Novadaq's SPY System receives clearance for use in organ transplant surgery
Date:1/17/2008

while outcomes following transplantation have improved over the years, allograft loss is a problem ultimately confronted by many recipients. For such patients, repeat transplantation often provides the best chance for survival and good health. Retransplantation offers hope, but according to previous studies have demonstrated that outcomes following repeat transplantation are in general, inferior to those observed with first transplants. Since every organ used for repeat transplantation represents an opportunity that cannot be directed to another candidate, the potentially expanding role of retransplantation has been of growing concern. Use of the SPY System may allow surgeons to quickly identify areas of inadequate blood perfusion and potentially make immediate technical revisions which ultimately may save the organ, improve outcomes and reduce the overall costs of recovery.

"Organ transplant is a life saving operation and often offers the only hope for patients suffering from organ failure," said Dr. Arun Menawat, President and Chief Executive Officer Novadaq Technologies Inc. "The lack of available donors makes the use of each organ and the success of each transplant critical not only to the patient undergoing the transplant, but for those on the waiting list as well. The use of SPY has been shown to improve the opportunity for technically perfect surgeries which may save the new organ and in turn improve clinical outcomes for patients, prevent life threatening complications, reduce the need for retransplant and overall reduce costs. This new indication for SPY along with previously cleared indications in cardiovascular and plastic and reconstructive surgery gives hospitals a complete solution for performing imaging in the operating room during complex procedures."

According to the United States Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network (OPTN), Transplant surgery has saved more than 300,000 lives. In 2006 there were 28,931 transplants performed i
