PEAK Surgical Announces Positive Fascia Incision Healing Results From Preclinical Study of PEAK PlasmaBlade(TM) for Gynecologic Surgery
Date:5/7/2009

- Data Presented in Poster Session at American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' 57th Annual Clinical Meeting -

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- PEAK Surgical, Inc., a medical device company that has developed a new tissue dissection system based on a proprietary technology, released results from a preclinical study demonstrating that the use of its PEAK PlasmaBlade(TM) is associated with improved fascia incision healing in an in vivo model compared to the use of traditional electrosurgery. Overall, the PlasmaBlade demonstrated reductions in acute thermal injury depth, healed fascial scar width and inflammatory response with greater healed wound strength.

The study results were presented in a poster session at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' (ACOG) 57th Annual Clinical Meeting in Chicago by lead investigator Dr. Mary T. Jacobson, clinical assistant professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Stanford University School of Medicine.

"The findings of this comparative preclinical study are encouraging because they demonstrated that fascial incisions made with the PlasmaBlade were stronger than the standard of care at one week following surgery - a critical point when abdominal surgery patients are becoming more mobile. We believe this result is the product of the PlasmaBlade being able to cut and coagulate at a much lower temperatures, thus producing significantly less collateral tissue damage than incisions made with traditional electrosurgery. Because collateral tissue damage impedes wound healing, reducing this is important for patients undergoing gynecologic procedures where a faster recovery is desired," said Dr. Jacobson. "The PlasmaBlade is an important new device for surgery because it delivers scalpel-like cutting precision with improved healing characteristics compared to traditional electrosurgery."
