Launch of LiVac Retractor in US gives surgeons a new, minimally invasive option for robotic and laparaoscopc bariatric procedures
Livac USA, Inc. announced today that its LiVac Retractor is now being used by surgeons in the United States. The LiVac Retractor, which has received FDA approval for use as a solid organ retractor in the United States, is a gentle, non-metal retractor that simplifies robotic and laparoscopic procedures and saves time for physicians, while improving the recovery process and reducing the reliance on opioids for patients.
The LiVac Retractor reduces trauma to the patient’s organs by using gentle suction to lift the liver out of the surgical field during procedures such as bariatric surgery and gall bladder removal.
