The Fifth Arm Surgical Multiplanar Suction improves surgical site visibility, minimizing surgical time by eliminating workarounds necessitated by poor suction/irrigation
Suction/irrigation systems provide straight line access while other workarounds such as sponges or rubber tubes are time consuming. Robotic platforms offer a robotic suction/irrigation arm tool option that is expensive and limits the surgeons' capabilities in active dissection and bleeding control.
Patient anatomy can prevent access of suction/irrigation to surgical regions, interference with other surgical instruments, patients' organs block visibility and surgical dissection can present difficult orientations. When bleeding occurs, rapid visualization
at the bleeding site is critical.
A Versatile "Sheath" over an existing metal rigid suction/irrigation shaft. The Patented, full anatomical access movement bends around patient anatomy to consistently eliminate time consuming work arounds while retaining all straight rigid tip function.
