SentreHeart Receives CE Mark for Soft Tissue Closure Device
SentreHeart has received CE Mark approval for its Lariat surgical left atrial appendage suture delivery device.
The device, designed for soft tissue closure, enables surgeons to offer user-controlled delivery of a 50 mm pre-tied suture loop through traditional open surgical procedures, or through an access port as small as 5 mm, according to the Redwood City, Calif.-based company.
The surgeon can guide the snare loop over soft tissue, confirm its exact closure location and deploy the pre-tied suture. The result is complete ligation with no metal or clip left behind.
The device is not available for sale in the U.S. — Michael Cipriano
