Invuity Medtech Company Unveils New Eikon LT Illuminated Retractor System

Invuity, a medical technology company, has unveiled its Eikon LT illuminated retractor that uses the firm's famous "Intelligent Photonics" technology.

A retractor is a surgical equipment by which a surgeon can either separate the edges of a surgical incision or wound. The Intelligent Photonics technology illuminates the working area without being in the way of other tools.

The efficiency of the system was explained at the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress in Chicago. The system expands the existing Eikon platform while integrating design enhancements that further enable surgical precision, efficiency and safety.

The Eikon LT platform addresses key safety priorities for hospitals. The company engineered a proprietary high performance material in response to hospital initiatives focused on ensuring safety during minimally invasive surgeries.

The company in a press release said that this reinforced polymer material is 100% non-conductive, eliminating the risks related to overheating. Eikon LT virtually eliminates the known thermal hazards associated with traditional electrosurgical devices and fiber optics using its non-conductive property coupled with its proprietary thermally cool illumination.

Eikon LT is 40% lighter than traditional retractors. It also helps reduce fatigue and improves efficiency for surgeons operating through deep, dark cavities while using smaller incisions. In addition, it allows surgeons to optimize clinical and cosmetic outcomes in minimally invasive procedures - including Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery.
