The positioning of pedicle screws can lead to perforation of the pedicle wall, jeopardising the integrity of the surrounding spinal nerves.
With its special C2 Spine software, colour-coded accessories and needle-positioning instructions, the C2 Xplore helps to ensure efficient neuromonitoring during spinal column surgery in posterior cervical, lumbar interbody fusions and lateral approaches.
Whether open or minimally invasive procedures, with the C2 Spine system, surgical preparation is quick and easy. The wizard-based Spine software provides intuitive user guidance through the whole procedure.
The software and accessories have consistent colour-coding as well as information for the positioning of the measuring electrodes, facilitating needle positioning and wiring.
With this needle positioning and wiring assistance, neuromonitoring by pedicle stimulation is a simple standard procedure in spinal column surgery.
To check the pharmacological relaxation status of the patient's muscles, an integrated Twitch Test (TOF test) is included in the software. This ensures that no muscle relaxants remain during spinal surgery and no false-negative results are obtained.
While the software is in measurement mode, pedicle screw stimulation allows the automatic recognition of the relevant stimulation threshold. Here, an EMG signal is measured, providing information about the integrity of the pedicle. This crucial information for spinal column surgery is provided and displayed quickly and easily.
