Unique Surgical Stapler

Postby Administrator » Tue Nov 08, 2011 11:25 am

Problem: Current surgical staplers are the subject of numerous adverse events
● 8-9,000 adverse events per year in US alone (FDA) ,14.3% suture line separations; 32.1% staples not forming and 30% device failures
● patient outcomes include anastomosis failure, sepsis, repeat surgery and bleeding

Solution: The new developed stapler has been specifically designed to ameliorate the problems with existing staplers, by:
▼ Delivering enough staples to seal graft in one action
▼ Improving stapler shaft design which allows use of the stapler in keyhole surgery, limiting trauma and reducing the likelihood of bleeding
▼ Using �smart� alloys that do not require an opposite force and tighten automatically post insertion, which reduce trauma, bleeding and increase seal strength

Procedures in which the new vascular stapler could be used include:
● coronary artery bypass grafts,
● aortic aneurysm repair,
● heart valve replacement,
● vascular anastomosis

Current Development and Status.
▼ Initially focussed on vascular stapling
▼ Numerous prototypes for various applications being developed
▼ Base versions successfully bench and animal trialled
▼ Sutures, stapler and adhesive market US$2.2 billion p.a. worldwide in 2004 (Frost & Sullivan)

The Company is looking for investment for the final stage of the project. For contact click here.

Vascular surgical stapling instrument allows coronary artery bypass (CABG) and numerous other vascular procedures to be conducted through keyhole surgery.
The device is also able to conduct traditional open-heart stapling procedures in an improved manner.

The features and benefits of the technology are:
Simple low-cost device
Allows multiple staples to be delivered to site simultaneously
Delivers complete seal in single action
Avoids graft trauma and stenosis
Key hole surgery reduces severity of procedure and reduces procedure time
Key hole surgery reduces cost of procedure through simpler surgery, reduced hospital stay & quicker recovery
