SilvaSorb harnesses the power of ionic silver, releasing silver at a controlled level for broad spectrum antimicrobial action, without harming tissue cells. The ionic silver is suspended in the SilvaSorb dressing to control its release over a period of up to seven days. It offers antimicrobial protection over a broad spectrum of bacteria and fungi, including MRSA and VRE.
Arglaes® Powder can offer bioburden reduction and fluid management in an easy-to-apply powder format, making it ideal for deep, tunneling and highly exudating wounds. It is easily combined with other dressings to create a system for bioburden control and optimal moist healing environment. The powder sends antimicrobial silver ions into the wound regularly over a period of five days, while the alginate base mixes with wound exudate to form a soft, conforming gel.
The 3M Steri-Strip S Surgical Skin Closure is a non-invasive, adhesive-based wound closure device designed to treat low tension lacerations and surgical incisions painlessly and without the use of needles. Faster and easier to apply than sutures, this skin closure device provides a time-saving option for surgeons and other medical specialists.
Miltex now offers Padgett Instruments by Miltex, a new partnership of two well respected names in surgical instrumentation.

The LapCap is a novel laparoscopic device which allows for safe, simple and predictable blind Veress needle passage. The surgeon simply places the translucent device on the peri-umbilical abdominal wall and attaches standard suction tubing to its vacuum line port. In less than eight seconds a cone of full-thickness abdominal wall is elevated into the LapCap dome, creating a vacuum “safe space” within the base of the dome.
The recent advances in surgical technology and techniques, based in no small part on the continuing development of new and innovative imaging systems, medical devices and case management systems, have greatly improved patient care by reducing procedure and recovery time, as well as increasing patient and staff safety.
The Neurosign® range of multi-channel electromyogram (EMG) nerve monitors help prevent nerve damage during complex surgical procedures by providing surgeons with audible feedback on the location and integrity of nerves. Reduced risk of nerve injury during surgery is an important contribution to improved patient care.
