Plan before surgery and cut time spent in the operating room

Modern planning systems with 2D and 3D images let orthopaedic surgeons diagnose and plan orthopaedic procedures—for instance knee, hip and complex trauma surgery—with greater accuracy and confidence. With increased precision in planning and more advance preparations, surgeons and operating teams can reduce stress, save time, and minimize risk during surgery. For the patients, planning reduces the risk of postoperative complications. For hospitals, it creates a well-documented workflow to meet regulatory demands and improves the teaching facilities.

Visualize trauma structure and improve operating efficiency

Pre-op planning on 3D images improves planning of such complex cases as multiple fragment traumas. By visualizing trauma structure, you can diagnose a fracture without first opening the patient. This minimizes the risk of surprises and stress during surgery, which also shortens the time spent in the operating room.

3D pre-op planning allows trauma teams to correctly diagnose and plan for surgery, to save valuable time during operation, and to improve the quality of diagnosis and the treatment plan. In addition, planning on 3D images facilitates communication in the surgical team, further improving operating efficiency.

Improve planning before spine surgery

Sectra’s 3D spine solution allows surgeons to plan more efficiently for cases involving pedicle screws.  The solution considers each pedicles’ unique anatomy when determining placement and sizing of individual screws.  From standard fusions to complex scoliosis, Sectra is there to help you plan with confidence.

Increase accuracy in joint replacement with 3D planning

Sectra’s 3D Joint Replacement solution lets surgeons easily plan complex arthroplasties. The 3D views and dedicated orthopaedic tools allow for increased accuracy in implant sizing, angle measurements and surgical approach. Surgeons can now study the patient’s anatomy, and plan for surgery, in ways that are simply not possible using today’s standard 2D images. This can ultimately lead to less time in the operating room and improved surgical outcomes.

With Sectra’s 3D Joint Replacement solution, surgeons can gain advantages that prove highly beneficial for their patients. The intuitive tools enable a quick learning curve, while template and angle measurement functions speed up the process of planning through simultaneous use of 3D and MPR views. 3D joint planning also seamlessly removes potential calibration issues and errors, as CT data visualizes true size automatically, improving accuracy in implant selection even further.

Easy pre-op planning with high precision

With the right orthopaedic tools for 2D pre-op planning, you can enhance the preparation of orthopaedic surgery of all body parts—including hip, knees, shoulders, spine, as well as in trauma cases.

With a few simple clicks, you can select a prosthesis with a perfect fit for the patient from our templates database. This results in high precision and efficient performance in your pre-operative planning process.

Save valuable time in osteotomy procedures

A preoperative planning system with advanced guides for osteotomies can save you valuable time when planning a closing or opening osteotomy procedure. It allows the surgeons and operating team to be well prepared before the surgical procedure, and to know what surgical techniques to use.

Simplify and speed up the validation of new orthopaedic implants

Sectra’s CT-based implant Micromotion Analysis (CTMA) simplifies and speeds up the process of validating new orthopaedic implants in vivo. CTMA uses CT images taken up to one or two years after implantation to measure 3D motion of an implant or bone fragment on a submillimeter scale. This information provides the surgeon and implant manufacturers with a strong predictor of the long-term survival of the implant.

Reduce intra-operative complications

Digital images allow digitalized preoperative planning, also called templating. Digital templating offers the ability to solve the scaling problem known to affect traditional templating with analogue plain images. Preoperative planning is an essential part of the surgical procedure, and is of significant value to successful arthroplasty. It makes it possible to plan for the size of components needed, and to achieve correct positioning and orientation of the components to equalize leg length and reduce intra-operative complications.
