ACCESS CUBE & PUNCTURE CUBE
Navigate with ease - The Cube Navigation System is an easy-to-learn, use, and adopt navigation support for CT-guided interventions.
The sterile guidance Cube is scanned with the patient, allowing the physician to choose an optimal route to the target while the software calculates the coordinates in the Cube. The puncture is then performed through those coordinates on the top and bottom plates of the Cube, with minimal disruption to the workflow. You choose the route, the algorithm guides your path through the Cube. It’s that simple.
The latest addition to the Cube Navigation System, the ACCESS CUBE is designed to guide needles and thin instruments up to 10G and therefore can be used for a large range of minimally-invasive interventions.
Complex procedures like ablations, biopsies, and placement of drainage tubes, even with difficult trajectories, can be performed with high accuracy and planning reliability.
With removable grids, the ACCESS CUBE allows for full access to the field of intervention, giving the user optimal control and functionality.
Designed for pain therapy interventions, the PUNCTURE CUBE ensures effective pain treatment by bringing the needle precisely to the target injection site. Supporting needle sizes 18-22G, the PUNCTURE CUBE is an easy to use needle alignment tool in CT-guided punctures. Once the needle has been inserted securely, the PUNCTURE CUBE can be collapsed, allowing the interventionist to perform slight adjustments or reach deep targets.
With the PUNCTURE CUBE, the active substance can be administered precisely, faster, with fewer control scans and with more consistent results.
First punctures performed with the CNS were more than 4x closer to the target (2.5 mm ± 1.2 mm vs. FHM 12.1 mm ± 7.7 mm).
Final puncture locations were significantly more accurate (3.8 mm ± 1.3 mm vs. FHM 6.7 mm ± 4.5 mm, p=0.004).
Punctures required significantly less time (263.1 s ± 84.4 s vs. FHM 411.2 s ± 141.0 s, p<0.001) and needed only half the control scans (1.4 ± 0.6 vs. FHM 2.8 ± 0.4, p<0.001).
