BERLIN, May 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fiagon, a technology leader who develops and manufactures innovative surgical image guidance technologies, announced today a partnership with Smith+Nephew (NYSE: SNN, LSE: SN), a global medical technology business, to distribute its ENT surgical navigation portfolio in the Asia Pacific Asean region. This agreement covers China, the India subcontinent, Australia, New Zealand, and other ASEAN markets.
"We are excited to partner with a well-established and reputable company such as Smith+Nephew" said Fiagon Group President & CEO Dr. Kai Desinger. "Smith+Nephew has a strong presence in the APAC region which will help expand Fiagon's global footprint and bring our innovative new technology to more ENT's around the world."
Fiagon's open architecture platform combined with Smith+Nephew's breadth of ENT solutions will provide surgeons the ability to perform complex surgeries with confidence while maintaining the highest standard of care and safety for patients.
The Cube, Fiagon's new surgical image guidance platform introduces Virtu4D technology - representing the next dimension in virtual online monitoring supporting modern, minimally invasive and high precision ENT procedures for Offices and Hospitals. This new exciting IGS platform builds upon Fiagon's established history in bringing integrated and easy-to-use navigation technology to ENT surgeons around the world. The Cube4D system also introduces VirtuEye, a new revolutionary non-contact registration tool providing sub millimetric accuracy by collecting hundreds of thousands of data points with just the click of a button.
Fiagon's ENT portfolio also includes a multitude of navigated instruments and adaptors that enable surgeons to track different instruments throughout a typical FESS (functional endoscopic sinus surgery) procedure. Fiagon's proprietary instruments are tip-tracked and do not require calibration making them intuitive and easy to use. The instruments can be bent and adjusted to accommodate various anatomical structures within the sinuses, allowing ENT surgeons to maximize efficiency within their procedures.
