News Release - January 2, 2009
EZ Surgical Receives FDA 510k Clearance for Surgical DevicesHewlett, New York, January 2, 2009 - (HSMN NewsFeed) - EZ Surgical has received FDA 510k Clearance for its A-Lap Set(TM), A-Lap retractor(TM), and EZaxess(TM). The “set” is made up of an innovative 5mm retraction/displacement device with multiple degrees of freedom and expansion, including a dedicated flexible port for optional use. “Our due diligence uncovered a need spanning multiple disciplines, including but not limited to laparoscopic, bariatric, hepatobiliary, thoracic and general surgery for a versatile 5mm device that can retract, displace, maintain present position as well as other functions”, according to Noah Gordon, VP of Sales and Marketing. It’s like having the benefit of a hand at the operative site delivered endoscopically. We have responded with a simple and versatile device for surgeons which we intend to demonstrate as an incremental improvement in patient safety in the operating room, just as was done with our DASH(TM) products, added Mr. Gordon.
