CTrue

Navigating through the mesentery during colon surgery

THE CHALLENGE

During D3 extended mesenterectomy, a complex surgical procedure, the surgeons remove the fatty tissues surrounding the mesenteric vessels to decrease the spread of cancer. in patients diagnosed with right-sided colon cancer and/or small bowel tumours. The procedure requires careful and precise dissection to not injure any important vessels that supply blood to the bowels.

Colorectal surgeons utilize 3D reconstructions derived from CT scans to learn the individual patient's anatomy. Today, they can only see these on two-dimensional screens. Therefore the surgeons are looking to mixed reality to find more efficient ways for utilising the 3D vascular models to reduce the time used for navigating the mesentery during cancer surgery.

CTrue

THE SOLUTION

The CTrue solution provides precise navigation by displaying 3D models of the patient's anatomy during surgery. The navigation techniques offered by CTrue can be used in the different modes of surgical access during colon cancer surgery. The goal is that by bettering the navigation techniques, CTrue will support the surgeons in reducing operating time and increase the patients' safety.
