Aesculap, a subsidiary of B. Braun, has announced it is making available its Caiman line of surgical tools.
The devices feature unique jaw articulation for control and the company’s own algorithm that controls the energy applied to ensure a proper tissue 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.
Caiman is currently available in 12 mm diameter versions for laparoscopic and open procedures, with lengths of 44 cm and 24 cm.
