Miethke proSA Adjustable Hydrocephaus Shunt

Aesculap has released an adjustable, gravitational shunt valve, the Miethke proSA.

The physician has the option of using preset flow rates or adjusting them as needed using a compatible valve.

The flow rates for horizontal and vertical positions can be adjusted independently of each other, a feature that, according to Aesculap, should help improve the daily comfort of its users.

Mazor Renaissance Robotic Surgery Guidance System used for Brain Surgery


Mazor Robotics, from Israel, has announced that the first robot-guided brain surgical procedures using the Mazor Renaissance platform have been successfully performed.

Applications in the brain will be for biopsies, shunt placements and neurostimulation electrode placement such as for deep brain stimulation. In these procedures it will be an alternative to the use of stereotactic frames for navigation.


According to the company, the robot’s precision, simplicity and safety profile have the potential to increase patient comfort, improve surgical accuracy and provide a less invasive approach, as well as potentially increase utilization of the installed base.
