Best Medical Equipment for Spinal cord abscess Treatment and Diagnosis
Da Vinci Robotic Surgery System
The system provides a surgeon with precise tiny instruments to manage surgery with maximal safety and accuracy. A surgeon manipulates on a special console, observing the operated area on 3D images in real-time. The tiny instruments make accurate incisions excluding the “trembling hand” effect and wrong movements.
Da Vinci robotic system is used as an alternative to open surgery to reduce pain, bleeding, minimize risks of infection and trauma of healthy tissues. An operation is performed through several 1cm incisions, not a big one 15 cm in size as for open surgery. Due to this, a patient recovers faster compared to traditional surgery: within 2-3 weeks instead of several months.
A group of 7 patients of the medium age of 43.8 years with schwannomas, chordoma, and solitary fibroma had robotic sacral surgery. During the research, the following results had been revealed: the medium blood loss was 52 ml; the duration of surgery ranged between 60-355 min; hospital stay continued for 5.7 days on average. No tumor recurrence was observed during a follow-up for 24-31 months, depending on the case.
CyberKnife is a robotic device to perform radiosurgery with precise radiation delivery to the organs affected with benign and malignant tumors.
This method allows destroying tumors without incisions and pain; it is frequently used as an alternative to surgery when neoplasms are hard to reach or cannot be operated. The radiation is directed accurately, so it does not affect healthy tissues or organs. Treatment with CyberKnife is an outpatient procedure: just after a session (it lasts about 30-90 minutes), a patient can return home and their everyday activities.
Several studies with participation of 500 patients with spinal tumors show pain relief and tumor growth control in almost all participants. Another clinical study of 64 of patients with spinal metastases experienced a long-lasting pain and tumor growth control after the treatment.
Proton therapy is a type of radiation therapy affecting tumors with protons, not X-rays. The X-rays damage healthy tissues on their way to a tumor that limits their usage. In the case with proton therapy, protons precisely hit a neoplasm, while healthy tissues remain unaffected that allow using stronger doses of irradiation to hit tumors located near vital organs. During a session, a patient lays on the table and a machine rotates producing proton beams to hit a tumor.
This is an outpatient procedure; a person can leave a hospital just after a session is over. Usually, the whole treatment cycle takes 30 minutes to complete. It usually continues 5 times a week for several weeks. The radiation dose may change over the treatment. No specific rehab is needed. Such side effects as fatigue, headache, hair loss that can develop over time.
Within the research, 51 patients with an average age of 58 years participated. They had such spinal tumors as chordoma and chondrosarcoma. The follow-up time was 3.7 years on average after proton-beam therapy. The overall 4-year survival rate was 72%. In 57% of cases, the disease receded.
