A.M. Surgical, Inc. announced today the launch of the Stratos Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release System. The Stratos Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release System is used for the surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. The Stratos offers a minimally invasive surgical approach to relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and results in a smaller incision, less pain, and a quicker return to work and normal activities when compared to traditional open carpal tunnel release surgery. The new device leverages the A.M. Surgical Clear Cannula, which protects critical anatomy and allows a clear view of the surgical field. The Stratos locks onto any standard four millimeter, 30-degree endoscope, allowing the surgeon to position the cannula within the carpal canal under direct endoscopic visualization. The endoscope can work independently of the Stratos with a simple twist of the device, which allows the cannula to remain static within the carpal canal. A unique “revolver tab” handle enables surgeons to easily select and deploy a scope-mounted blade or scraper. This innovative design reduces surgical instrumentation and offers surgeons a higher level of surgical control and visualization throughout the procedure.
