Plasma Surgical Proudly Supports 2015 SAGES Annual Meeting with Presented Abstracts by Thought Leaders

Presentations Highlight the PlasmaJet’s Atraumatic Approach to Surgery
Roswell, Georgia – April 15, 2015, – Plasma Surgical, creator of the PlasmaJet® Surgery System, an advanced energy-based medical device designed as a safe and effective alternative to traditional electrosurgery and other instruments, is pleased to recognize Professor Horace Roman’s presentations at the 2015 SAGES Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
Professor Roman’s 5 abstracts showcase the beneficial properties of PlasmaJet, namely the ability to kinetically dissect around sensitive structures, and remove disease on critical structures like the bowel. In addition to Professor Roman’s abstracts, the Company’s PlasmaJet Surgery System with ‘no-touch and atraumatic’ features is being introduced to surgeons as part of the Emerging Technology Session.
Professor Roman will be presenting the following abstracts during SAGES:

“Being able to present my work at this year’s SAGES Meeting is an honor and privilege,” said Professor Horace Roman, Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at Rouen University Hospital, France. “I have been sharing my successes with European colleagues and discussing this data in a new forum is exciting. Technology is beneficial only when the results match the intended use and PlasmaJet is definitely meeting my needs.”
As part of the Emerging Technology Session, S. P. Walsh, PhD, N. Suslov, PhD, B. Tippet, MD and A. MacLean, MD will present: PlasmaJet Surgery System – High Energy Jet with Unique Tissue Effects. The presentation discusses the efficacy of a precisely controlled jet of thermal plasma for tissue dissection, vaporization, and surface coagulation and highlights the use of the PlasmaJet in more than 12,000 clinical cases.
“We are honored to be part of many clinical conversations at this year’s SAGES Meeting where attendees can learn more about the merits and successes of the PlasmaJet Surgery System,” stated Alexandra MacLean, MD, Vice President of Market Development at Plasma Surgical. “As surgeons, we are committed to doing the best for our patients and the journey begins with presenting data and experiences that demonstrate how this technology is impacting clinical outcomes.”
