Stray Energy Burns Become a "Hot Topic" in Recent Publications
Date:3/29/2011

BOULDER, Colo., March 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Encision Inc. (Pink Sheets: ECIA) –- Stray energy burns and laparoscopic safety have become intensive topics of discussion in recent publications, most notably in the Supplement to Outpatient Surgery Magazine (March 2011).  The potential complications from laparoscopic surgery are highlighted in this latest flurry of articles, probably prompted by a recent California case.  The issue focuses on safer abdominal surgery noting the dangers of stray energy burns and concludes with the recent California jury award of $2.2 million to a patient in a personal injury, product liability, defective laparoscopic device case against a competing medical device company (as reported in the Daily Journal, January 7, 2011, Verdicts and Settlements, page 7, Superior Court, San Diego, CA; case number 37-2008-00078376-CU-MM-CTL).

Several other publications took notice of the jury award as well, including Medical Design Briefs, Surgistrategies, EndoNurse and Healthcare Purchasing News. Surgical Products magazine is expected to examine the topic in its upcoming issue.

Encision has developed patented Active Electrode Monitoring® ("AEM") laparoscopic instruments technology to prevent stray energy burns to patients from instrument insulation failure or capacitive coupling during laparoscopic electrosurgery. Encision is the only manufacturer to offer this patient safety feature in its laparoscopic instruments.
