TransEnterix, Inc. (NYSE:TRXC), a medical device company that is digitizing the interface between surgeons and patients to improve minimally invasive surgery, dislcosed the Company received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Senhance™ Ultrasonic System.

“Advanced energy devices are used within a high percentage of cases across a wide range of procedures, which make them a critical tool for laparoscopic surgeons,” said Todd M. Pope, TransEnterix president and CEO. “We believe the addition of the Senhance Ultrasonic System is significant and broadens the attractiveness of the Senhance platform and digital laparoscopy for surgeons in the U.S.”

Advanced energy devices, including ultrasonic devices, represent some of the most versatile and critical tools for surgeons in minimally invasive surgery. These instruments deliver controlled energy to effectively ligate and divide tissue, and minimize thermal injury to surrounding structures. The Company’s Senhance Ultrasonic System is now available in the U.S., as well as all countries that accept a CE Mark.

“The addition of ultrasonic technology is a significant expansion of the Senhance system capability preferred by many surgeons during complex procedures,” said Dr. Steven D. McCarus, MD, FACOG, Chief of Gynecologic Surgery at Florida Hospital Celebration Health. “Combining advanced energy tools with the precision, control, haptics and ergonomics of the Senhance digital interface may allow many surgeons to confidently use this technology across the broadest range of pathology and patients.”

The Senhance System is the first new abdominal robotic surgery platform to receive FDA clearance since 2000, and is the first and only digital laparoscopic surgical platform to offer the security of haptic force feedback that allows surgeons to feel the forces the instruments generate when handling delicate tissue. It is also the first robotic surgical system to offer reusable instruments that help keep per-procedure costs similar to that of traditional laparoscopic surgeries, as well as 3 mm instruments for microlaparoscopic procedures that enable virtually scarless incisions for patients. These advanced technologies exclusive to Senhance were designed to pave the way to the future of robotic surgery by improving the patient and surgeon experience, while helping to lower per-procedure costs and ultimately healthcare costs in general for hospitals and patients.

In the U.S. the Senhance System is cleared for laparoscopic colorectal, gynecological, inguinal hernia and cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal) surgery.
