Summary: Surgery is difficult and accidents happen. A torn blood vessel, a perforated bowel, a burnt nerve, or a severed ureter can endanger a patient. These accidents most commonly happen during dissection, the surgical process of separating, exposing, or isolating a tissue. There have been huge investments in new technologies for energy dissection in an attempt to reduce these mistakes, creating a multi-billion dollar market. However, surgeons switch to blunt dissection during critical dissections, and, curiously, there has been no new technology developed for blunt dissection in centuries. Instead, surgeons use forceps, sticks, and fingers – their most ancient tools – during blunt dissection. Physcient has created Differential Dissection™, a novel technology for blunt dissection that automatically differentiates tissue types to dissect appropriate tissues while preserving critical tissues. Differential Dissection is faster, easier, and safer. Our single-use Model DD1™ for open surgery is in clinical use and has produced excellent results in over 300 surgeries. Our laparoscopic version, however, will be more important because blunt dissection is extremely difficult with laparoscopic instruments. Our Laparoscopic Differential Dissector is transitioning to manufacture now for FDA 510(k) submission in mid-2019.
