A state-of-the-art imaging tower provides real-time high-definition (HD) and 4K images for endoscopic minimally invasive surgery (MIS) procedures.
The DePuy Synthes (West Chester, PA, USA) PUREVUE Visualization System combines a broad portfolio of tower components, including an autoclavable camera head, a light source, an advanced image processer, intuitive touchscreen navigation, and a host of other image management solutions designed to provide surgeons with visualization tools across a wide range of MIS procedures, such as rotator cuff repair, sub-acromial decompression, shoulder instability, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) repair, and more.
PUREVUE is a system of sub-systems, comprised of capital equipment components, visualization system optics, and accessories, including:
• The PUREVUE camera control system, which combines a light source, image processer, and local image management into a compact device with proprietary image processing technology that delivers native 1080P HD real-time image acquisition, without upscaling.
• The PUREVUE camera head, with a proprietary sensor designed for endoscopy to help deliver native 1080P HD real-time image acquisition.
• High quality primary and secondary surgical displays featuring functional design elements, an adjustable swivel arm, easy access to component connections, smooth mobility, and integrated power supply. Wireless imaging provides real-time surgical video transmission to secondary surgical displays, with immunity to signal interference.
• A full-page medical grade digital color printer that reproduces images in full HD resolution with outstanding photo-realistic image quality, along with a USB 2.0 interface and fast printing time.
“With Americans living longer and seeking shorter recovery times, the call for minimally invasive procedures is accelerating,” said Stephanie Chamberlain, vice president and global platform leader at DePuy Synthes Mitek Sports Medicine. “We are committed to bringing forward innovation that responds to evolving patient needs, and the PUREVUE Visualization System is an example of how our advanced technologies enable high quality patient care.”
