Palliare announces US FDA 510(k) clearance

Based in Co. Galway, Palliare is a company dedicated to advancing the state of the art in smoke evacuation and insufflation technologies for laparoscopic, endolumenal, endoscopic and robotic surgery. They recently announced that they have received FDA 510(k) clearance for their END-200 tubeset, which extends the capabilities of its EVA15 continuous pressure insufflation technology from laparoscopic surgery to endoscopic and endoluminal surgery. Commenting on the clearance, John O’Dea, CEO, said “We believe that this is an important step forward in the evolution of insufflation technology, one expressly and uniquely purposed for endoluminal surgery of the gastrointestinal tract. EVA15 is the first insufflator of its kind to be brought to market which will allow intelligent leak-tolerant constant pressure insufflation during endoscopic surgery, features that EVA15 currently offers for laparoscopic and robotic surgery. As new instruments and surgical robots emerge for natural orifice endoluminal surgery, new demands are placed on insufflators to reliably maintain the surgical field in the presence of large leaks. We believe that the EVA15 with END-200 tubeset is uniquely positioned to address these demands”. Shipments of the END-200 are expected to commence in Q4-2021.
