Spotlight on Perfusion Webinar




Please provide the following information to listen to the webinar:



Listen to the webinar, Spotlight on Perfusion: New Technology and Data, to explore new technology, data and surgical techniques that support perfusion.
Live event took place on April 26, 2016.

Adequate perfusion is a key factor for tissue healing1. New technology is now helping surgeons measure perfusion and has revealed important data related to tissue repair and accelerated healing. And, a new study demonstrates stapling technology that offers graduated compression can provide better perfusion into the staple line2.

Please join us for this live event, presented by two surgeons and the co-founder of ImageIQ (formerly Cleveland Clinic's Biomedical Imaging and Analysis Center), to explore new technology, data and surgical techniques that support perfusion.

Topics will include:

  • Surgical techniques for measuring perfusion
  • Applications for fluorescence angiography, offered by NOVADAQ Pinpoint, in bariatric and colorectal surgery
  • Results of Perfusion Assessment in Laparoscopic Left (Sided) Anterior Resection (PILLAR) multi-center trial
  • New data comparing two types of stapling technology and impact on perfusion into the staple line2
