Invuity has introduced its illuminated breast retractor system at the American College of Surgeons’ 97th Annual Clinical Congress in San Francisco.
Designed specifically for breast mastectomies, lumpectomies, sentinel node biopsies and reconstruction procedures, the system integrates the company’s proprietary Eigr™ (pronounced eye-gr) illumination technology into an optimized retractor to enable surgeons to improve visualization of anatomic structures during these procedures. The system includes a family of different retractors designed for various surgical approaches, including reconstructive surgeries.
Eigr technology utilizes unique optical structures to control light output to a targeted operative space. By directing light from multiple angles and efficiently managing light across a broad output surface, Eigr virtually eliminates shadows, back reflection, glare and thermal effects such as overheating. Invuity’s Eigr breast retractor system is also ergonomically designed so that surgeons have greater comfort and maneuverability.
