Heads-up displays are best known for their use in fighter jets to help pilots target enemy aircraft. But now MAQUET Cardiovascular out of Wayne, New Jersey has released its own version, the VASOVISION Endoscopic Visualization System, to help surgeons aim at saphenous veins during endoscopic vessel harvesting procedures (EVH) for coronary artery bypasses. Because of the precision required, it can be difficult to operate endoscopic tools while looking at a monitor located in a different field of view from where the instruments are. Hence this new VASOVISION display can be worn during the EVH harvest as it is designed to work with all of the company’s VASOVIEW systems.
Here are the features of the display:
Easy to use and lightweight Comfortable fit for any user Fingertip adjustments for image brightness and contrast Central viewing pane provides a wide field of view while enabling peripheral vision Compatible with all MAQUET VASOVIEW systems Clear visualization of procedure Improved comfort and ergonomics during harvesting Enhanced and streamlined harvesting experience
