The FDA has cleared General Surgical Innovations' dissector/expander device. The product combines the properties of a balloon dissector and a traditional tissue expander, allowing the surgeon to dissect a space and remotely deploy a tissue expander through the incision in one step. This eliminates the delays caused by the healing process associated with traditional tissue expanders.
