Minneapolis-based medical device company Medtronic has unveiled its NuVent EM Sinus Dilation System that comes with a built-in electromagnetic (EM) surgical navigation technology.
NuVent is the only balloon sinus dilation system that features the EM technology and will help surgeons to confirm anatomy and optimize balloon placement during balloon sinus surgery. The surgeons will be able to see the precise location of the instrument with the help of Fusion screen.
"NuVent is very appealing to customers because of its novel built-in surgical EM navigation, ease of use, and the familiar sinus instrument styles. This system is another example of our innovative integration of technologies and therapies that brings Medtronic Surgical Synergy(TM) to the operating room, driving procedural excellence, economic value, and patient care", Medtronic's Vince Racano said.
