Smith & Nephew Endoscopy Expands Line of CLEAR-TRAC(TM) Surgical Cannulas
Date:12/6/2007

ANDOVER, Mass., Dec. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Smith & Nephew's (NYSE: SNN; LSE: SN) Endoscopy Division today announced the launch of a redesigned and expanded family of CLEAR-TRAC Disposable Cannulas, with a new, triple-seal system that reduces fluid leakage and helps surgeons manage sutures during arthroscopic surgery.

Cannulas provide a sterile pathway through which surgeons insert instruments during minimally invasive procedures.

"We have expanded the CLEAR-TRAC cannula family with the introduction of a CLEAR-TRAC Flexible device," said Jonathan Romeo, market manager in Smith & Nephew's Capital business unit. "It features a flexible plastic shaft that provides surgeons with a better feel for changes in tissue density as it is inserted into the body, a feature that surgeons said they sought in a cannula."

The redesigned CLEAR-TRAC COMPLETE and the new CLEAR-TRAC Flexible devices feature a new, patent pending triple-seal system with an integrated suture management system -- specially placed notches in which a surgeon can temporarily segregate and coordinate sutures outside the arthroscopic cavity during procedures.

The new seal system is specifically designed to minimize the leaking and spraying of surgical fluid from the cannula during procedures. Surgeons use sterile solution to distend the joint and create space to maneuver instruments during the repair process. The fluid within the joint is pressurized, to reduce bleeding and to flush away loose bodies or other materials.

"Surgeons who perform arthroscopic procedures expect to get wet, especially later in the surgery, because surgical fluid escapes through the seals when we pass instruments or sutures," said Dr. Marc J. Milia,
