Symposia sponsored by Intuitive Surgical on Nov 7-12 - Page 69 of the 41st AAGL Program
Using a robotic vessel sealing instrument to improve efficiencies.
The objective of this interactive program is to deepen the participant's understanding of the role of robotics in gynecologic surgery. Didactic sessions with video clips will be used to demonstrate how new robotic technologies can be employed to identify hidden or difficult to see pathology, to reduce the number of incision during a case to improve patient cosmesis, and to improve efficiency through the use of a SEAL AND CUT instrument. Faculty will discuss their own results and will instruct the audience on how to emulate their techniques.
wise - I can't always follow all the players in Bovie's world - but from what you say, this is a advertisement/article in the show's program in Vegas that Bovie is attending a in couple weeks with the SEAL AND CUT toll - any reason why is there no mention of the Bovie name connected to the SEAL AND CUT instrument ?
Ward, this is something that I stumbled upon going through the AAGL program. I do not know if the SEAL AND CUT instrument is Bovie's IP or not. Judging by the J-Plasma video, I think it\s possible that it is. Purely speculation though. You'd know better than I.
