For Surgical Site Infection Prevention In OBGYN Procedures
Discover the Exceptional Versatility of ViClean Wound Protector
Neurovision Medical Products, in collaboration with Haize Medical, is thrilled to unveil ViClean wound protectors, including the WPB and WPA models, at the ACOG 2023 annual scientific meeting and conference. ViClean stands for a new era of wound protection, offering "complete" coverage that significantly reduces contamination of the abdominal cavity, wound surface, and incision. Haize Medical's enhanced design in wound protection provides the utmost safeguard in Obstetrician and Gynecological procedures. With three different dual-ring models, the wound protectors ensure steady, atraumatic self-retraction during operations while delivering 360° shielding to the incision.
With growing evidence supporting their effectiveness, dual-ring designs provide the most comprehensive protection in Obstetrician and Gynecological procedures.¹ ViClean's range of design options, including the WPC, WPA, and WPB models, caters to surgeries of various scales, from minimally invasive to extensive abdominal procedures. No matter the surgical complexity, ViClean has the right fit.
Enhancing OBGYN Surgical Outcomes and Reducing Risks
ViClean wound protector, by Haize Medical, is cleared by the FDA for various surgical procedures, including colorectal, breast, gynecologic, thyroid, vascular, and hepatobiliary surgery. The WPB and WPA models are particularly beneficial during gynecological surgery, especially cesarean section. Both models adjust in height for a tight wrap of the incision, and dual rings provide 360° of atraumatic retraction. Still, WPB features an integrated surface drape and waste collection bag that prevents backflow and collects fluids. These features also make ViClean easy to remove and further protect the incision, surgeons, and the OR environment from contaminants.
Advancing Surgical Site Infection Prevention With Dual-Ring Wound Protectors
Preventing surgical site infections (SSI) is a paramount concern in healthcare. The unique design of ViClean wound protectors has undergone rigorous analysis and monitoring, consistently proving their usability and effectiveness. Notably, studies have shown a significant reduction in SSI using dual-ring wound protectors compared to single-ring devices.² Pooled analysis of multiple trials has consistently favored the protective effect of dual-ring wound protectors, particularly in laparotomy incisions.³ By providing surgeons with a reliable tool that minimizes tissue trauma and contamination risks, ViClean contributes to improved patient outcomes and can play a vital role in perioperative strategies that reduce healthcare-associated infections.
the Potential of ViClean: OBGYN Wound Protection
The utilization of wound protectors is a critical component in modern surgical practices. As studies continue to evolve, the evidence points towards the superior benefits of dual-ring wound protectors over single-ring devices in reducing incisional surgical site infections.²’³ Moreover, collective data highlights the benefits of wound protectors overall, and ongoing research leads to a better understanding of applications. With cost and availability being the primary considerations, selectively using wound protectors for high-risk patients or in dirty surgical incisions can help optimize the balance between infection prevention and cost-effectiveness, ensuring the widespread adoption of this invaluable tool in improving patient outcomes.
ACOG's Impact and the Scope of Obstetrics and Gynecology Practice
Obstetrics and gynecology are comprehensive medical disciplines dedicated to providing holistic care for women throughout their lives. ACOG, founded in 1951, is the premier professional membership organization for obstetrician-gynecologists. The College produces evidence-based practice guidelines and educational materials for patients and offers practice management and career support. Furthermore, ACOG plays a pivotal role in advocating for its members and patients with programs and initiatives to improve women's health.
At Neurovision Medical Products, we are honored to be part of the ACOG 2023 Conference and scientific meeting, where we can highlight our commitment to advancing surgical solutions and dedication to improving patient care. Through our collaboration with ACOG and the introduction of ViClean Wound Protector, we aim to empower surgeons with innovative tools that enhance patient safety and contribute to delivering high-quality care. We look forward to engaging with conference attendees and sharing the capabilities of ViClean for c-sections to minimally invasive gynecologic procedures.
