Speakers: Albert Huang MD, Chief Medical Officer at Northgate Technologies Inc
Acquisition to NTI & what is NTI
Introduction of StimSite
What is StimSite- ureter electrostimulation device that triggers on-demand peristalsis, FDA Safer Technologies receipient
Clinical need seen from Albert- Avoid ureter injury, expedite surgical time, medical legal documentation
StimSite enhances your existing instruments
Confirmation of structure is the ureter with on-demand peristalsis through existing bipolar instruments via foot pedal
Maintain full awareness of ureter location throughout the care by inducing spontaneous ureter peristalsis.
Reduce waiting and uncertainty in cystscopy times (time to urine jets) via increased frequency of spontaneous peristalsis
Document in operative report that StimSite was used intraoperatively to confirm ureter location and identity.
Why is documentation so important?
How can this impact the AAGL community?
