Surgical Technology for Tumors in Challenging Locations
Operating on the brain and spinal cord requires superior levels of pin-point accuracy and surgical control and precision. OmniGuide’s novel BeamPath® NEURO product line offers a technological breakthrough that aids in the precise removal of invasive brain and spine tumors.
What are Brain and Spine Tumors?
A tumor (also called neoplasm) is an abnormal mass of tissue that results when cells divide more than they should or do not die when they should . Brain tumors may be benign (not cancerous), or malignant (cancerous). Brain and spine tumors affect both the pediatric and adult population. Their symptoms vary according to size, type and location within the central nervous system. Common symptoms include headaches, nausea, vomiting, seizures, vision disturbances, behavioral changes, and altered levels of consciousness.
Surgical Removal of Tumors
Both benign and malignant brain tumors are initially evaluated for proximity to critical structures such as the brain stem, blood vessels, and specific nerve structures. Surgery, or rather microsurgery, remains a significant treatment option for brain and spine tumors. Partial or complete surgical removal may be supplemented with a combination of radiation therapy, radio-surgery, or chemotherapy. Neurosurgeons use a wide range of technologies to delicately operate on the brain and spinal cord. The BeamPath NEURO series of products give neurosurgeons a slim profile advanced energy device that enhances their ability to perform precision microsurgery in a nerve-sparing, minimally invasive manner.
