PEAK Surgical Announces Positive Results From Preclinical Study of PEAK PlasmaBlade(TM) for Obstetric and Gynecologic Surgery
Date:5/6/2008

- Data Presented in Poster Session at American College of Obstetricians and

Gynecologists' 56th Annual Clinical Meeting -

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- PEAK Surgical, Inc., a medical device company that is developing new tissue dissection systems based on a proprietary technology, released results from a preclinical study demonstrating that its PEAK PlasmaBlade(TM) cut freshly excised human abdominal tissue with little thermal tissue injury compared with traditional electrosurgery. The PEAK PlasmaBlade is a low-temperature tissue dissection tool that uses pulsed plasma energy to create surgical incisions and control bleeding.

The data also showed improved surgical incision wound healing in an in vivo porcine model compared to traditional electrosurgery. The results were presented in a poster session at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' (ACOG) 56th Annual Clinical Meeting in New Orleans by lead investigator Dr. Paul Blumenthal, M.P.H., professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Stanford University School of Medicine.

"The findings of this comparative preclinical study of tissue cutting and healing are encouraging because they demonstrated that cuts made with the PEAK PlasmaBlade produced minimal collateral damage compared with cuts made with currently available electrosurgical instruments," Dr. Blumenthal said. "This is important because collateral tissue damage may impede wound healing, obscure histological analysis, and lead to scarring and infection in surgical patients. New surgical cutting tools that use less heat but offer precise soft-tissue cutting and coagulation with minimal thermal injury could change the way we operate."

The PEAK Surgery System is not yet available in the United States. The company has filed a 510(k) pre-market notification with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to market the system in the United States.
