Hologic has secured the European CE-Mark for its MyoSure MANUAL device, which is designed to facilitate simple tissue removal procedures in any kind of setting.

MyoSure MANUAL features a fully integrated vacuum that does not require external suction, along with a 1lt saline bag, eliminating the requirement for a controller or additional fluid management equipment.

In addition, the clear tissue trap is included to enable visual confirmation of the tissue being removed during the procedure and allow detachment for sending the sample to pathology.

The device further facilitates multi-function control of the 360° blade for physicians.

Hologic Medical Affairs medical director and vice-president Edward Evantash said: “There is an increased demand to simplify tissue removal procedures regardless of where they are being performed, in-office or in the theatre.

“The MyoSure MANUAL device is designed to simplify tissue removal procedures in theatre, ambulatory or outpatient setting.”
