NEW VISUALIZATION SYSTEMS FROM FUJIFILM
FUJIFILM New Development, USA, has introduced 2 visualization systems for minimally invasive surgery. Using proprietary technology, the Ultra-Slim Video Laparoscope System (EL-580FN) delivers enhanced image resolution, color fidelity, and display quality, says FUJIFILM. The product features include “Chip on the Tip” high-definition digital imaging processing, less fogging, autoclave sterilization reprocessing, and a low profile, lightweight ergonomic handle. The 3.8-mm-diameter distal end was designed to improve workflow, reduce physician fatigue, and potentially reduce the size of incisions. The accompanying Digital Video Processor System is used for endoscopic procedures with automatic light control, an anti-blur function for motion images, and digital zoom.
FUJIFILM reports that the Full High Definition Surgical Visualization System is designed for a wide variety of surgical applications and offers edge enhancement, automatic gain control, dynamic contrast function, selective color enhancement, smoke reduction, and grid removal features. It includes a portfolio of rigid scopes, cameras, and video processing systems.

FREEMIE BREAST MILK COLLECTION SYSTEM
Freemie® offers a hands-free breast-milk collection system with the Freemie Liberty Mobile Hands Free Breast Pump System and Next Generation Freemie Closed System Collection Cups.
The concealable pump has a rechargeable battery and hospital-power suction for single or double pumping. Programmable memory buttons allow the mother to preset or adjust speed and suction functions. Tubing lengths can be changed so that the pump can be placed on a desk, worn with a detachable belt clip, or carried in a bag.
Freemie says the cups are lower-profile and more compact than other pump system cups, and when placed on the breast under the mother’s bra, can be easily removed so that milk can be transferred to storage. Each cup, with a 25 mm or 28 mm funnel and valve, holds 8 oz of milk.

PREVENTEZA: EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTIVE
Combe, Inc, the maker of Vagisil®, has launched Preventeza™ (levonorgestrel tablet, 1.5 mg), an emergency contraceptive for the prevention of pregnancy if unprotected sex or failed birth control occurs.
Available online or over-the-counter as a single tablet, Preventeza is a proven option to help women prevent pregnancy before it starts by using a higher dose of levonorgestrel than most birth control pills. It must be used within 72 hours of unprotected intercourse, and is not intended to be used as regular birth control. Combe says that Preventeza works mainly by stopping the release of an egg from the ovary and may also prevent fertilization of an egg or prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus. Combe also says that levonorgestrel 1.5 mg will not work if the woman is already pregnant and will not affect an existing pregnancy.

UPSPRING’S C-PANTY FOR POSTCESAREAN RECOVERY
UpSpring® says that its patented C-Panty® undergarment provides medical-grade compression and speeds recovery after cesarean delivery. C-Panty helps to reduce swelling and discomfort, supports weakened muscles, and reduces the incision bulge without hooks, straps, or Velcro that might irritate the incision area.
C-Panty’s medical-grade silicone panel suppresses the formation of excess or improperly formed collagen, which can contribute to scarring, says UpSpring. The silicone may help reduce itchiness, and can lessen the chance of infection at the incision area. The silicone is durable, washable, and integrated into the panty, eliminating the need for scar gel or scar gel pads.
The C-Panty can be worn immediately after birth and for up to 12 months. If worn when the incision is not healed, the silicone panel should be covered with a panty liner or pad. Once the incision has healed, the covering can be discontinued.
