Checkpoint Surgical introduces new nerve cutting kit

Checkpoint Surgical has expanded its intraoperative nerve care portfolio with the launch of its Checkpoint Edge Nerve Cutting Kit.

The Checkpoint Edge Nerve Cutting Kit uses circumferential constraint to maintain the nerve’s natural shape during transection.

Constraining the nerve can help prevent sliding, flattening or potential subsequent nerve edge malformation.

This helps to preserve the alignment of fascicular group and tissue integrity.

Checkpoint Surgical stated that traditional nerve cutting methods may flatten and crush nerve tissue, which results in deformed nerve ends and makes alignment difficult.
