Novare Surgical Systems Inc. today announced the privately held company is targeting its newly introduced line of EndoLink(TM) articulating surgical instruments for total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) -- the newest, most advanced approach for removing the cervix and uterus employing minimally invasive "keyhole" surgery. Cleared for marketing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the single-use, hand-held surgical instruments are the first to provide surgeons with six degrees of freedom not available with conventional, rigid instruments for performing laparoscopic procedures -- without the need for computer-aided instruments or robotics.
