Integra LifeSciences is releasing a much anticipated upgrade to its CRW stereotactic system. Over the past 2 decades, stereotactic sugery has become an increasingly important tool used by neurosurgeons in the treatment of various neurological conditions. This latest version is being showcased by the company in San Francisco at the annual 2010 Congress of Neurological Surgeons Meeting.
The CRW(R) stereotactic system was first developed in 1988 and the CRW Precision(TM) Arc Stereotactic System is a major update to the previous generations of CRW(R) Arc systems. Today’s CRW Precision(TM) Arc Stereotactic System incorporates decades of stereotactic engineering expertise and improvements that greatly enhance its functionality. After listening to feedback from neurosurgeons throughout the world, Integra’s goal was to create an easier to use CRW(R) system while maintaining versatility and accuracy. The result is a system that can be set-up and ready to use in four easy steps, while being accurate to +/- 0.5mm at all its settings.
"From start to finish, the features of the CRW Precision(TM) stereotactic system are designed to reduce time in the operating room and demonstrate Integra’s ongoing commitment to limit uncertainty for our customers, while providing neurosurgeons with the most innovative technology," said Frank Guglielmo, Vice President of Marketing, Integra Neurosurgery.
