Malosa & ZEISS host microvascular surgical skills workshop at ESPRAS
Delegates at the ESPRAS scientific summer meeting in Edinburgh were able to hone their microvascular technique at a live demonstration hosted by Malosa Medical and ZEISS.
The demonstration area gave delegates the opportunity to perform microvascular surgery on pig carotid arteries, recreating end-to-end anastomosis of vessels using in vitro vascular tissues.
Malosa were at ESPRAS to launch their new range of single-use stainless steel microvascular instruments. Developed in close collaboration with Glasgow’s Canniesburn unit, the range includes needle-holders, forceps, scissors and vessel dilators.
ZEISS provided surgical microscope workstations at the demonstration booth featuring a ZEISS Foldable tube with PROMAG. Additionally ZEISS presented their brand new 3D visualization system, giving a completely new immersive experience of documenting and watching surgery in 3D.
