Intuitive Surgical received European clearance to market its new da Vinci Xi rotobic assisted surgical system. The new generation of the da Vinci platform features a new overhead tool management system that allows multi-quadrant surgery without having to move the entire system during a procedure. The company reports that single-quadrant surgery will also be simplified.
Additionally, the Xi will help introduce robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery for new applications in thoracic, cardiac, gynecologic, and other areas. The da Vinci Xi received FDA clearance in April of this year and is already available to hospitals for purchase.
Here’s a promo video that Intuitive Surgical released during the initial unveiling of the da Vinci Xi:
