AirSeal is designed to stably insufflate the rectum and provide continuous smoke evacuation, the Milford, Conn.-based company said. The system allows surgeons to perform transanal endoscopic surgeries more efficiently and confidently, according to the company.
“The AirSeal platform is a key factor in performing an ideal transanal total mesorectal excision procedure. By achieving a stable pneumorectum and providing optimal smoke evacuation, a meticulous dissection is possible,” Belgian colorectal surgeon Dr. Joep Knol said in a prepared statement.
SurgiQuest develops access technologies for minimally invasive surgery, including endoscopic and laparoscopic surgeries, the company said.
“The AirSeal system has had a significant impact on our ability to perform both transanal minimally invasive surgery and transanal total mesorectal excision procedures. From the first time I used it clinically, I knew this technology would elevate our surgical capabilities, improve patient outcomes, and help reduce procedure time and costs,” colorectal surgeon Dr. Matthew Albert of Orlando’s Florida Hospital said in a press release.
