Suction Cervical Retractor Gets FDA Approval

Suction cervical retractor by Bioceptive, a New Orleans-based firm, won FDA clearance to be introduced to U.S. gynocologists.

The device uses suction to tug at the cervix, allowing various instruments to slip in unlike cervical tenaculum forceps.

"Bioceptive's suction tenaculum is a truly novel gynecologic instrument that permits cervical traction without tissue penetration. This device coupled with Bioceptive's IUD inserter has the potential to revolutionize IUD insertion by dramatically simplifying the process," said David Turok, Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Utah.

The device can be used to perform intrauterine device insertions, endometrial biopsies, as various fertility procedures.

Bioceptive works on its own tools that will naturally work in conjunction with the new retractor to simply procedures and it can work with devices produced by other manufacturers as well.
