Voyant for spine surgery gets US FDA approval

January 14, 2019 0 By FM

Viseon Inc said it received clearance from the USFDA for Voyant System for minimally invasive spine surgery, featuring HD imaging sensor and illumination technology.

The Voyant System is composed of a sterile single-use, disposable retractor device with integrated state-of-the-art visualisation technology, and a reusable controller enabling digital intraoperative manipulation of the surgical site image displayed on existing operating room HD flat-panel display monitors. The sterile device also allows the surgeon to adjust the intraoperative depth of focus.

This system offers an alternative to the surgical microscope and surgical loupes visualisation for many minimally invasive spine surgery procedures, eliminating ergonomic consequences and multiple scope repositioning maneuvers and refocusing, according to Viseon.
Viseon has demonstrated clinical utility in posterior lumbar decompression and interbody fusion procedures and is expanding into lumbar lateral access and anterior cervical decompression fusion applications.
