The need to precisely localize targets within the brain and to refer them to important anatomical structures has occupied neurosurgeons since the early years of intracranial surgery. Craniometry, developed by neuroanatomists in the 19th century, was the first practical method of surgical navigation. It is still being used today as a crude but useful means to correlate the position of superficial brain anatomy with readily identifiable cranial hallmarks. Stereotaxis, first introduced by Horsley and Clarke in [1], represented the first big leap into deep brain localization.

BrainLAB AG Unveils VectorVision(R) Flex

Brainlab is a privately held German medical technology company headquartered in Munich , Bavaria that develops hardware and software for radiosurgery , image guided surgery technologies for neurosurgery , orthopedic surgery , ENT, CMF, spine and trauma, as well as digital operating room integration and cloud-based data sharing. Vilsmeier, then 17, laid the ground for the company with the proceeds from a book he published about 3D graphics. In , Brainlab developed a linear accelerator-based system for stereotactic radiosurgery using micromultileaf collimators. Brainlab expanded into the field of image-guided surgery in with the VectorVision Neuronavigation System and was the first to develop passive marker technology. Brainlab introduced its first shaped-beam radiosurgery system, Novalis, in Digital Lightbox was transformed in into the current product Buzz Digital O. In , Brainlab recalled the spine and trauma 3D software because it could display inaccurate information during a procedure that could prevent the surgeon from safely navigating surgical tools inside the patient.


First Experience with the BrainLab VectorVision Neuronavigation System

Objective: The BrainLab VectorVision neuronavigation system was used in cases of different brain pathological conditions. The neuronavigation system was used without problems in cases. These cases included microsurgical operations, 4 endoscopic procedures, 4 frameless stereotactic biopsies, and 3 catheter placements. Methods: The BrainLab VectorVision neuronavigation system is an intraoperative, image-guided, frameless, localization system. The system consists of a computer workstation for registration of images and physical spaces, an intraoperative localization device, and a computer image display. The system provides real-time responses regarding the locations of surgical instruments.

Class 2 Device Recall BrainLAB's VectorVision spine

Skip to main content. Published: Sep 23, VectorVision flex works with the hospital's existing network, for instant access to patient data. Developed with flexibility in mind, VectorVision flex offers components that can be used independently or integrated with one another to address the hospital's needs. Navigation can be conducted from within or outside of the sterile field; intra-operative imaging capabilities can be expanded with ultrasound, C-arm, iMRI and iCT integration; and collaboration and utilization can be enhanced through iPlan R Net remote treatment planning and additional network connected Digital Lightbox units installed throughout the hospital. Digital Lightbox offers an additional 30" high-resolution display with an intuitive, multi-touch interface allowing access to patient images and surgical planning tools for manipulation of patient data pre-, intra- and post-operatively. The VectorVision flex platform's space-saving design features a small footprint camera stand that can be separated or docked and dual network connections that eliminate cumbersome cords in the OR.
