'Where Technology Meets Science': Doctors, Medical Students Take Experimental Medtech For A Spin In Pittsburgh's Center For Surgical Arts
Some big-name device-makers – Medtronic, Stryker, Karl Storz, Siemens and more – are donating expensive capital equipment to the Center for Surgical Arts, a modern teaching lab that boasts 21 bays for training residents and fellows in various types of surgery. The companies are doing this to not only nail down future customers, but to test new devices, as well. The Center also includes a Bose test frame that was used to help clear Alphatec Spine's Solus device with US FDA without a clinical trial. "Those can be multimillion-dollar studies. So, to be able to do that, and to have the FDA feel comfortable with that, is kind of a cool capability," says Dr. Donald Whiting, chair of the Allegheny Health Network Neuroscience Institute.

Story and Podcast: Teleflex Medical launched in March a novel portfolio of miniaturized percutaneous surgical instruments that have the same functionality as full-sized laparoscopic instruments, but allow surgeons to access the abdominal cavity using trocar-less entry and much smaller incisions than those required in traditional laparoscopy. Teleflex execs say the technology is a game changer, and the company hopes percutaneous laparoscopy will become the standard of care for the 4 million laparoscopic procedures performed annually in the US.
Medtronic is moving quickly to increase its market share in airway management and respiratory monitoring and is expanding its product portfolio to help hospitals reduce the incidence of respiratory compromise and preventable adverse events. The company recently acquired Aircraft Medical and its video laryngoscopy business, launched its own laryngeal mask product and identified a wide range of potential applications for its fast-growing capnography product line.
