Smith & Nephew’s Endoscopy Division announced the launch of the TRUCLEAR? System, an operative hysteroscopy device, which is now widely available in the United States. In conjunction with the announcement, Smith & Nephew will host a panel discussion about hysteroscopy at this year’s American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) annual meeting, which is being held in Orlando, Fla.
The TRUCLEAR System is a first-of-its kind device that enables a fast and thorough capture and removal of intrauterine polyps and fibroids, and provides healthcare practitioners in obstetrics and gynecology and reproductive health with a uniquely user-friendly technique. The system pairs the visualization capabilities of a hysteroscope with the tissue removal capabilities of a morcellator, allowing healthcare practitioners a quick capture and removal of polyps and fibroids.
Mira Sahney, Director of Gynecology at Smith & Nephew Endoscopy said, The availability of the TRUCLEAR System provides healthcare practitioners a safe and much-needed option for the half a million women in the United States who seek treatment for intrauterine polyps and fibroids. Current treatments pose significant challenges, ranging from using electricity in the uterus to obstructed visibility. With the TRUCLEAR System, clarity is uncompromised and the uterus remains intact, so that practitioners can focus on efficiently and safely treating their patients.
