Action 1. Refer to the appendix for the list of Brainlab Curve or Kick Navigation Systems with an affected camera installed to determine if your navigation system is affected. 2. For Cranial or ENT navigation software in combination with an affected system camera installed: Do not use the Z-touch Laser Pointer for patient registration. Use other instruments with the standard instrument pivoting method for Surface Matching or Landmark Registration, or Automatic Image Registration (AIR) if available. 3. Please continue to follow the instructions and warnings as described in the user guide. Especially relevant is the following warning, in addition to the instructions on the registration verification page appearing in the Cranial or ENT software: Verify accuracy at multiple anatomical landmarks, especially in the region of interest, as it may differ from the accuracy verified on the skin surface. If the region of interest is not accessible, verify in areas as close as possible to the region of interest. 4. In order to avoid nuisance with Spine & Trauma 3D or Orthopedic Navigation software in combination with an affected system camera installed: Do not attempt to use the optional Disposable Clip-On Remote Control. For patient registration, acquire registration points with the standard instrument pivoting method; or for Spine & Trauma 3D use Automatic Image Registration (AIR) if available.
