  • Staple Usage Comparison Between Suction Calibration System and Rubber Bougie in LSG

    Elizabeth Dovec, MD, Medical Director, GBMC Comprehensive Obesity Management Program

    Data suggests a savings of 0.33 staple load per laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) procedure after switching to a suction calibration system (SCS). That translates to saving a staple approximately every third case. With bariatric staple loads costing upwards of over $400 per staple, this could mean significant savings for institutions that implement a SCS in their LSG procedures.

  • Evaluation of Safety and Effectiveness of a Novel Suction Calibration System vs. Bougie in LSG

    Leonardo Claros, MD, FACS, FASMBS, El Chaar, MD, FACS, FASMBS, Rose Huang, MSBME, George Ezeji, MD, Jill Stoltzfus, Ph.D., St. Luke’s University Health Network

    ViSiGi 3D® is a safe and effective tool for LSG. SCS was shown to reduce each step of a sleeve gastrectomy during LSG, decrease the chance of cross-contamination in a hospital, reduce the likelihood of accidental tube stapling, and decrease the risk of esophageal perforation.

  • OG Tube/Bougie vs. Suction Calibration System During Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy

    Rose Huang, MSBME, Michel Gagner, MD, FRCSC, FACS, FASMBS

    Presented at: 19th World Congress of the International Federation for the Surgery of Obesity and metabolic disorders (IFSO2014)

    ViSiGi 3D® was shown to clearly delineate and indicate the proper
    staple placement, significantly decreases the time needed to complete each step of sleeve gastrectomy, reduces corkscrewing, and may reduce esophageal damage and accidental tube stapling.

  • Reduction of Waste Anesthetic Gases attributable to Membrane Oxygenation during Cardiopulmonary Bypass

    Bradley Thompson, MS, CCP, Appleton Medical Center – Appleton, WI

    Presented at CREF 2013 – 33rd Annual Cardiothoracic Surgery Symposium

    Purpose: To quantitatively evaluate a convenient, commercially available waste anesthetic gas removal system for membrane oxygenation that does not impart excessive suction across the membrane oxygenator or allow for the accumulation of positive pressure in the system. Results: Subsequent badge test resulting in the perfusion work area indicated <0.42ppm residual anesthetic with the scavenger setup in place and operational.
