Center Valley, PA (May 16, 2014) – Aesculap, Inc., a leader in surgical technology instruments is pleased to announce its participation at the ASCRS 2014 Annual Meeting from May 17 – 21, 2014.

Visitors to Aesculap’s booth, number 212, will see the company’s latest offerings in seal and cut technology, as well as its innovative advancements in anastomotic leakage treatment.
Increased efficiency with Caiman® Vessel Sealers - Caiman was designed to deliver improved results for the most challenging procedures.
· Tip first closure and hinged jaw design promotes tissue retention and uniform tissue compression for a clean and consistent seal
· Long jaws for heightened procedural efficiency, sealing and cutting up to 4.7cm of tissue at a time
· 80 degrees of articulation for improved maneuverability and access to difficult to reach anatomy
Minimally invasive treatment with Endo-SPONGE™ system - Anastomotic leakage is the most critical complication after lower anterior rectal resection and is the main cause for the high level of patient mortality and morbidity. It can lead to generalized peritonitis, with a severe septic progression.
The exclusive Endo-SPONGE™ system is a new, non-surgical, minimally invasive method for the gentle treatment of anastomotic leakage in the lower rectum that offers:
· Continuous drainage, no build up of secretion
· Rapid cleaning of the wound cavity
· Promotion of granulation
· Reduction of the size of the wound cavity
