Breast Cancer Overview
Whether it’s deciding on a reconstructive procedure following mastectomy or dealing with the possibility of developing lymphedema as a result of their care, breast cancer patients face a significant uphill battle after their treatment. With Symani, patients can access reconstructive options using their own tissue and the latest technological innovations. For hospitals offering surgical treatment options for lymphedema, they may also be able to prevent or treat the symptoms of lymphedema following their care.
Lymphedema, the build-up of lymphatic fluid resulting in swelling and discomfort, affects over 250 million people worldwide*. Surgical treatment options may improve the symptoms and overall quality of life for these patients, but access to these treatments is limited. This is mainly due to procedural complexity associated with the size of lymphatic vessels. With 7-20x motion scaling and tremor filtration, the Symani Surgical System is designed to enable supermicrosurgical procedures such as lymphovenous anastomosis or bypass (LVA/LVB).
Trauma refers to any altering injury sustained through accident or impact like burns, laceration, crush, nerve damage and fractures. Where tissue is lost due to trauma or infection, it may be necessary to perform a reconstructive procedure using transferred tissue or to perform a replantation of an amputated body part with the goal of restoring circulation and sensation, and where possible, function. Symani allows surgeons to confidently perform these procedures with a high degree of precision and accuracy.
