Invuity Introduces Advanced Illuminated Surgical Devices for Spinal Procedures
Date:11/2/2011

CHICAGO, Nov. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Invuity, a leading developer of state-of-the-art illuminated surgical technology, today announced that it will introduce a new line of surgical devices that provide surgeons enhanced visibility during spinal surgeries. The products debut at the North American Spine Society's (NASS) annual meeting taking place this week in Chicago. NASS is the leading meeting for spine surgeons.

The instruments integrate Invuity's Eigr™ (pronounced eye-gr) technology, enhancing visualization by bringing illumination inside the incision. The spinal instruments line features the Eigr Saber™, a single-use, low-profile, ergonomic, hand-held illumination device with integrated suction. The Eigr Saber is used for spinal and orthopedic procedures such as cervical and lumbar cases, hip arthroplasty, bone tumor resection and foot and ankle fusions.

Gratch, an orthopedic surgeon practicing in Abington, Pa.  "I believe the technology has helped me be even more precise in my work."

At least 600,000 Americans have back surgery every year. For spinal procedures, surgeons have a critical need for improved visualization, which enables easy identification of anatomical structures. Spine and orthopedic surgeons say that Eigr technology improves their ability to perform surgery by reducing glare, shadows, heat and physical strain caused by traditional surgical lighting equipment such as headlights or overhead lighting.

"As smaller incisions become standard of care in less invasive and minimally invasive surgeries, visibility into a surgical field is an increasing challenge," said Alex Vayser, co-founder and chief technology officer of Invuity.  "Invuity's Eigr technology integrates uniform lighting directly into existing su
