For surgical interventions, physicians increasingly use modern navigation technologies comparable. With Cappa C-Nav, Siemens Healthcare offers an optical navigation system that is especially suitable for spinal as well as trauma surgery. The new navigation system enables surgeons to perform interventions with greater safety and precision. Additionally, the method also minimizes radiation exposure to the patient as well as the OR staff.

Activa RCMedtronic's Deep Brain Stimulation Devices Approved for Parkinson's and Essential Tremor

The FDA has given Medtronic approval to market the Activa RC and Active PC deep brain stimulation (DBS) devices, featuring the option of rechargeability, and indicated "for the treatment of the symptoms of advanced Parkinson's disease and essential tremor."

From the press release:

Both Activa RC and Activa PC devices provide bi-lateral stimulation (to both sides of the brain) and offer a more advanced approach to device programming, and additional tools for capturing history relevant to the patient's therapy. New programming options provide greater ability to fine tune the stimulation field and give patients more options to optimize their settings compared to previous DBS devices. Additionally, information about patient symptoms and side effects can be stored in the device, which is helpful to physicians in determining the best programming settings for each patient.
