The GORE BIO-A Tissue Reinforcement, a synthetic matrix material that encourages tissue generation in soft tissue reinforcement applications, is now available in a new configuration for hiatal hernia repair. The new configuration is custom shaped with a thinner design to provide surgeons a superior solution for the unique challenges faced in hiatal hernia repair.
Ti-Mesh from PFM Medical provides excellent biocompatibility, minimal shrinking and optimal flexibility due to its innovative titanium layer. The outstanding effectiveness of titanized polypropylene in hernia surgery has been demonstrated in more than 175,000 operations worldwide. Ti-mesh is also available as a self forming plug "Tilene® Plug" for use with inguinal hernias.
GORE INFINIT Mesh is a 100 percent monofilament, large-pore knitted surgical mesh constructed entirely of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). The combination of the chemical inertness of the PTFE polymer in a large-pore structure of GORE INFINIT Mesh offers surgeons and their patients advantages over polypropylene and polyester meshes.
The C-QUR Lite Mesh brings soft tissue repair to an innovative new level with Omega 3 absorbable coating technology. The "Omega 3" gel coating uniformly encapsulates the individual polypropylene mesh fibers for improved biocompatability. The O3FA coating and open pores allow for rapid unrestricted tissue incorporation.
BipoJet® bipolar scissors are ideal for open procedures in which cutting and coagulation are required. The scissors simultaneously cut and coagulate in one step, reducing instrument changes and overall operating time. The unique design includes an hard ceramic inlay that maintains a sharp cutting surface by self-sharpening with each use.
The Medline Universal Electrosurgical Pad 9100 Series with the patented 3M Green Safety Ring represents a breakthrough in electrosurgical pad technology. The pad measures just 15 inches square, making it very easy to place. The pad meets the same thermal performance standards as traditional pads that are up to 33 percent larger in conductive surface area.
The RapidVac Smoke Evacuator System is a powerful, efficient device that quietly filters airborne contaminants from the operating room environment. The Smoke Evacuator features an ultra low penetration air (ULPA) filter with 99.9995 percent efficiency at trapping particulate matter as small as 0.
The ERBE VIO®/APC 2 System offers precise dosing of power output, high safety standards and maximum control. The system uses as much power as needed, but as little as possible, every millisecond. Both the CUT and COAG modes "self-adjust" to circuit impedance variables, minimizing thermal insult and reducing charring or sticking.
The DYONICS 5.5-mm BONECUTTER ELECTROBLADE Resector is an all-in-one device for treating one of the most common sources of shoulder pain, subacromial impingement. The resector combines patented technologies to do the work of three separate devices: a mechanical shaver for soft tissue removal, a burr to smooth bone and a radiofrequency (RF) probe to seal blood vessels at the surgery site.
The PEAK® Surgery System has been granted FDA 510(k) clearance for cutting and coagulation of soft tissue during plastic and reconstructive, ENT, gynecologic, orthopedic, arthroscopic, spinal and neurological surgical procedures. The PEAK Surgery System, which received initial FDA clearance for use in general surgery in July 2008, includes the PEAK PlasmaBlade family of disposable surgical cutting and coagulation devices.
This Children's Face Mask was developed in response to the CDC's recommendations to decrease transmission of respiratory infections. The latex-free Face Mask (Model #15150) is child-sized to improve fit and protection for children between the ages of 3 and 12 and has a colorful, fun print to encourage use.
Foresight Imaging recently released version 2.2 of its TIMS DICOM System software. Version 2.2 includes several new features that have been requested by the installed base of TIMS customers, including audio recording and annotation (especially for speech pathology), audio playback, audio recording to CD/DVD, file attachment, editing of saved studies, TIF & JPEG 2000 file import (in addition to the current BMP, AVI, JPG, & PNG), DICOM send lists, study editing improvements and other general workflow enhancements.
The LifeGurney Patient Vigilance System transforms any patient stretcher into an untethered tracking, assessment and alert system for both cardiac and respiratory functions. Like its sister product, the LifeBed, the LifeGurney tracks a patient's heart and respiratory rate, as well as bed exit attempts, and notifies the nursing team immediately if the patient begins to deteriorate.
The De Mayo Universal Distractor is a new, patent-pending device that delivers precise, finite femoral distraction with a completely unobstructed view of the operative site. Reducing procedure time for Unicompartmental, Arthroscopies, ACL and TKA surgeries, the unique distractor eliminates the need for lamina spreaders, the use of a bone hook or manually pulling on the femur at the thigh throughout the surgical procedure.
The Linemaster Aquiline foot switch is designed with a high impact polymeric plastic or stylish zinc cast cover and is built for ease of use and long life. These switches are available in Single, Twin, Triple and Quadruple models and are designed to meet nearly all medical and light duty applications.
