Uterine Surgery Comparison:
Today (Left) vs. Virtuoso (Right)

Virtuoso’s tools are delivered for resection of a polypoid mass using retraction and electrosurgery in an ex-vivo porcine model. Shown side-by-side with a procedure today.

Uterine Retraction and Resection: Ex-Vivo Porcine Model

Resection of a polypoid mass using retraction and electrosurgery in an ex-vivo porcine model. Shown side-by-side with the surgeon’s hands. The operating surgeon was new to the system, illustrating that there is essentially no learning curve in using it.

Bladder Wall Resection: Cadaver

Retraction and energy delivery in a cadaver bladder. This simulates the Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor (TURBT) surgical procedure.

Live Animal (Porcine)
Uterine Resection

The surgeon resects into the wall, delivers a snare, lifts, and applies traction to the tissue to enable further resection and bleeding control.
