The widest range of high quality and specialist single-use suctions that capture the same look, feel, and functionality as the reusable equivalent will be showcased at MEDICA 2016 (Dusseldorf, Germany), the world’s leading trade fair for the medical industry.

Unlike many disposable instruments, Single Use Surgical (Cardiff, United Kingdom) suction products are constructed with stainless steel tubes rather than aluminum ones, a factor that has helped them to become a global leader within the single-use medical devices market. The range of products spans across many surgical specialties, including ear, nose, and throat (ENT), head and neck, gynecology, laparoscopy, general, and vascular procedures.

A new addition to the ENT range is a suction that incorporates a gentle 60-degree bend for improved access during functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS). As with the other disposable sinus suctions in the range, the FESS suction comes with a lightweight, ergonomic handle with or without a control hole, and with a choice of tip styles and sizes. Each suction tip is atraumatic for patient safety, as well as curved for maximum visibility and improved reach in difficult to access areas.

“We are delighted to be coming to MEDICA 2016 to showcase our extensive range of surgical solutions,” said Michael Denver, export manager of Single Use Surgical. “Many of our innovations provide improved ergonomics and functionality, as well as consistent quality and a safe alternative to reusable instruments. Each product is developed to ensure cost savings for hospitals, which means surgeons do not have to compromise on quality.”

FESS is a minimally invasive technique in which sinus air cells and ostia are opened under direct visual monitoring, with the goal of restoring sinus ventilation and normal function. Endoscopes are used for diagnosis and during the procedure, and computed tomography (CT) is used to assess the anatomy and identify diseased areas. The procedure can be performed under general or local anesthesia on an outpatient basis, and patients usually experience minimal discomfort. Suitable candidates suffer recurrent acute or chronic infective sinusitis, and an improvement in symptoms of up to 90% may be expected following the procedure.
