New Wave Surgical’s flagship product D-H.E.L.P was developed in a medical school dorm room five years ago, and is now being used in over 500 hospitals around the world. It is on track to be used in over 300,000 surgical procedures in 2012. Despite advancements in optics, fogging and laparoscope lens cleaning remain a frustration for surgeons. When scopes are fogged and soiled from body tissue and fluids, the operating room time is extended, increasing procedure cost and patient risks.
