Another great day of presentations. Four hours of wothwhile listening. The presentaion on endometriosis was really outstanding. To think there are hundreds of thousands of women out there suffering a painful life day in and day out because the surgeons shy away from doing surgery and instead put these women on a lifetime of pain killing drugs. Pinpoint will change this scenario.
It is becoming increasingly evident that Luna is going to be huge.
The story here just keeps getting better and better.
Yes, the doctor presenting on endometriosis was very good. He basically said the results had not yet benn fully validated by stage 3 studies but that the benefits were so self evident that he and others were not bothering to wait. He also shed some light on why standard lap had not gained more market share before robotic despite the fact that it had been around for many years and had come to dominate other procedures such as gall bladder surgery. He attributed this to their fear of damaging the ureter or bladder and the fact that most were not qualified to repair them if they did cause damage. They would have to call in a urologist. Pinpoint enhanced delineation of these structures should make more possible via standard lap.
