Salient Surgical Technologies launches flexible electronic surgical
27 September 2008
Salient Surgical Technologies, Inc. has introduced the Aquamantys
malleable bipolar sealer with light (MBS). The MBS employs 'Transcollation'
technology that uses radiofrequency energy to seal wounds and
significantly reduce bleeding in hard-to-reach anatomy during
Reducing blood loss improves visualization for the surgeon, can
result in improved clinical outcomes for the patient and may result in
lower costs to the hospital.
The innovation of the MBS is a malleable shaft that allows surgeons
to shape the device to help fit the particular surgical situation. The
shaft also features a lighted tip to improve visibility. The MBS is used
with the same Aquamantys System Generator as the Company’s standard 2.3
and 6.0 Bipolar Sealer devices.
“Our research and development group worked closely with our surgeon
partners to design the MBS for tight surgical situations. We are
delighted to offer this expansion of our product line, and hope it will
be well received by both new and existing customers,” said Joe Army, CEO
of Salient Surgical Technologies. “The MBS represents the first in a
series of new product offerings we have planned for the near future.”
