May 15, 2010

New urology products and services from American Medical Systems, Caris Life Sciences, UROSKOP Omnia, and Covidien.

Minnetonka, MN-American Medical Systems has released GreenLight MoJo, a software upgrade for its GreenLight HPS laser therapy treatment system. The HPS now delivers up to 400 kJ for more efficient treatment of BPH, according to the company. The upgrade allows physicians to remove more tissue and treat larger glands (up to 80 grams) with a single fiber. It also includes a "time out" feature that allows for total operative time of up to 150 minutes. While the average GreenLight procedure takes 50 minutes, this feature extends the total operative time for physicians who are new to GreenLight or are not yet as efficient in their technique, American Medical Systems says.
