Innovia Enters the Single Incision Laparoscopy Market With the InnoPort™
Date:1/25/2011

MIAMI, Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovia LLC, a privately held medical device company, announced today that the InnoPort™ is now available for sale in the United States.  

The InnoPort facilitates performing laparoscopic surgery through one incision, instead of multiple incisions, with the goal of minimizing pain, scarring, and recovery time for patients.  The device's simple, cone-shape design grants physicians unrestricted access to the abdominal cavity with up to three rigid, curved, and/or articulating 5mm instruments.  The design also enables physicians to place, use, and remove the device with minimal effort and low risk of complication.  Two ancillary ports permit insufflation and smoke exhaustion throughout the procedure.  

"In the time-sensitive and no-nonsense environment of the OR, the bell-and-whistle features of existing ports were overly complicated and tended to slow down my procedures.  I needed a device that was simple to place and reliable, and this was the inspiration for the InnoPort," said David Edelman, MD, General Surgeon and inventor of the device. "Compared to other available single access ports, the InnoPort is the easiest to use.  The device can be inserted and removed quickly, and its flexibility allows me to manipulate my instruments to extreme angulations without crowding one another in the working space, all while maintaining a tight insufflation seal.  I'm excited to start using the device regularly."  

"Our intention was to provide surgeons with a simple, effective, and inexpensive alternative to access ports that are on the market today, with enhanced functionality," adds Leonard Pinchuk, Ph.D., D.Sc., President/CEO of Innovia.  "We are confident that our goals have been met with the InnoPort."

The InnoPort is available for sale through select distributors.  Planned product line extensions will accommodate additional instrument sizes for use in general, gynecological, urologic, gastrointestinal, bariatric, and pediatric laparoscopic procedures.  For purchasing information, please contact Innovia.
