Dextera Surgical Inc. (Nasdaq:DXTR), a company developing and commercializing the MicroCutter 5/80™ stapler, today announced that its MicroCutter 5/80™ was highlighted in three sessions during the 25th European Conference on General Thoracic Surgery (ESTS), held in Innsbruck, Austria May 28-31, 2017

On Monday, May 29, Dr. Marco Nardini presented a video case study entitled “Microlobectomy: A novel video-assisted thoracic surgical (VATS) approach.” The presentation demonstrated the procedure-enabling aspects of the MicroCutter on large and small pulmonary arteries and veins. On Wednesday, May 31, Dr. Joel Dunning presented “VATS: The journey to less invasiveness,” highlighting faster discharge with the Microlobectomy technique, where twenty percent of patients go home one day after surgery and an additional seventeen percent went home on day two. Also on May 31, Mahmoud Ismail, from the Charite University Hospital (Berlin) highlighted the MicroCutter in a session entitled, “VATS: Technology and New Devices.”

“The interest in the MicroCutter 5/80 continues to grow, particularly as it is highlighted by thought-leading surgeons as an important, procedure-enabling surgical stapler,” commented Liam Burns, vice president of worldwide sales and marketing for Dextera Surgical. “The presentations at ESTS showcase the less invasive procedural approaches enabled by MicroCutter as proven in Microlobectomy, and also the excitement for using the device to enable other successful video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) procedures.”
