IN PRACTICE documents are developed in close cooperation with experts within their field and contain interesting background knowledge on Söring products and technologies. A major characteristic of all IN PRACTICE documents are clear illustrations and valuable recommendations for the use of Söring products.

IN PRACTICE: Ultrasonic fragmentation

In these IN PRACTICE it is explained in detail how ultrasonic fragmentation in neuro and liver surgery works.  

  • role of cavitation in ultrasonic dissection
  • illustration on sonotrode functionality and background knowledge on how aspiration, irrigation and ultrasound amplitude affect the tissue effect

IN PRACTICE: Achieving optimal tissue effects

For efficient tissue fragmentation, the mechanical properties of the pathologically altered tissue or – in case of livery surgery -  the physiological liver tissue must be considered while setting the amplitude (ultrasound setting), aspiration and irrigation parameters on the ultrasonic generator. These IN PRACTICE give up-to date scientific information and recommendations.

  • Classifications of tissue types in neuro and liver surgery
  • Interaction of different settings, tissue types and dissection effects
  • Setting combinations for different tissue classifications

IN PRACTICE: Cervical decompression

Surgical procedures on the spine are routine operations and yet due to the proximity of important sensitive neurovascular structures, they are always very challenging. This IN PRACTICE illustrates how the Söring bone instrument can be used in spinal interventions, how it works and what the differences are to traditional techniques.

IN PRACTICE: Ultrasonic aspiration combined with IONM – tumor resection near a functional white matter tract

The resection of intrinsic brain tumors is a common procedure in neurosurgery. When the tumor is located near or within highly functional cerebral regions, electrophysiological mapping and monitoring of these regions becomes crucial to minimize the risk of postoperative neurological deficits. This INP RACTICE shows:

  • Why exactly dynamic continuous mapping is useful
  • The comparison between "dynamic mapping" and "dynamic continuous mapping
  • Tips and tricks for the correct application and what needs to be considered
