Tissue Reveal Technology™
Creating A New Standard in Surgical Fluorescence
Fluorescent assisted minimally invasive surgeries traditionally obtained fluorescence via the use of fluorescent dyes such as ICG.
While sources detailing the efficacy and benefits of fluorescent assisted surgeries are plentiful, surgeons may not regularly use fluorescence during surgeries due to the planning associated with the mixing and injection of dyes. In addition, the risks to the patients when injecting a dye intravenously makes some surgeons hesitant to use ICG and near infrared imaging on a regular basis. This is demonstrated by the additional consenting process for ICG that many physicians require.
EndoGlow developed Tissue Reveal Technology to provide a new method of providing surgical fluorescence, utilizing a fluorescent polymer to create fluorescent surgical devices for a mix-free, injection-free and hassle-free fluorescence.
Tissue Reveal Technology adds the benefit of transillumination. By fluorescing behind tissues, transillumination provides additional information such as tissue depth, tissue quality, anatomical borders and sub-surface pathology.
Transilluminating tissues provides enhanced views that the surgeon might not have otherwise, helping them make more informed decisions.
TRT = Fluorescent Polymer
EndoGlow devices are created with a fluorescent polymer to provide NIR compatible fluorescence.
TRT = Power Free Fluorescence
TRT provides fluorescence without batteries or external power.
TRT = Fluorescence On Demand
Fluorescent surgical tools provide a clean, reliable fluorescence that is always available. Fluorescence can be used throughout the surgery without preparation or time restrictions.
TRT = Injection Free Fluorescence
EndoGlow's fluorescent surgical devices allow surgeons to perform fluorescent assisted surgeries without ICG.
TRT = Transillumination
By fluorescing behind tissue, TRT enables surgeons to transilluminate or locate an area of interest.
Benefits of Transillumination
During minimally invasive surgeries a surgeon is 100% dependent on seeing the surgery via cameras and their ability to make decisions hinges on good image quality.
The most important feature of Tissue Reveal Technology is its ability to transilluminate tissues.
By transilluminating tissues with EndoGlow fluorescent surgical tools, a near infrared camera system (NIR) can capture images that provide additional information such as tissue depth, tissue quality, anatomical borders and sub-surface pathology.
Transilluminating the tissues provide enhanced views that the surgeon might not have otherwise, helping them make more informed decisions.
