Date:9/13/2007

Starion Instruments recognized for its next-generation Tissue Ligating

Shears

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Starion Instruments, a leading surgical device company, has been named a 2007 Innovator of the Year by the Society of Laproendoscopic Surgeons (SLS). The prestigious award recognizes Starion for its newest Tissue Ligating Shears, the TLS3, which uses the Company's innovative seal and divide technology. The award was presented during the 16th SLS Annual Meeting and Endo Expo, September 5th in San Francisco.

"We are pleased to be recognized for the second time by one of the leading organizations representing our customers," said Kirt Kirtland, president and chief executive officer of Starion Instruments. "Starion continues to develop advanced technology to address the breadth of surgical procedures requiring tissue ligation. Our newest innovation, the TLS3, expands the ability for surgeons to seal and divide tissue without using monopolar, bipolar or ultrasonic energy."

The TLS3 uses proprietary tissue welding technology, which focuses thermal energy to simultaneously seal and divide soft tissue, minimizing collateral damage to the adjacent tissue. The TLS3 features improved dissecting and sealing capabilities, a longer more tapered jaw, a newly improved ergonomic handle design and two-speed finger control for greater tissue sealing and dividing precision. Additionally, Starion's TLS3 technology is integrated into a new articulating product currently under development.
