Siemens integrates Trumpf’s OR table in its Artis angiography
27 October 2009
Siemens Healthcare has integrated the TruSystem7500 operating
table from Trumpf with the C-arm systems Artis zee ceiling and Artis
zeego. This makes Siemens the first supplier able to deliver angiography
systems with an integrated OR table.
Integrated means that the movements of the C-arm and the operating
table are co-ordinated
with each other and thus also allow quick rotations of the C-arm and 3-D
imaging. The TruSystem 7500 is the solution particularly preferred by
many orthopaedic surgeons and neurosurgeons.
The Trumpf OR table has been designed especially for this integration
and is equipped with a one-piece carbon tabletop, which can be replaced
by a segmented universal tabletop. The table column
enables the two tops to be exchanged easily.
The carbon tabletop is transparent to X-rays and thus ensures that
there will be no disruptive artifacts in the images. It is suitable for
interventional procedures and minimally invasive surgery.
The integration of the OR table with the Siemens angiography systems
also make fast rotations and 3-D imaging possible with the surgical
The modular design of the segmented tabletop enables extremely
flexible positioning of the patient, particularly important in
orthopedics and neuro surgery. Complicated positions, such as thechest
side position, can be achieved quickly with great precision as well as
comfort for the patient and staff.
Along with the integrated Trumpf OR table, Siemens continues to offer
its Artis tables for the entire Artis zee series, which are available in
three designs: as a standard table, a table with Trendelenburg tilting
and one with Trendelenburg and lateral tilting. The Artis tables have
proven especially useful for cardiac and vascular interventions due to
their free floating carbon tabletop as well as their long overhang and
