The studies (n=5) were performed in 2016 and 2017 by internationally renowned surgeon Dr. Karl-Hermann Fuchs, who serves on the company’s Scientific Advisory Board. The results demonstrate that further reduction of abdominal trocars and operative trauma during transanal colon resection is possible and that pure TaCR using a modified version of the symphonX™ surgical platform seems feasible. The data also reveals a promising learning curve, suggesting that clinicians are able to learn the technique of using this platform quickly. symphonX™ is the world’s smallest single-port surgery solution for use in minimally invasive abdominal laparoscopic surgery.
