Minimally Invasive Surgery
Dr Greenberg reports his thoughts on the Sureglide device and preventing lacerations during cesarean, Überlube and helping women with vaginal dryness and dyspareunia, and TruClear ULTRA Mini tissue removal device for mechanical morcellation.
Can adopting quality measures decrease the cesarean rate? Plus: The Government Accountability Office issues a report on power morcellators and the FDA's system of evaluation. Also, does the volume of one type of heart fat indicate the risk of heart disease?
A small feasibility study of a new containment bag for power morcellation shows that it may be reliable for even a large specimen. The findings, about the Espiner EcoSac 230, were presented at the 45th AAGL Global Congress in Orlando, Florida.
Olympus America Inc announces that the company has received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the company’s next-generation laparoscopic PK Morcellator, a system for laparoscopic tissue containment and extraction.
