We have developed a unique patented device that facilitates suturing during robotic surgery procedures. Our technology is designed to improve surgical efficiency, autonomy and safety.
The Solution for Suture-Intensive
Each used needle is placed safely into the StitchKit “sharps container” during the case. This clear chamber allows for any needle counts during the case and for safe retrieval of needles when StitchKit is removed at the end of the case.
There is no need for the bedside assistant to pass individual sutures and retrieve used needles, because StitchKit contains all sutures and a needle receptacle (aka “sharps container”).
StitchKit use makes picking the case easier for the scrub tech and facilitates faster suturing for the surgeon. It also allows for a smaller assistant port that should never require fascial closure.
StitchKit® is a sterile, single-use canister that contains six strands of PTFE suture with attached needles. It is indicated for use in all types of soft tissue approximation, including gynecologic, cardiovascular and general surgery.
The canister is designed to be easily inserted and withdrawn from the surgical field through a ≥ 12mm trocar cannula. The six sutures are stored in a suture holding compartment within the canister to allow for fast and easy removal of each individual strand.
