Surgical planning software developer ImmersiveTouch has garnered U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for its ImmersiveView Surgical Plan (IVSP) virtual reality (VR)-based digital surgery platform.
Designed to aid planning for oral and maxillofacial surgery, IVSP enables surgeons to simulate surgery and print patient-specific 3D surgical splints and guides for the operating room, according to the vendor. Surgeons can plan cases independently with online help from biomedical engineers, yielding time savings for surgical planning of as much as 75%, ImmersiveTouch said.
The platform includes planning services for orthognathic, reconstruction, and temporomandibular joint cases, the company said. IVSP is now available in the U.S.
