Advancing stereotactic neurosurgery
Leksell® Vantage™ Stereotactic System, which builds on our strong principles and foundations of earlier systems, provides clinicians with a powerful and versatile tool to ensure a high level of user confidence and a greatly improved patient experience. Innovative material in the head frame and accessories provide dramatically less image distortion and artifacts, allowing clinicians to see more anatomy and/or speed up the image process.
“Mounting the arc feels solid and robust—it is beautifully engineered!”
Fewer components to keep track of during assembly helps shorten preparation time and reduce the risk of losing parts during cleaning and sterilization. The system consists of four key elements: Leksell® Vantage™ head frame, MR accessories, CT accessories and Leksell® Vantage™ Arc System
User-friendly MR accessories and PEEK polymer fixation pins with a small aluminum tip provide fiducial-based MR imaging with few restrictions. Chosen materials ensure that there is no head frame induced radio frequency heating during imaging in 1.5 T and 3.0 T MR scanners. Leksell Vantage CT-accessories enable stereotactic coordinate referencing based onintraoperative CT as well as diagnostic CT-scanners.
The Leksell Vantage Stereotactic System is based on the proven and well-known Leksell® coordinate system and center-of-arc principle. These principles are implemented in an even more intuitive and user-friendly workflow. The Leksell Vantage Arc System is made of aluminum and has an elegant click-on mechanism for confidence, efficiency and control during surgery.
“The construction of the arc in Leksell Vantage Stereotactic System is more robust, allowing even greater accuracy. At the same time, the lightweight frame is more comfortable for the patient and the open-face design allows improved access for anesthesia. The patient can be intubated with the frame placed in any position without any problems.”
Integrating proven and trusted Leksell principles with intuitive setup and operation make the system easy to use
Easy to set up and operate means procedure can potentially be done in a shorter time frame
Reduced artifact and distortion in stereotactic images together with workflow enhancements support clinician confidence
“Lars Leksell would have liked this.”
Open-face design exposes the patient’s eyes, nose and mouth for unrestricted visibility and access
Fewer frame components with easier assembly and disassembly support shorter overall treatment times
Easy mounting of the frame on the patient’s head supports a positive patient experience
