Stryker 1688 AIM

1. Introduction to the 1688 AIM 4K Platform

The 1688 Advanced Imaging Modalities (AIM) 4K platform from Stryker is a sophisticated imaging system tailored for a diverse range of surgical applications. It introduces cutting-edge visualization technologies that illuminate the surgical field with unprecedented clarity and precision, thereby facilitating informed and precise clinical decisions across various specialties.

2. Core Components and Technological Advancements

  • High-Resolution 4K Imaging: The platform boasts a 4K resolution that delivers consistently bright and crystal-clear images, which are crucial for intricate surgical procedures.
  • Connected OR Hub: This feature integrates streaming, capturing, recording, and printing capabilities in 4K quality, offering surgeons total control over the visualization process during operations.
  • PneumoClear Insufflator: A comprehensive insufflation system that manages inflow and outflow with options for heated, humidified, and smoke evacuation through an all-in-one tube set. This system meets ULPA standards for safety and efficiency.
  • VPI (Visual Perfusion Imaging): Enables detailed visual assessments of blood flow, tissue perfusion, and lymphatic systems, enhancing surgical precision and reducing the risk of complications.
  • L11 LED Light Source with AutoLight: Improves light control and reduces maintenance needs by providing consistent lighting that adjusts automatically, ensuring optimal visibility throughout surgical procedures.


3. Enhanced Visualization Technologies

  • SPY Fluorescence Imaging: Utilizes Indocyanine Green (ICG) for fluorescence imaging, enabling surgeons to see beyond the visible spectrum to assess circulation, tumor perfusion, and the detailed structure of blood vessels and lymphatics. This technology has been validated in over 300 clinical studies to enhance visualization and potentially decrease the incidence of complications related to poor perfusion.
  • IRIS (Intraoperative Real-time Imaging System): Specially designed lighted ureteric stents help to mitigate the risk of ureteric injuries during complex surgical procedures, promoting safer and more effective outcomes.

4. Application Across Surgical Specialties

  • General Surgery: Enhances the detection of ureteral and bile duct injuries as well as anastomotic leaks through advanced NIR imaging techniques.
  • Urology: Provides superior resolution that helps in distinguishing anatomical details in environments with poor visibility.
  • Orthopedics: Specifically advantageous in improving lighting and visualization in the posterior compartments of the body, facilitating better fluid management and resection.
  • Gynecology: Improves lighting in deep pelvic surgeries and reduces the risk of ureteral injuries with the use of IRIS.
  • ENT (Ear, Nose, and Throat): Enhances color reproduction and illumination within the cavernous sinus, aiding in more precise surgeries.
  • Colorectal Surgery: Aims to reduce the incidence of ureteral injuries and anastomotic leaks, which are common complications in these procedures.
  • Customized Financing Solutions: Through the Flex Financial program, Stryker offers tailored financing options that accommodate the budgetary constraints of different healthcare facilities, thereby enhancing their long-term financial stability.
  • ProCare Services: Designed to minimize system downtime, improve employee satisfaction, and maximize the performance and longevity of the visualization equipment. These services ensure that medical staff can focus more on patient care rather than equipment issues.

6. Compliance and Availability

  • Regulatory Standards: The products are CE marked, adhering to the necessary EU Regulations and Directives, ensuring safety and reliability.
  • Global Availability: The availability of these systems varies by region, subject to local regulatory and medical practices. Stryker encourages direct communication with their representatives to verify the availability of products in specific markets.

7. Conclusion

The Stryker 1688 AIM 4K platform marks a significant advancement in surgical imaging technology, offering comprehensive solutions that enhance visualization across multiple surgical disciplines. Its integration of 4K imaging, SPY fluorescence, and IRIS technologies substantially elevates the standard of care, providing tools that not only improve surgical outcomes but also promote patient safety through enhanced surgical precision.
