AC3 Optimus™ Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump
AC3 Optimus™ Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump (IABP) is a device designed for patients who need mechanical cardiac support. When a patient experiences elevated heart rate or arrhythmia, the AC3 Optimus™ Intra-Aortic Balloon Pump produces rapid intra-beat inflation timing accuracy along a broad spectrum of patient conditions, irrespective of how severe the arrhythmia is. It is an IABP which is intuitively designed for simplicity, as well as offering clinical support when needed, and is also engineered to be economically efficient.
MiniLap® Percutaneous Surgical System
Teleflex’s MiniLap® Percutaneous Surgical System is engineered to reduce patient trauma, whilst capitalising on all the functions a clinician would need for laparoscopic procedures which are less complex. The system is also an advance in the field of minimally invasive surgery (including operations such as percutaneous laparoscopy). The system also implements a 2.4mm shaft, which can enter the skin directly using an integrated needle tip, which doesn’t require the use of a trocar, meaning smaller incisions for smaller scars are possible, resulting in less trauma.
