The Somerville, N.J.-based company said the newly cleared Enseal X1 is an advanced bipolar device designed for use in open procedures, such as colectomies and hysterectomies.
“Ethicon remains committed to addressing the critical needs of patients, ensuring they have access to the most effective treatment through continued innovation and product enhancement. By providing access to leading-edge technology in advanced bipolar energy, we are giving hospitals the ability to work with a single advanced energy provider and surgeons increased choice and the flexibility to meet a diverse set of clinical needs for their patients and procedures,” energy global strategic marketing veep Grace Chung said in a press release.
In August, Ethicon announced a strategic collaborative deal with healthcare tech platform developer Touch Surgery to develop a collaborative simulated surgical training application.
The companies hope to develop a free mobile application that can “reach medical professionals in even remote regions of the world” to improve patient outcomes. The application will bring together Ethicon’s history in surgical procedures and products and Touch Surgery’s tech platform which includes 3D simulations to provide training content for surgeons and students.
Earlier in August, Ethicon said it is launching the Stratafix spiral PDS plus and Stratafix spiral monocryl plus knotless tissue control devices.
The Somerville, N.J.-based company said the addition of the 2 knotless sutures makes its portfolio “the most comprehensive” offering available in the U.S.
