Although critically important for cancer patients, specimen orientation is often the weak link in the chain of events from surgical excision to pathology report. When used together, MarginMarker® sterile ink kit and CorrectClips® radiographic markers provide the most secure and accurate designation of tissue margins.
Vector Surgical's Tissue Orientation System potentially contributes toward the following medical outcomes:
(Des Moines, Iowa) – The idea is simple; the benefits immense. Dr. Susan Beck, breast surgeon, and the surgeons at Mercy’s Katzmann Breast Center, have been using a procedure called Margin Marker to better prepare tissue samples for analysis in the pathology lab.
(Bethlehem, Pa.) – St. Luke's Hospital is one of 10 hospitals in Pennsylvania and was one of the first in the state to use MarginMarker® to color-code cancerous breast tissue immediately after surgical removal to see whether the entire cancer was removed during the procedure.
(Dalton, Ga.) – Breast cancer patients undergoing surgery at Hamilton Medical Center now have increased chances of better outcomes, thanks to the hospital’s leadership in adopting a new device that allows greater accuracy in the process of removing cancer.
(Flint, Mich.) – A Genesee County breast surgeon has adopted a new device that decreases the chance her patients will get breast cancer again... Dr. Linsey Gold is one of the first surgeons to use MarginMarker in Genesee County.
