MicroAire Introduces New SlimLine™ ECTR Cannula
Date:2/21/2011

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Feb. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroAire Surgical Instruments announces the launch of its next-generation endoscopic treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome.  MicroAire's new device, called the SlimLine™, is a narrow cannula and blade assembly that allows surgeons to treat carpal tunnel syndrome through a tiny incision in the patient's wrist – thereby avoiding full open-hand surgery through the patient's palm. This type of minimally invasive surgery is called Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release, or ECTR.

MicroAire introduced the new minimally invasive SlimLine™ cannula as a component of its SmartRelease™ ECTR system during the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, held last week in San Diego, California.

"Patients are looking for minimally invasive options for treating carpal tunnel syndrome. They know that knee surgery is performed through tiny incisions, so why not carpal tunnel surgery? Well, with this new, smaller device from MicroAire, more than ever before, endoscopic treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome is a reality for patients in the United States and around the world," said Alan Connor, General Manager of Orthopaedic Specialties at MicroAire.

MicroAire's new SlimLine™ ECTR cannula retains the top-width of its original cannula, but the sides of the new cannula are angled downward and inward to reduce overall volume by 30%.  The angled sides are also designed to keep the median nerve below and away from the blade, which a surgeon elevates through the top of the cannula during the procedure.  The tip of the cannula is prow-shaped, like the front of a ship, and is designed for improved dissection of tenosynovium tissue during the procedure.

Because surgeons who perform ECTR observe the treatment on a video monitor, the new SlimLine™ cannula is also designed to improve the surgeon's field of view by up to 10% compared to MicroAire's
