The Atlas™ Choice Microsurgery Pattie Collection is made for the microneurosurgeon to maximize protection in the most confined operative corridors. These patties are designed to offer exceptional pliability to gently "hug" the brain tissue without compromising visibility. The Atlas™ Choice Microsurgery pattie collection is used for a wide array of microsurgical procedures including posterior fossa surgery, skull base surgery, aneurysm surgery, microvascular decompression surgery, interhemispheric craniotomies, intraventricular surgery, acoustic neuroma surgery, bypass procedures, and more. Atlas™ Choice patties are made in the U.S.A. and are of the highest quality material. All the necessary patties come in one single collection to facilitate operative workflow.
- Telfa patties allow seamless gliding around the brain after dural opening to reach the CSF cisterns. This allows efficient movement around the cerebellum or lobes of the brain to open the cisterns.
- The tapered patties allow dynamic retraction under the shaft of the suction without the obstructive buckling of the edges of the traditional thick square-shaped patties. The combination of unparalleled flexibility, thinness and tapered shape of this class of patties provides the surgeon with great advantages to work within small operative spaces seamlessly. The variety in the shape of these patties assist with different microdissection strategies.
- The regular patties in this collection are made of primarily cotton and therefore are highly absorbent, pliable and effective in dissecting tumors such as meningiomas etc from the surrounding brain. These patties maintain and conform to the dissection planes. The additional bulk of these patties allows more intensive and directed dissection.
