Ethicon, part of Johnson and Johnson, is releasing in the U.S. its new flagship laparoscopic suturing device, the PROXISURE. It features the use of curved needles that come inside of single-use cartridges which slip onto the tip of the main device. The tip itself moves in all kinds of ways, articulating 45° in both directions and rotating 360°, all using mechanical operation. The shaft through which the tip is manipulated works through a 12 mm trocar.

Having a curved tip allows the PROXISURE to work well on flat tissues, the needle naturally extending into the tissue as it spins around the device’s tip.

The device itself, though reusable, has a limited life and has to eventually be replaced. The cartridges come with either Coated VICRYL or ETHIBOND sutures.

Here’s an Ethicon promo video for the PROXISURE:
