Medtronic plc, the global leader in medical technology, announced the first gynecological (GYN) procedures with the Hugo™ robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) system. The Six Gynecological Procedures Took Place Earlier This Month at Pacifica Salud Hospital in Panama City, Panama.
Hugo RAS system plays a critical role in bringing the benefits of minimally invasive surgery, the first-ever in the world using the Hugo RAS system. Earlier this month, the hospital announced its first five urological cases with the Hugo RAS system. Pacifica Salud is also an early adopter of Touch Surgery™ Enterprise, a cloud-based surgical video capture solution that allows surgeons to seamlessly record, analyze, and share surgical video.
The first clinical procedures with the Hugo system took place in Santiago, Chile. That marked the beginning of the Hugo RAS system patient registry, which is collecting clinical data to support regulatory submissions around the world.
The Hugo RAS system joins a portfolio of gynecological products designed to enable less invasive surgical treatment of a range of conditions including abnormal uterine bleeding, uterine fibroids, and endometrial cancer.
The Hugo RAS system is not cleared or approved in the U.S. or Europe. Regulatory requirements of individual countries and regions will determine availability and approval or clearance timelines. Touch Surgery Enterprise is available in the U.S. and Europe; it is not intended to direct surgery or aid in the diagnosis or treatment of a disease or condition.
