Minimally Invasive Devices
Robotic FloShield, is a new standard in
maintaining unparalleled visual clarity
during laparoscopic surgery. FloShield
proactively protects the laparoscope
from condensation, debris and smoke.
It is a sheath-based system that fits over
• If there is an abrupt loss of vision due to bleeding or rapid
the DaVinci laparoscope. According to
FloShield, the device's unique design
virtually eliminates the need to remove
the laparoscope for cleaning, minimizing
surgical interruptions and saving OR
time. Features include:
• CO2 is diverted from the surgical insufflatorto
the tip of the laparoscope, creating a barrier of dry gas
over the lens that shields it from condensation, smoke
and debris keeping the lens consistently clear.
accumulation of debris, Flo-X in situ can be utilized.
• Flo-x in situ is the first biocompatible, alcohol-free
surfactant that flushes the lens intraoperatively without
having to remove the laparoscope from the patient.
• Proactively prevents the scope from becoming dirty.
• Provides time sensitive, controlled vision recovery after
an abrupt loss of vision in situ. For more information,
Bovie’s J-Plasma Helium-Based
J-Plasma is a transformational, helium-based,
gas plasma technology that offers remarkablylowthermal
spread, a high level of precision with versatility across multiple
surgical specialties. Other features include:
• Produces an extremely low injury risk to surrounding tissue from
the minimized thermal spread, less smoke and no conductive currents
through the patient
• Reduced costs per case, streamlined inventory, fewer staffing requirements,
improved patient outcomes, reduced procedural time, and minimal capi-
tal investment. For more information, visit www.boviemedical.com.
Encision’s AEM EndoShield
Burn Protection System
According to Encision, their new AEM EndoShield
Burn Protection System provides advanced AEM mono-
polar energy with guaranteed elimination of stray energy
burns to patients. Every 90 minutes in the United States,
a patient is severely injured from a stray energy burn
acquired during laparoscopic surgery. These completely
preventable burns kill 1-2 people per day. Encision’s
advanced AEM monopolar energy elimi-
nates these burns, which are often
caused by insulation failure and
capacitive coupling. Encision feels
that the AEM EndoShield Burn
Protection System is the only way
to deliver monopolar energy with
guaranteed elimination of stray
energy burns. For more information,
