliability, precision and stability in their overall function. The fact that the work of the surgeon and the OR team is so simplified - because inomed’s systems are so easy to operate - is one of the qualities of inomed’s stereotactic systems that our customers appreciate most.
To date, there are no other systems on the market that are more convenient or have higher precision than the stereotactic systems created by inomed. The following reasons will help to explain why.
The ring-based stereotactic system used by inomed provides the highest level of stability. The basic physical properties of a ring are superior to all other basic geometric shapes in terms of strength and tolerance. This basic design element of the system and structure avoids common sources of error.
inomed stereotactic systems are the only systems worldwide with an advanced target point simulator. With the inomed target point simulator, theoretical planning from the planning software tools can be measured and verified according to the real-world geometric environment. There is no better way to ensure maximum patient safety combined with optimum precision. In addition, the use of inomed target point simulator results is a second and clear practical advantage. This means that when using the planning software, stereotactic frame and MicroDrive system, it is easy to check that the instruments used are functioning properly and within tolerances prior to surgical intervention. No other system on the market is more capable of providing this level of safety and design. inomed stereotactic systems set the absolute benchmark in terms of accuracy.
inomed offers a choice of stereotactic systems to suit customer-specific requirements our customers are able to choose between the Riechert-Mundinger system (RM >>) and the Zamorano-Dujovny (ZD >>) system. Both systems were developed by fellow neurosurgeons. Both systems are also an indelible part of the history of stereotactic neurosurgery. This is a further reason why inomed enjoys an international reputation for providing the highest precision and is respected for continuing the tradition of the application-driven and patient-oriented development of stereotactic devices.
Verification of the stereotactic planning coordinates is performed by the inomed target point simulator, also known as a phantom >>. All the systems combine methods of traditional stereotactics with the modern requirements of stereotactically-guided microsurgery, deep brain stimulation, thalamotomy/pallidotomy, and stereotactic biopsies.
Using inomed products for stereotaxic surgery means you will be benefiting from the reliability of a system where the functioning of all individual components is perfectly coordinated into one complete system.
