New Innovation For Spinal Surgery And Orthopaedic Interventions

The Ziehm CAPPA IS is a new direct digital mobile C-arm with fully integrated surgical navigation system.

It provides surgeons with the ultimate flexibility in specialist orthopaedic and spinal surgical procedures. The technology shows the surgeon the exact location and orientation of surgical instruments assisting with operative procedures and planning, before, during and after incision.

Modules available for the system include CAPPA SPINE 3DZ and CAPPA for Orthopaedics.

CAPPA SPINE 3DZ is designed for safe navigation in spinal surgery. It enables the simple planning and quick placing of pedicle screws. The navigation is based upon an intra-operative 3D-data set of the spine column. With the help of an infrared camera and reference marker spheres on the surgical instruments, the surgeon plans various trajectories in the data record. The operating tools such as awl or drill are then guided along the planned access paths. During the procedure, the positioning of instruments and screws can be tracked on the monitor.

CAPPA for Orthopaedics is designed to assist the orthopaedic surgeon with hip endoprosthesis and conventional prosthesis.
