MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Nasdaq: HOLX) announced today the U.S. launch of its new Fluent™ fluid management system, featuring innovations designed to provide operating room (OR) staff more simplified and effective fluid management for hysteroscopic procedures.
"Fluid management plays a vital role in gynecological procedures, yet there have been few advances in the technology," said Edward Evantash, M.D., Medical Director and Vice President of Global Medical Affairs, Hologic. "The Fluent system is changing the game in fluid management. Developed in response to the challenges facing nurses and doctors performing hysteroscopies, it combines a streamlined design with innovative technology for more efficient fluid monitoring during procedures."
To simplify hysteroscopic operations, the Fluent system features a single waste bag design and unique FloPak™ technology to effectively control fluid use throughout the procedure. An intuitive user interface provides step-by-step instructions for setup, disassembly and troubleshooting, and ultimately helps optimize OR workflow. In addition, large visual and audible alerts monitor fluid deficit, pressure, low fluid bags, and full waste bags to help keep procedures moving as efficiently as possible. The Fluent system experiences a change in average intrauterine pressure of less than 1% when running the MyoSure® system. It also has the ability to detect accurate fluid deficit within +/- 50 mL, allowing OR staff to perform hysteroscopic procedures with increased clinical confidence.
"We developed the Fluent system with a deep understanding of the hectic workflow that often characterizes the patient and staff experience," said Sean Daugherty, President of GYN Surgical Solutions, Hologic. "This launch is a testament to how our strong customer partnerships and unique technological innovations enable us to provide healthcare professionals the advanced equipment they need to improve lives."
The Fluent system helps optimize and streamline hysteroscopic workflow in combination with a wide variety of hysteroscopic devices. Equipped with an integrated MyoSure controller, the Fluent system can be an all-in-one fluid management and tissue removal system. It is designed with fluid and vacuum systems that maximize the performance of the MyoSure system.
Hologic's MyoSure suite of products includes the MyoSure REACH, MyoSure XL, MyoSure LITE, and MyoSure MANUAL devices for tissue removal in a wide range of sizes and locations. To learn more about the MyoSure suite of products, visit www.MyoSure.com.
