Precise definition of tissue margins is the standard of care.
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:
- More accurate re-excisions
- Reduced number of unnecessary re-excisions
- Lower cancer recurrence
- Minimized risk of litigation due to medical errors in specimen handling during cancer surgery
- Compliance with CAP Accreditation Program’s Anatomic Pathology Checklist (July, 2011) (ANP.22998)
- Increased OR safety
- Greater OR efficiency
Hospital Success Stories
(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 MarginMarker to better prepare tissue samples for analysis in the pathology lab.
(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – 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, Georgia) – 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, Michigan) – 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.
