Invuity (NSDQ:IVTY) said yesterday it launched the PhotonGuide Adapt system featuring a flexible illuminator and retractors for vaginal surgical procedures.

The devices are designed for use in procedures including pelvic organ prolapse repairs and vaginal hysterectomies, the San Francisco-based company said.

The PhotonGuide Adept’s waveguide is designed to conform to different sizes and shapes of retractors and allows for illumination adjustment along the length of the retractor.

“The PhotonGuide Adapt launch marks a major milestone in our commitment to advancing surgical procedures in women’s health. We now have a comprehensive product portfolio designed to meet the clinical and economic needs of the surgical gynecologist and their female patients,” prez & CEO Scott Flora said in a press release.

“I perform over 100 vaginal surgical cases per year, and every case presents a unique challenge. Invuity’s illumination technology creates a more efficient surgical experience through its direct intracavity visualization. This is most beneficial during uterosacral ligament suspension procedures. During this procedure with PhotonGuide Adapt, I am not only able to retract the pelvic organs while protecting the ureters, but I am also able to directly visualize these organs and other pelvic floor support structures, which is essential for a great surgical outcome,” Dr. Doug Miyazaki of Winston-Salem, N.C.’s Novant Health said in a prepared statement.

In March, Invuity priced an offering looking to raise approximately $21.7 million, with an additional $2.1 million possible through a 30-day underwriter’s option.
