Stryker launches tools for keyhole orthopaedic surgery

Stryker has launched four visualisation tools for surgical arthroscopy to improve efficiency and patient outcomes.

The new HipCheck platform is an interactive tablet that is integrated into existing operating room (OR) workflows. It calculates intraoperative measurements and is intended to deliver accurate measurements of bone deformities.

HipCheck is accompanied by 3D imaging tool HipMap, which improves pre-operative planning.

“We are extremely excited about the potential this combined platform provides our customers for optimal and customised surgical care.”

Stryker’s new tools also include the 1688 AIM 4K Platform for application in multiple specialities such as arthroscopy, laparoscopy, urology, gynaecology and colorectal, as well as ear, nose and throat (ENT). This platform features a variety of enhancements such as 4K display for improved surgical visualisation and technology to automatically correct poor lighting.

The medical technology company’s Connected OR Hub captures, records, streams and prints images directly from the 1688 AIM 4K Platform. The Hub can be used to customise surgeon profiles and tower settings to boost efficiency.

Stryker endoscopy division president Brent Ladd said: “We understand surgeons need to not only visualise anatomy intraoperatively with the highest level of colour reproduction and clarity but also to plan preoperatively for each individual patient.

“We are extremely excited about the potential this combined platform provides our customers for optimal and customised surgical care.”

In October last year, Stryker partnered with Synaptive Medical and Ziehm Imaging to support its presence in the field of surgical guidance.

As part of the alliance with Synaptive Medical, Stryker agreed to provide its BrightMatter Plan software designed to automatically produce whole-brain tractography.

Under the Ziehm Imaging collaboration, Stryker agreed to offer the Ziehm Vision RFD 3D C-arm, which uses flat panel technology to deliver high-quality images.
