BOULDER, Colo., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Encision Inc. ("Encision") (ECIA: PK) is pleased to announce an agreement with Virtual Ports Ltd. ("Virtual Ports") for exclusive distribution rights to the Virtual Ports' laparoscopic organ retraction products in the United States. Under the terms of the agreement, Encision will market and sell Virtual Ports' organ retraction products. Encision and Virtual Ports are both innovative companies that develop, manufacture and market medical devices that bring a higher level of performance to laparoscopic surgery. Encision's AEM® Technology eliminates stray energy burns during laparoscopic surgery.

"We are thrilled to expand our product offerings with Virtual Ports' unique products," said Fred Perner , President and CEO of Encision. "We see this relationship as accelerating our efforts to bring true innovation and improved economic outcomes to laparoscopic procedures. Additionally, Micro-Anchoring Technology aligns perfectly with our targeted audience of laparoscopic surgeons."

Dan Shwarzman , CEO of Virtual Ports, notes, "We are extremely pleased to partner with a focused and innovative company such as Encision to sell and distribute our products. This agreement dramatically expands our reach throughout the U.S. and creates an ideal product synergy with Encision's product line. We look forward to a successful collaboration with Encision and are confident that together we can offer surgeons and patients in the U.S. a new performance standard for laparoscopic surgery."

Virtual Ports Products

Virtual Ports products, including the EndoGrab™ and the EndoLift™, are exceptionally small-profile devices that provide secure laparoscopic organ retraction by using Virtual Port's proprietary MicroAnchoring™ Technology. The EndoGrab™ allows surgeons to retract internal organs and to anchor them directly to the endocavity wall. This retraction moves organs outside of the surgeon's critical view, which results in enhanced tissue access without cluttering the laparoscopic workspace, and reduces the number of ports, incisions and personnel required to perform the procedure. The EndoLift™ is designed specifically to internally retract large, soft tissue structures, such as the liver and uterus, from within the abdominal cavity, which eliminates incisions solely dedicated for retraction.
