MIAMI, Oct. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Slater Endoscopy, LLC, a medical device company that develops and manufactures minimally invasive flexible endoscopic devices, announced today the launch of its ENSIZOR® Endoscopic Scissors with Patented Edge Flex™ Technology to meet the needs of the growing endoscopic surgery market. As the only commercially available single patient use scissors on the market, the ENSIZOR scissors provides surgeons with a one of a kind surgical scissors that finally affords the precise cutting that they expect for a wide array of endoscopic GI procedures, especially bariatric surgeries intended to treat obesity.
The ENSIZOR scissors is the first of a totally new type of scissors. Each of the two blades are comprised of two components assembled together to make a single "blade assembly". Firstly, there is a thicker stiffer piece, the "blade armature" that is part of the devices' mechanism chain also serving as a support/mounting place for a much thinner and highly flexible piece that does the cutting, the "cutting blade".
"With its blunt tipped blades and controlled rotation, the ENSIZOR® scissors gives endoscopic surgeons an important new tool that can ultimately provide the patient with less pain and swifter recovery," said Sergey Kantsevoy, M.D., Director Therapeutic Endoscopy, Mercy Medical Center, Baltimore, MD. "Its extraordinary cutting of sutures and tissues along with the ability to continuously rotate helps us to do resections of mucosal and other types of tissues that would not have been possible with other surgical scissors."
Slater Endoscopy was the first company to develop a truly innovative surgical scissors that substantially changes the basic way common scissors work, and is proud to once again be leading the growth of minimally invasive surgery as Slater's former company Symbiosis did in the 1990's.
"With advances in endoscopic procedures emerging as a leading option to treat obesity and multiple other conditions, we consider the launch of the ENSIZOR scissors to come at a particularly critical time," said Charles Slater, Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Slater Endoscopy, LLC. "The ENSIZOR scissors can be used in a significant number of existing procedures from the management of obtrusive ulcer generating non-absorbable suture tails and free loops, to cutting gastrointestinal tissues as part of the surgical procedure itself. Additionally, reliable scissors are a cornerstone technology in the development of new endoscopic procedures."
