Enhancing the Precision and Safety of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is an approach that is becoming increasingly popular in the treatment of spinal conditions. The traditional open surgery approach for spinal surgeries is often associated with significant tissue damage, blood loss, prolonged hospital stays, and recovery periods, and increased risk of complications. Minimally invasive techniques aim to minimize these risks…

Advancing the Safety and Efficacy of Atherectomy Procedures Using Shape Sensing Technology

Atherectomy is a medical procedure that involves removing plaque buildup from inside an artery. Plaque is a fatty substance that can accumulate inside blood vessels, leading to a narrowing of the artery and reduced blood flow. Atherectomy is used to treat this condition, known as atherosclerosis. During an atherectomy, a thin catheter is inserted into…
