New Partnership Expands Medigus ’ Presence to Orthopedics

Medigus is entering bold new territory thanks in part to a manufacturing and development agreement with A.M. Surgical, an orthopedics company. Omer, Israel -based Medigus has primarily been known for its MUSE technology that performs the Transoral Fundoplication for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). MUSE includes the ScoutCam miniature camera technology, which is at the center of this partnership. “The [ScoutCam] technology can be optimized and used in other ways in addition to being inside MUSE,” Chris Rowland, CEO of Medigus, told MD+DI. “The orthopedic market is interesting because there is a chance to disrupt the existing modality of reusable scopes, whether they are laparoscopes or endoscopes. Think of our miniature camera as putting a set of eyes on the distal tip of a therapeutic tool.” The agreement requires Medigus to develop and manufacture an integrated visualization device based on its micro ScoutCam technology to work with Stratos, the A.M. Surgical product for endoscopic procedures. Under the agreement, Medigus will provide prototypes of the integrated visualization device, followed by production of the first two batches of the integrated visualization device. The total project budget is $780,000, which will be paid based on milestones. The firms said the integrated visualization device may have the long-term potential of offering a higher level of surgical control and visualization during endoscopic carpal tunnel r...

Authors: Sucher BM Abstract Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common nerve compression syndrome that includes symptoms of numbness and tingling in the median nerve distribution. Medical cupping therapy has been used for managing a variety of medical conditions, but, to the author's knowledge, the cupping device has not been directly applied over the carpal tunnel as a form of treatment. This case report involves a 27-year-old woman who presented with symptoms of CTS in the right hand and palpatory restriction over the right carpal canal. Electrodiagnostic testing confirmed mild CTS, and neuromuscular ultrasonograph...

ConclusionThe video demonstrates the feasibility of simultaneous laparoscopic and cystoscopic approach for excision of a bladder endometriotic nodule. Marking the nodule by simultaneous cystoscopy and laparoscopy before excision helps in removing the disease completely and avoiding unnecessary normal bladder wall excision, thus reducing the risk of recurrence and resultant small bladder symptoms.

ConclusionCurettage for miscarriage or undesired pregnancy is not exempt from complications, such as hemorrhage, simple perforation, and infection. Intrauterine fallopian tube incarceration is uncommon but can affect fertility. This diagnosis is important to avoid destruction of the fimbriae and necrosis of the tube and also to reduce the risk of ectopic pregnancy.
