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.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Consumers increasingly expect their electronic "things" to be connected to smart phones, tablets and the Internet. When that thing happens to be a medical device, the risks and benefits of connectivity must be carefully weighed.

In his session at @ThingsExpo...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
