OmniGuide Introduces The BeamPath Neuro(TM): A CO2 Laser Fiber for Brain And Spine Surgery
Date:9/22/2008

First, Flexible CO2 Laser Scalpel Provides Surgeons with No-Touch Surgical Tool For Precision Brain and Spine Surgery

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- OmniGuide, Inc., announced today the introduction of the new BeamPath NEURO(TM), the first flexible CO2 laser scalpel for neurosurgery. The BeamPath NEURO fiber provides surgeons with a precise, no-touch microsurgical tool for various central nervous system (CNS) procedures, including intracranial tumor surgeries, spine tumor surgeries and transnasal pituitary surgeries. BeamPath NEURO is designed for operating near critical structures, for accessing difficult to reach regions of the brain and for minimizing thermal injury to adjacent healthy tissue of the brain or spine.

The clinical benefits of CO2 lasers for neurosurgery were recognized 30 years ago. However, prior to BeamPath, CO2 lasers could only be delivered through a large articulated arm system and were limited to "line-of-sight" procedures. As a result, for the past twenty years, CO2 lasers have rarely been used in neurosurgery. With the introduction of the BeamPath NEURO flexible CO2 laser, neurosurgeons now have the ability to perform precise dissection, cutting, debulking, and microvascular coagulation using a hand-held, no-touch instrument.

"Neurosurgeons have long realized the benefits of CO2 lasers for microsurgery, but the traditional means of delivering the laser were too rigid and unwieldy for microsurgery, limiting lasers' use in our specialty," said Robert F. Spetzler, M.D., F.A.C.S., Director, Barrow Neurological Institute, J.N. Harbor Chairman of Neurological Surgery in Phoenix, Ariz. "A flexible CO2 laser is ideal for removing small tumors that are in close proximity to critical structures, including very sensitive areas of the brain and spinal cord, as well as for tumors in deep holes, when the most precise, no-touch surgical tool is essential."
