Elekta Vantage

Leksell® Vantage™
Stereotactic System Uncompromised accuracy
in neuroimaging and treatment

 

New non-metallic material in the head frame and accessories allows clinicians to see more anatomy without artifacts or distortion in imaging.

Since Lars Leksell founded our company more than 45 years ago, Elekta has been dedicated to pioneering advances in stereotactic neurosurgery. Building on our strong principles and foundations, the Leksell® Vantage™ Stereotactic System provides clinicians another powerful and versatile tool to provide a high level of user confidence and a greatly improved patient experience.

Designed for excellence

The proven and well-known Leksell coordinate system and center-of-arc principle are implemented in an intuitive and user-friendly workflow—creating clinical, operational and financial benefits for the clinic.

Three key elements make up the system

1

Our innovative metal-free head frame enables frame-based MR imaging in less time and with less restriction of MR sequences than ever before. This allows clinicians to see more anatomy without artifacts or distortion in imaging. The frame’s open-face design makes it patient friendly and easy to use.

Non-metallic MR-safe accessories give the potential for higher resolution 3D stereotactic neuroimaging, visualizing more of the clinically relevant anatomy.

Our new Leksell® Vantage™ Arc System has an elegant ‘click-on’ mechanism that enables easy automatic docking to the rings of the Z-scales, providing confidence and control during surgery. The clearly visible X-scale on the back and front of the arc allows for a smooth setting and use of the X-coordinate during surgical procedures. Vernier scales are added in the new arc design and arc supports, enabling the setting of target coordinates at decimal digits.

During procedures, the new design—placing all X-, Y- and Z-scales sterile outside of draping—enables smooth coordinate changes, allowing uncompromised accuracy in daily clinical practice.

Range of benefits

Clinician control

The Leksell Vantage Stereotactic System is designed to meet the most exacting demands of today’s clinicians, enabling a smooth workflow and offering a broad range of benefits.

Intuitive and user-friendly
Integrating proven and trusted Leksell principles with intuitive setup and operation make the system easy to use.

Greater overall control
Reduced artifact and distortion in stereotactic images together with workflow enhancements support clinician confidence.

Shorter treatment times
Easy setup and operation mean MR imaging can be done in a shorter time frame.

Treatment planning
Metal-free design enables MR-safe imaging so clinicians can see more clinically relevant anatomy and vasculature during treatment planning.
Reduced time
Fewer pieces enable shorter assembly times and reduced risk of losing parts during cleaning and sterilization. Non-metallic properties support reduced MR imaging time.
Click-on arc
The well-engineered and fast arc docking system is efficient and reduces the risk of human-induced forces applied to the arc.
Flexibility
The frame is suitable for smaller neuro head coils, allowing clinicians additional flexibility.
 
Open-face design
Patient facial expressions are continuously visible and airways are accessible should intubation be required.
Easily visible X-scale
Clearly visible on the back and front of the arc, setting and use of the X-coordinate during surgical procedures is easy, offering control and confidence.
Less distortion
A higher signal-to-noise ratio means less distortion in the MRI.
No sterilization needed outside of draping
In the operating room, the sterile interface is secured by the draping and the disposable pins are delivered sterile.
 

In addition, the setting of the X-, Y- and Z-scales is done outside of the draping—enabling smooth coordinate changes during procedures.

Patient comfort

The new Leksell Vantage Stereotactic System was designed keeping the needs and treatment experience of the patient in mind, providing fast and patient-friendly immobilization.

Doctor and patient
Setup
Easy mounting of the frame on the patient’s head supports a positive patient experience.
Treatment time
Fewer frame components with easier assembly and disassembly support shorter overall treatment times.
 
Comfort
New smaller adapters support patient comfort.
Reassurance
The open-face design exposes the patient’s eyes, nose and mouth for unrestricted visibility and access.

Compatibility supports seamless integration

Leksell Vantage Stereotactic System is fully compatible with Elekta neurosurgical instruments.

Compatibility enables a seamless transition to the new Leksell Vantage System, allowing clinicians to easily use both systems. The Leksell Stereotactic System remains the leading minimally invasive neurosurgery stereotactic system and is well-suited for numerous Elekta neurosurgical tools.
