Its three components and ball-and-socket design provide range of motion and stability in the replaced area of the spine, factors that reduce reoperations at adjacent lev- els. The implant's pronged design and plasma-sprayed titanium surface improve contact and integration with surrounding bone. It comes in 12 combinations of foot- prints, heights and angles for accurate matching to a patient's specific anatomy. centinelspine.com The Dawn of a New Era In Digital Surgery TransEnterix has announced the FDA clearance of the Intelligent Surgical Unit (ISU) for the Senhance Surgical System, the company's first step in bringing aug- mented reality and machine vision learn- ing to robotic surgery. The Senhance sys- tem currently features eye-tracking cam- era control; machine learning would allow the platform to recognize objects and locations within the surgical field, and guide the camera independently of the surgeon's actions. TransEnterix says the technology is forward-compatible with advanced imaging technology, including augmented intelligence, scene cognition and surgical image analysis. transenterix.com Up Next in Microinvasive Glaucoma Surgery The OMNI Surgical System from Sight Sciences lets surgeons treat points of aque- ous humor outflow resistance at the trabec- ular meshwork, Schlemm's canal and distal collector channels. The device's next gener- ation design includes improved ergonomics and user-friendly features based on sur- geon feedback, including an enhanced method for priming the device, a flexi-grip surface on a newly designed ovoid handle for improved ergonomics, and enhanced deployment and retraction of the micro- catheter to reduce intraocular pressure. The overall result is a device that's easier and more comfortable to use. sightsciences.com Product News G r e a t i d e a s f o r y o u r O R
