Imagyn Medical Technologies has received FDA 510(k) clearance to market its Pivotal line of articulating instruments for minimally-invasive surgery. The instruments, which include scissors, dissectors, graspers and coagulation instruments, pivot at the tip. This enables surgeons to manoeuvre them more easily through small incisions, therefore allowing access to all areas of the anatomy. The company said that the instruments would be used in operations involving laparoscopic techniques such as minimally invasive cardiac surgery, lung resection and spinal, orthopaedic and plastic surgery procedures.
