Combined Surgical Suction/Irrigation Technology Available Immediately

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Aug. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Globally patented integrated surgical closed-loop suction/irrigation technology is immediately available for purchase and/or license via TAEUS Corporation.

Current suction/irrigation techniques (a.k.a. bulb syringes or "turkey basters," with separate suction) expose patients to increased Surgical Site Infections (SSI). According to the US Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 157,000 SSI occur annually, resulting in more than 8,200 deaths.

The Capraro CSI (Combined Suction Irrigation) device, designed by doctors for doctors, is a low-cost, disposable, ergonomic, closed-loop suction/irrigation handpiece that intuitively promotes the use of more irrigation. Increasing the frequency and volume of closed-loop irrigation during surgery dramatically reduces SSI, costs, and liabilities.

Healthcare and insurance providers can reduce patient overall hospital stay, morbidity and mortality by acquiring this extremely valuable global patent portfolio and technology (August 25, 2010 priority date).
