Dextera Surgical's MicroCutter 5/80 featured at ISMICS meeting
Dextera Surgical announced that several leading surgeons highlighted the use of Dextera's C-Port Distal and PAS-Port Proximal Anastomosis Systems as well as the MicroCutter 5/80 Stapler in a variety of less invasive surgical procedure presentations at the 14th Annual International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery meeting, held in Rome, Italy. Two oral presentations featured Dextera's automated anastomosis devices as an enabling tool for minimally invasive coronary bypass procedures. An anastomosis is the joining of two vessels together and is critical to a successful coronary bypass procedure. Dextera's cardiac products are the only automated anastomosis products on the market today. On Wednesday, June 7 during the Minimally Invasive Coronary Artery Bypass Graft session, Mahesh K. Ramchandani, M.D., vice chair of cardiovascular surgery at Houston Methodist Hospital, demonstrated the use of the PAS-Port System to facilitate a minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass procedure.
