5 and 7 French Peel-Away Sheath Kits
The 5 and 7 French Peel-Away Sheath Kits allow the user to insert 5F or 7F devices to a pre-confirmed target in a single pass.
“I’ve used the new Peel-Away Sheath to help guide a laser catheter and am very happy that we now have this extra degree of confidence that catheter placement will be just as accurate as DBS placement. It’s especially helpful if a hippocampal trajectory requires going through the ventricle.”

“This new larger Stylet and Sheath Delivery System is very helpful for those cases where you’re worried about deflection, traversing near ventricles, or facing a steep trajectory. The stiffness provides a lot of confidence, and it is reassuring knowing that you don’t give up your track once you get to target. It’s just one pass.”

MRI-Guided Stereotactic Laser Corpus Callosotomy for Epilepsy: Distinct Methods and Outcomes
This is the largest reported series of SLCC for epilepsy to date. SLCC provides seizure outcomes comparable to open surgery outcomes reported in the literature. Direct MRI guidance is more accurate, which has the potential to reduce the risks of SLCC. Methodological advancements and larger studies are needed.
