Asensus Surgical has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its 5-millimeter diameter articulating instruments.

The devices, which previously earned CE mark certification, work on the company’s Senhance Surgical System, a digital laparoscopic platform that uses augmented intelligence and machine learning.

The articulating instruments “offer better access to difficult-to-reach areas of the anatomy” by providing additional degrees of freedom, the company said.
