CleanCision Honored Among Top Innovations by TIPS Infection Prevention Organization
First-in-class irrigating wound retraction and protection system recognized as innovative technology by global infection prevention organization, InfectionControl.tips
SAN CARLOS, Calif., Sept. 4, 2018
Prescient Surgical, innovator of advanced tools and technologies to fight and defend against the sources of surgical site infection (SSI), announced that its CleanCisionTM active cleansing technology was named one of a select group of top innovations by The Infection Prevention Strategy, a global not-for-profit organization that promotes and communicates clinical results and experiences through its publication, InfectionControl.tips. The organization is also a strategic partner of the HealthCare Infection Transmission System (HITS) Consortium.
To earn recognition as a top innovation by The Infection Prevention Strategy community, medical technology must advance medical practice and provide benefit for patients.
Developed by surgeons and infection control experts, CleanCision is designed for use during surgery, combining wound retraction, irrigation, protection and suction into an intuitive, easy-to-use system that fights and defends against the most pervasive sources of infection to maintain a healthy surgical incision.
Unlike traditional methods, which cannot continuously and consistently clear contamination from the surgical site, CleanCision utilizes active cleansing technology to clear harmful bacteria throughout surgery when the threat of wound contamination is at its highest.
Currently approved for use in abdominal surgery, CleanCision gives surgical teams more control over the sources of surgical site infection for better outcomes for patients.
“It is extremely gratifying to be recognized by the infection prevention community,” said Jonathan Coe, president, CEO and co-founder of Prescient Surgical. “CleanCision represents the collective expertise and wisdom of surgical teams and infection prevention leaders who are committed to filling a critical gap in SSI care. They work tirelessly to achieve zero-preventable surgical site infections. We share this honor with them.”
