First Biannual Educational Brunch

On Saturday the 30th of March, Vision Medical Cape Town branch hosted it’s first biannual educational brunch. 

This was a wonderful morning spent with local scrub sisters, theatre staff and secretaries. The event entailed providing  insight into not only how and why intra-opertaive nerve monitoring is essential in certain procedures,  but also what products are being used and how they work.

The feedback was well received and we are looking forward to the next educational brunch. 

Disposable Stimulating Curved Needle

The Disposable Stimulating Curved Needles (previously the Kartush Stimulating Probe) are designed to cut, lift and dissect tissue during surgery while providing electrical stimulation simultaneously.

They are used in ear, parotid, neurotology/neurosurgery and thyroid surgery.  They can be used in any surgery that can benefit from continuous or frequent stimulation during critical portions of the procedure as the surgeon works in close proximity to a nerve.

They can improve patient outcomes with constant stimulation and can also save the surgeon valuable time by eliminating the need to change back and forth from a cutting tool to a stimulating tool.

Lantern Laryngeal Electrode

Lantern Laryngeal Electrode
The Lantern Laryngeal Electrode has been designed to address the short-comings of existing laryngeal monitoring electrodes. This novel, patent-protected design will result in improved patient outcomes due to its ability to better localize and record from the recurrent laryngeal nerve innervated muscles (vocal cords).

The electrode has been registered for a NAPPI code and is available for purchase.  The old style laryngeal electrodes will be phased out over the next two months thus by 1st September only the new lantern laryngeal electrode will be available for purchase. Download the full brochure here

Here are a couple of interesting YouTube clips showing the electrode in action:
