CooperSurgical launches new Carter-Thomason II Port Closure system

CooperSurgical, a provider of various products for use by women's health care clinicians, has launched a new version of its Carter-Thomason Port Closure system.

The new Carter-Thomason II system featuring an advanced Suture Passer is redesigned with longer, retractable grasping fingers that allow surgeons to deploy over a wider area for easier and safer retrieval of sutures within the abdominal cavity.

In addition, the system incorporates a new Suture Guide which is placed directly through the trocar to assure complete closure including fascia and peritoneum.

CooperSurgical senior vice-president and chief medical officer Robert Auerbach said based on the original Carter-Thomason Port CloseSure system, the company has made significant advancements in design, functionality and safety.

"For health care providers, the Carter-Thomason II is an easy-to-use, intuitive surgical tool that offers precise, safe and repeatable port site closure," Auerbach added.

"For patients, particularly obese patients, the Carter-Thomason II system provides full-thickness closure to prevent port site herniation for this high-risk group."
