Aesculap, Inc. Enters Advanced Energy Arena with Ground-Breaking Technology:
Caiman® Articulating Seal & Cut Devices
Center Valley, PA (April 16, 2012) – Aesculap, Inc. is pleased to announce the availability of its Caiman devices. As the only devices on the market capable of jaw articulation, its innovative energy algorithm and proprietary jaw design supports Caiman’s One Seal Confidence™ - delivering a clean and consistent seal.
Compression is an essential aspect of creating the best seal possible. For a variety of tissue thicknesses, the proprietary hinged jaw provides best-in-class pressure distribution across the surface of the tissue, resulting in a clean and consistent seal. The Caiman devices enhance surgeon control, delivering optimized results for complex procedures.
Due to the device’s unique capabilities, Caiman instruments offer benefits in a number of surgical procedures in the areas of general surgery for bariatric and colorectal, gynecology, and urology specialties. “Caiman makes surgery faster. I cut down the length of my procedure significantly by implementing this device,” stated Carlos Galvani, MD, Director of Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery at the University of Arizona Medical Center.
The devices were recently showcased at the Strategic Laparoscopy for Improved Cosmesis Summit in Miami, Florida. “Surgeons performing single incision surgery are attracted to the technology due to their need for enhanced maneuverability at the surgical site,” said Jaime Escarpeta, Aesculap, Inc. Product Manager.
Caiman is currently available in 12 mm diameter versions for laparoscopic and open procedures, with lengths of 44 cm and 24 cm. This is the foundation of a broad portfolio that is planned for release in stages over the next 12 months. Visit www.caimansurgery.com to learn more about these revolutionary devices.
