Ureteral injuries have a documented incidence of 0.3% to 1.8% in lower pelvic procedures.1, 2
Litigation costs from ureteral injuries range from $600,000 to several million dollars.3
The 1588 AIM Platform allows you to see more in urological surgery. The platform is designed to enhance visualization by illuminating the ureters and to see through visual impediments typically experienced during surgery.
IRIS: Infrared Illumination System
IRIS is a visualization technology designed to reduce the risk of ureteral damage. When IRIS mode is activated on the L10 light source, a lighted stent transilluminates the ureters.
Clarity: Video Enhancement
A real-time video enhancement device designed to amplify visualization by improving clarity, contrast and detail. This military grade technology helps you see through smoke and sub optimal conditions by improving image quality up to 48%.4
Connected OR operating system
Stryker’s Connected OR operating system provides control of compatible devices and customization of equipment from a single, intuitive touchscreen.
The Connected OR Operating System powers the iSuite by seamlessly connecting hospital devices from one user interface, providing a simple, intuitive and efficient workflow experience. You have the ability to modify connected surgical device settings in the operating room from one location. This allows your staff to minimize OR movement and surgeon disruptions with the ability to edit and change any intra-operative settings from a single touch panel.
Stryker’s SDC3 is an innovative and intuitive data management solution for the Operating Room. With built in device control, both surgeons and staff can control compatible devices through a variety of options, including the SDC3 touchscreen, wireless remote control, and wireless headset. At the start of each procedure, a customized surgical timeout can also be displayed on the monitors, allowing for an electronic copy of the surgical timeout to be stored in the patient’s file. All of these features can be personalized using customized user profiles at the touch of one button.
