Titan Medical Inc. said today that it inked a collaborative development deal with Teleflex Inc. to integrate its polymer ligation technology into Titan’s Sport single-port robotic surgical platform.
Toronto-based Titan Medical said that Wayne, Penn.-based Teleflex’s polymer ligation system is intended for vessel sealing and includes an enhanced clip security feature that has been previously used in millions of cases.
“Our patented, multi-articulating instruments have been developed to facilitate the integration of advanced tools and technologies,” said David McNally, president and CEO of Titan Medical. “This collaboration with Teleflex permits the expansion of our robotic instrument portfolio to offer market-leading, proven technology in a variety of surgical disciplines.”
“Teleflex is a leading and innovative medical technology company with whom we share a common purpose of improving patient outcomes with clinically-inspired technology,” he added. “We are proud to be working with them.”
“We continue to partner with leading robotic companies to allow surgeons globally to use our trusted Weck ligation solutions. We are excited about Titan Medical integrating our technology into its single-port robotic surgery system,” stated James Ferguson, general manager of Teleflex‘s surgical division.
Last year, Teleflex acquired Essential Medical Inc. for its MANTA CE-marked vascular closure device.
