Surgical Theater 360XR Visualization Utilized in Successful Separation of Extremely Rare Conjoined Twins in Israel

Monday, September 20, 2021 - 4:00pm

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Surgery itself is very daunting, but a surgery that has only been performed a few times in the world, is unimaginable for any parent. All the questions, all the fears, all the risks, all the possible scenarios that cannot be foreseen. Luckily for the medical staff at Soroka Medical Center, they were powered with the best medical applications to help them mitigate risks associated with such a complex surgery. One of those technologies, developed by Israeli American company, Surgical Theater, played a pivotal role in providing the medical team with tools that went beyond their visual limitations.

Key Points: 
  • It took a team of doctors atSorokaMedical Center in Israel to perform this complex procedure involving twins born fused together at their head.
  • The patients were 1-year-old partially craniopagus twins that had been conjoined at the back of their heads, facing away from one another.
  • Surgical Theater 360 VR models provided advanced insights to analyze critical blood vessels and plan for the end goal of separating the twins in the safest, and most anatomically normal repositioning as possible.
  • When paired with intraoperative neuronavigation, Surgical Theater's 360 VR model continued to provide surgeons the necessary visualization instrument.
