Fortimedix Surgical has announced the official U.S. launch of its product line extension with symphonX Instruments short. The new product line offers shorter instruments that broaden surgical applicability of the symphonX Surgical Platform, further increasing the ease of use for surgeons during specific surgical procedures.
symphonX is the world’s lowest profile single-port surgery solution for use in minimally invasive abdominal laparoscopic surgery. The symphonX Instruments portfolio includes various products for grasping, mobilizing, dissecting, retracting, cutting, cauterizing, ligating, and suction/irrigation of tissues and vessels. With this line extension, these different types of instruments are available in a short version. Choosing the appropriate symphonX Instruments for a specific surgical procedure, patient anatomy and/or operative site is at the physician’s discretion.
“This product line extension was developed in response to surgeon feedback,” says David Castiglioni, vice president of sales at Fortimedix Surgical. “We have used these shorter instruments during cholecystectomy, inguinal hernia repair and several gynecologic procedures including tubal sterilization and ovarian cyst treatment with positive results, confirming the versatility of the platform across surgical specialties. The launch of symphonX Instruments short signifies a substantial milestone as we continue to execute on our strategy to establish broad based market adoption of symphonX and elevate the standard of care in laparoscopy.”
