Cook Medical has launched its new Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery (OHNS) clinical division, kicking off the celebrations with a few new products, including salivary duct access tools, stone extractors, a tissue graft, wire guided balloon, and a biopsy needle.
Here’s a bit from the announcement summarizing the new products:
- Salivary Duct Access Products: Intended to reduce trauma for the patient and reduce the need for open surgery, the tools in this product line help physicians perform minimally invasive sialendoscopy procedures. The devices, which include a wire guide, dilator set, Kolenda introducer sheath and the NGage® and NCircle® salivary stone extractors, help enable physicians to gain access to stones and remove them in the physician’s office without surgery.
- Hercules 3 Stage Esophageal Balloon: The Hercules 3 Stage Esophageal Balloon is designed to treat abnormal narrowing of the digestive tract that can interfere with eating, swallowing and digestion. The device is made with proprietary P.E.T. Flex™ technology, a material that optimally combines the high tensile strength and flexibility necessary for a strong balloon that inflates to three distinct and increasing diameters.
- Chiba EchoTip Biopsy Needle: The high-visibility EchoTip biopsy needle allows physicians to perform thyroid biopsy with a needle that can be easily seen under ultrasound. High visibility results in more accurate needle placement and reduces the number of needle passes needed to obtain a sufficient sample. The Chiba EchoTip biopsy needle design provides enhanced visualization of needle tip when used with ultrasonic imaging equipment to ensure a strong, hyperechoic reflection and clearly visible images.
