SurgiQuest Reaches Over 100,000 Procedures Worldwide

AirSeal System used in over 100,000 Minimally Invasive Surgical procedures

MILFORD, Conn., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SurgiQuest, Inc., a leading provider of innovative access technologies for minimally invasive surgery (MIS), today reported that surgeons have successfully used the AirSeal® System in more than 100,000 procedures worldwide.

SurgiQuest's patented AirSeal® Access System optimizes the laparoscopic environment and provides unparalleled stability in the abdominal cavity during MIS.  Unlike conventional insufflation and trocar systems, the Company's breakthrough integrated platform ensures stable pneumoperitoneum, continuously evacuates smoke and plume when energized medical devices such as electro-cautery, laser or ultrasound are used, and provides valve-free access to the abdominal cavity during both robotic and laparoscopic surgical procedures.  Recent clinical data suggests that use of the AirSeal system is associated with less post-operative pain, reduced pain medication use, and improved parameters for both intra-operative ventilation and hemodynamics.

"The AirSeal System has become my standard of care for use in robotic prostatectomy procedures," said Vipul Patel, M.D., the Medical Director of Florida Hospital's Global Robotics Institute and the world's most experienced robotic surgeon. "We are extremely pleased with the clinical benefits that it provides to our patients and with the improved efficiency we have seen in our robotic procedures since deploying the AirSeal System."

"Reliability in surgery is key. When it comes to creating a stable surgical environment, AirSeal truly sets itself apart from other technologies," said Arnold P. Advincula, who is the Vice Chair of Women's Health and Chief of Gynecology at Columbia University Medical Center in New York. "I won't perform a robotic procedure without it."

"We are absolutely thrilled by the tremendous growth in AirSeal adoption in both robotic and laparoscopic surgery across a wide range of surgical specialties," said Kurt Azarbarzin, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of SurgiQuest. "The growing body of clinical evidence for the AirSeal System continues to demonstrate significant advantages for surgeons, anesthesiologists, operating room personnel, and, most importantly, patients."

SurgiQuest grew revenues over 130% in 2013 and is on track to grow by more than 100% in 2014.  SurgiQuest expects to see approximately 115,000 AirSeal procedures performed in 2014 alone.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities."

Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year.
