Ethicon Endo-Surgery Studies Presented at DDW Demonstrate Potential of Pure NOTES Surgery With Company's Toolbox
Date:6/3/2009

urgical activities that included dissection, ligation, and specimen retrieval. The study, which is being presented as a poster at DDW, involved porcine models and was conducted by investigators from Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden and Imperial College, London.

"With the introduction of this adaptable minimally-invasive surgical platform, we believe we will be able to further address many of the issues experienced when NOTES or SSL procedures are performed with conventional surgical equipment designed for standard endoscopic or laparoscopic use," said Kenneth Sumner, Ph.D., Vice President, Clinical and Regulatory Affairs, Ethicon Endo-Surgery. "We plan to continue our research to investigate the existing contents of the Ethicon Endo-Surgery Toolbox for natural orifice surgery, as well as develop additional products for inclusion in it that may help fulfill the promise of this approach to minimally invasive surgery."

Another poster presentation entitled "Hybrid Transgastric NOTES Cholecystectomy in a Porcine Model Using a Magnetically Anchored Cautery and Novel Instrumentation," conducted by the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center demonstrated preliminary feasibility for a particularly difficult NOTES procedure, transgastric cholecystectomy. Several devices specifically designed for natural orifice surgery were utilized in the study, including a live video manipulation (LVM) system and magnetically anchoring and guidance system (MAGS). Study investigators specifically cited the retraction abilities of the grasper and improved visibility of the provided by LVM, the latter which greatly reduced the workload on the surgical team.
