Why use Ultravision™?

The Problem

Maximising performance and safety in laparoscopic surgery requires excellent visual field clarity.

Particulate matter produced by energy-based surgical instruments rapidly accumulates and obscures the visual field making difficult and complex tasks even harder. This “surgical smoke” must be dealt with.

Clearing the surgical smoke by releasing it into the operating room is inefficient, delays the operation and causes loss of pneumoperitoneum. Chronic exposure to surgical smoke may be hazardous to operating room personnel.

Using a surgical smoke evacuator can accelerate this process and minimise staff exposure but it results in a dramatic increase in patient exposure to carbon dioxide (CO2).  This increases the risk of post-surgical adhesion formation, post-surgical pain, cools the patient and complicates anaesthetic control.

Low pressure surgery has been linked to improved patient outcomes by reducing postsurgical pain.  Both venting smoke and smoke evacuation cause unstable pneumoperitoneum, making it harder for the surgeon to operate at low pressure.

The Product

Ultravision™ is transforming how surgeons perform laparoscopic surgery.

Its unique mode of action effortlessly and unobtrusively eliminates surgical smoke particles from the operative visual field without the need for carbon dioxide exchange.

This means fewer pauses during the procedure, less camera cleaning, and no surgical smoke particles released into the operating room. And, because there’s no gas exchange, Ultravision™ is CO2 sparing and facilitates low pressure surgery.

Ultravision is the only technology that meets AORN recommendations to prevent surgical staff smoke inhalation and minimise patient CO2 exposure during laparoscopic surgery.
