CoapTech Gains CE Mark for Ultrasound System
Baltimore, Md.-based medical devicemaker CoapTech has received the CE mark for its Puma-G System, for use in ultrasound-assisted gastrostomy procedures.
The Puma system is a minimally invasive device that uses ultrasound for procedures in hollow organs of the body where previously it was impossible or unsafe to do so. It allows bedside clinicians, rather than consultant specialists, to place gastrostomy tubes at the point of care.
CoapTech, which specializes in products for minimally invasive surgery, says the ultrasound gastrostomy procedure is as safe as conventional gastrostomy methods.
