Precision-Drive Articulating Surgical System
Only one year after the first operation with Kymerax™ was successfully performed in Europe, Terumo Europe N.V. announced today that the precision-drive articulating surgical system will be featured in a scientific session during the Challenges in Laparoscopy & Robotics congress held June 7 – 9, 2012 in Rome, Italy.
The urological procedure will be performed by Prof. Dr. Günter Janetschek, Director of the Department of Urology and Andrology at Paracelsus Medical University Salzburg, Austria. A laparoscopic radical prostatectomy (LRP) will be performed on Saturday, June 9.
“Kymerax handheld articulating instruments for standard laparoscopy offer 6 degrees of freedom. With Kymerax, the limitations of straight instruments can be overcome,” said Prof. Günter Janetschek. “We have used them in our daily clinical routine for 1 year.”
The Kymerax™ technology, which received CE certification in 2011, features advances in essential instrument components to offer improved efficiency with a comparable safety profile. Kymerax™ enables the surgeon to manipulate motorized handle controls to angulate and roll the instrument tip in multiple directions, facilitating the approach of tissues and organs from various angles.
With its ergonomic design, Kymerax™ could also potentially mean less fatigue and better ergonomic positioning for surgeons. Kymerax™ is suited for laparoscopic procedures in gynecology, urology and gastrointestinal surgery and provides an alternative approach to minimally invasive surgery.
