TruDi Navigation

Balloon Sinuplasty is a minimally invasive and effective procedure that helps our patients with chronic sinusitis. Over the past decade, this technique has become a common and useful tool for many Otolaryngologists. It has become more accurate with advancements in technology.

TruDi is a unique navigation platform used by surgeons to map out sinuses in real time. When combined with Acclarent’s Balloon Sinuplasty guidewire system, it allows for the most minimally invasive and accurate technique in the industry.

TruDi is an electromagnetic image-guided navigation system for ear, nose and throat procedures and can be used in paranasal and intranasal surgeries for patients who need to be treated for chronic sinusitis. It uses micro sensor and tracking hardware for a minimally invasive sinus procedure. It facilitates endoscopic sinus surgeries and a 3D navigation-enabled balloon sinuplasty system.

Johnson & Johnson’s Acclarent launched the TruDi system, which was designed for ENT procedures and provide consistent accuracy, a simple workflow, and advanced software functionality. This cutting edge technology uses electromagnetic images that help to make sure sinus surgeries are completed as safely and efficiently as possible. The system works well for in-office procedures that can reduce costs and recovery time.
