“MarginMarker is the most accurate method I have found to mark specimens intra-operatively. It is the best way to ensure proper pathologic specimen readings and the MarginMarker paints are the best.”

“Specimen orientation is critical for decreasing local recurrence rates, amount of re-excision, and improving APBI or IORT results.”

“We have been using the kit for over two years. Our surgeons love it. It is easy to use and the ink sticks better to the tissue than other brands. We feel confident that this method provides more accurate margin orientation than by sutures alone.”

“MarginMarker allows more precise margin clearance of tumor and thus assists in breast preservation and cosmesis.”

Susan Beck, DO, FACOS

“MarginMarker improves the accuracy of specimen orientation. As the surgeon, I know the original shape and orientation of the specimen. Previously, I used sutures for orientation and after processing in pathology, the specimen shape was often changed, and it was difficult for me to figure out where I needed to excise more tissue, when necessary, for wider margin. Using MarginMarker, I am confident on the precise location requiring re-excision.”

“MarginMarker has allowed me to submit a breast specimen with accurate margins to the pathologist. I evaluate intraoperatively and have decreased my re-excision rate.”

Regina Hampton, MD, FACS

“I believe the use of MarginMarker prevents margin ‘mistakes,’ and that the initial surgery achieves clear margins and a better cosmetic outcome as a result.”

“We have been working with Vector Surgical to evaluate MarginMarker kits in melanoma patients undergoing sentinel lymph node biopsy, in hopes we can extend this technology to this important group of patients.”

“These devices allow for lesser returns to the operating room and/or less tissue resected in case of margin involvement.”

“With MarginMarker ink I ensure the most accurate assessment of margins. In case of the need for additional resection, I know exactly what additional tissue is needed.”

“Orientation of breast specimens is no more a guessing game with CorrectClips. They are seen in accompanying radiology films. They are easy to remove after applying ink to the specimens.”

Hi Hong, MD

“This system takes the guesswork out of margin assessment.”

“Accurate marking of the margins is key in assuring a good outcome of breast surgery.”

“Correct orientation of the biopsy is critical to evaluation of margins and clearance of cancer.”

“I have used it hundreds of times. The pathologist likes the fact that the margins can be precisely marked by the surgeon.”

“Excellent product. It is easy to use and gives me confidence that my margins are accurate.”

Daniel F. Barnas, MD, FACS

“Not only is it extremely easy to use, my pathologists love the accuracy of the margins marked.  I find that any area that does need re-excision is very accurate.”

Brian Weinstein, MD, FACS

Westside Regional Medical Center
Plantation, Florida USA

“We used the system and it worked very nicely. We had an issue with a margin on the first case and the system worked as advertised regarding positive and negative margin. We plan to order this for all lumpectomies”

“MarginMarker is the most accurate method I have found to mark specimens intraoperatively. Previously, I used long and short sutures for orientation and location of resection margins after pancreatoduodenectomy. After processing in pathology, the specimen shape was often changed, and it was difficult for me to discuss with the pathologist where he needed to excise more tissue microscopy for optimal pathological staging. Using MarginMarker, I am confident on the precise location requiring re-excision. MarginMarker improves the accuracy of specimen orientation and thereby uniform pathological classification of pancreatic tumours.”
