The Resolution 360 Clip is intended for placement within the GI tract for the endoscopic marking and hemostasis during treatment of mucosal and sub-mucosal defects such as peptic ulcers, polyps, and diverticulosis of the colon. The pre-loaded, radiopaque, single-use clip consists of stainless steel capsule and clip arms, a chrome-cobalt yoke, and a styrene tension breaker.

The symphonX Surgical Platform enables surgeons to manipulate two laparoscopic instruments at the same time, using controls outside of the body that accurately triangulate the instruments. The design closely mimics traditional laparoscopic equipment, so that the surgeon feels as if he is operating two different tools, each in their own trocar, in a more ergonomic fashion and with fewer complications. Additional benefits include lower usage of analgesics and fewer readmissions for hernias and incision-site infections.  MORE

Among patients undergoing incisional hernia repair, the use of mesh to reinforce the repair was associated with a lower risk of hernia recurrence over 5 years compared with when mesh was not used, although with long-term follow-up, the benefits attributable to mesh were offset in part by mesh-related complications, according to a study published online by JAMA. The study is being released to coincide with its presentation at the American College of Surgeons Clinical Congress 2016.  MORE
