CareFusion announced the commercial launch of its new micro-laparoscopic line of surgical instruments.
The CareFusion MicroLap offering is a reusable platform featuring a full line of hand instruments, access devices, scopes and accessories. With instruments as small as 2.7 mm in diameter, these instruments leave an incision scar that is half that of standard — 5 mm or 10 mm — laparoscopic instruments, eliminating the need to close the incision site with sutures in some procedures and resulting in a virtually scar-free procedure, according to the company
The new line of microlap instruments is manufactured by a Gimmi GmbH, and San Diego-based CareFusion (NYSE: CFN) is the sole U.S. distributor, according to the company.
In May, CareFusion announced the pricing of three series of senior unsecured notes for an aggregate principal amount of $1 billion.
