Fortimedix FMX314 Surgical Platform Emulates Multi-Port Laparoscopy
The FMX314 surgical system is designed to provide accurate three-dimensional (3D) triangulation of laparoscopic surgical instruments inserted through a multiple-use introducer placed in the abdomen with the aid of a trocar. The controls of each instrument are used separately outside of the body so as to closely mimic traditional laparoscopic equipment; surgeons actually feel as if they are manipulating two different tools, each within their own trocar.

“Closely mimicking conventional, multi-port laparoscopy makes FMX314 easy to use and enables surgeons to perform procedural steps ergonomically, allowing for a comfortable and secure single-port approach,” said Marc van de Graaf, VP of global business development for Fortimedix Surgical. “With its unique sizing and ease-of-use, we believe FMX314 will deliver on the promise of single-port surgery, elevating the standard of care in laparoscopy.”

Teleflex Percuvance Percutaneous Surgical System Makes Laparoscopy Less Invasive
The second-generation Teleflex Percuvance percutaneous surgical system offers a wide variety of instrument configurations, with reusable handles and seven disposable 5 mm interchangeable tool tips. These include graspers, scissors, dissector, electrocautery tools, and the Weck Hem-o-lok polymer ligation clip applier. The system also offers a less invasive percutaneous insertion method into the patient, without the use of an invasive trocar. It also enables surgeons to eliminate one or more additional trocars from their laparoscopic procedures.

“Our second-generation Percuvance system represents a significant advancement in the ongoing and perpetual evolution of minimally invasive surgery, and is demonstrative of Teleflex’s unwavering commitment to innovation,” said John Tushar, president and general manager of Teleflex Surgical. “We are encouraged by surgeons’ enthusiastic response to our percutaneous surgical devices and are optimistic the new Percuvance System will become a new standard of care in laparoscopic surgery.”

Levita Magnetic Platform Expedites Gallbladder Removal
The Levita Magnetic Surgical System is comprised of a magnetic grasper device with a detachable tip and a magnetic controller. The grasper is inserted into the abdominal cavity via a small incision; once the magnetic tip reaches the gallbladder, the surgeon deploys it, attaching it to the body and the fundus of the gallbladder, and removes the grasper. The surgeon then uses the magnetic controller to maneuver and lift the gallbladder via a magnetic field, without damaging the abdominal wall. Once near the opening, the grasper is re-inserted to retrieve the magnetic tip and attached gallbladder.

“We are proud to be the pioneers of magnetic surgery. Having been a minimally invasive surgeon for over 10 years, I understand the complexity my peers face when trying to gain proper access to organs,” said surgeon Alberto Rodriguez-Navarro, MD, founder and CEO of Levita Magnetics. “Our goal at Levita is to equip surgeons with the technology they need to make surgery easier and less invasive, while enabling improved patient outcomes.”
