Ethicon claims Covidien Sonicision Cordless Ultrasonic Dissection Set up is violating a patent issued in 1994 for any vibrating instrument having a blade and clamp to chop and coagulate tissue faster, based on a complaint filed today in federal court in Cincinnati. Ethicon is seeking compensation as well as an order to bar Covidien from selling Sonicision.

Just were built with a surgeon tell me he used the Covidien ultrasonic inside a pig lab and that it had been excellent. Didnt get into many details but said having no wires and no box would be a serious plus. Does anyone know when Covidien ultrasonic will launch or have any more information on it? If it's comparable and wireless, exactly what do we've left within our bag or what are we likely to add to make up for this? I ask because we are already losing marketshare to the new small ligasure and the G2 is nice but their just isn't lots of surgeons doing open cases when you can use it. Tie all of this along with reprocessing also it makes me wonder, how can EES survive without some form of new product? I am not referring to new Harmonic devices either as those are just to offset reprocessing.

Laparoscopic Gastric Plication is performed by laparoscopic surgery. The greater curvature of the stomach is separated from the greater omentum using a harmonic scalpel starting approximately 3-5 cm from the pylorus and ending at the angle of His. As needed, adhesions to the posterior surface of the stomach may be transected. At least two rows stitches will be placed laparoscopically about the greater curvature of the stomach starting at or near the angle of His and ending in the antrum. A calibration tube or endoscope will be used to maintain a lumen during the procedure, ensuring one exists after the procedure.   Read more...

Laparoscopy and da Vinci robotic medical negligence claims are increasing in number because the incidence of the procedure becomes more and much more common. The laparoscope or endoscope is an instrument that resembles a thin telescope which has a fibre-optic light system make it possible for a doctor to determine inside the abdomen. The laparoscope is inserted in to the abdomen through a small incision and co2 gas is then introduced to distend the abdominal cavity make it possible for the contents to be seen. The tools are subsequently inserted into secondary incisions and may be guided by the fibre optic camera that is already in position.   Read more...

Large population-based study with a long and complete follow-up has indicated that cholecystectomy is associated with an increased risk of oesophageal adenocarcinoma. Causality cannot be proven by one study alone, but is supported by the significant association that appeared to increase with longer exposure time, the lack of obvious confounding (by obesity) or detection bias, the findings from previous research, and the likely biological mechanisms.   Read more...
