How does the Intelligent Spinal Navigation Robot accomplish fracture surgery?


With the traditional surgical method using incision and repositioning percutaneous pedicle root nail rod system internal fixation, with the development of minimally invasive technology of intelligent spinal navigation robot, a part of thoracolumbar vertebral fracture can be used in postural repositioning percutaneous pedicle root nail rod system internal fixation. But have you ever heard of using an intelligent spinal navigation robot to complete this fracture surgery?

As the second lifeline of the human body, the spine shoulders the central axis of the human torso, the hub of nerve conduction, surrounded by complex nerves and blood vessels, and its high complexity and risk of clinical surgery puts forward higher requirements for surgical equipment, operator experience and operating techniques. In traditional surgical procedures, the “blind spot” can pose potential safety risks in spinal surgery and lead to postoperative complications, resulting in poor overall clinical outcomes and affecting the patient’s physical recovery and treatment experience.

At the same time, traditional surgical procedures rely too much on intraoperative scanning images and the surgeon’s clinical experience, resulting in a long learning curve for orthopaedic surgeons and limited talent development. Orthopaedic navigation robots can make up for this shortcoming through digitalization, navigation and other advanced technologies, greatly reducing intraoperative risks and achieving better surgical results.

Preoperative imaging (DR, CT)

In the past, surgical planning mostly depended on the spine surgeon’s brain projections based on the patient’s CT images and hands-on experience. With the special “brain” of the Intelligent Spine Navigator Robot, the surgeon is able to conduct comprehensive pre-operative planning in advance through artificial intelligence software.

The Intelligent Spine Navigator can intuitively restore the patient’s real physiological characteristics and bone arrangement on the computer screen, and can directly simulate the placement of virtual implants (e.g., screws), surgical incisions, and simulate postoperative orthopedic effects through the software to reduce the complications caused by nerve damage. At the same time, it also allows patients to clearly understand the surgical method before surgery and have an image and intuitive cognition of the surgical effect, which reduces the psychological burden and realizes better doctor-patient communication.

Director Wang Boyao and his team from The Second Affiliated Hospital of Nanjing Medical University successfully completed the surgery with the assistance of Perlove’s intelligent spinal navigation robot. The surgery went very smoothly, and the patient recovered well after the operation with significant pain relief. On the second day after the operation, the patient could turn over on his own under the guidance of the medical nurse and go down to the ground in advance under the protection of the lumbar girdle.
