UK minimally invasive surgery specialist Gyrus has licensed its PK technology to Intuitive Surgical for developing new robotic surgical instruments. Under the terms of the agreement, Sunnyvale, California-based Intuitive will market the Endowrist PK dissecting forceps with its da Vinci surgical system, providing users with greater tissue management capabilities during robotically-assisted surgery, said Gyrus. The Reading-based company will receive a licence fee and royalties from sales of the Endowrist from Intuitive as part of the contract.
