Surgeries in Sofia and New Piranha Morcellator

This time I went to Sofia to operate at the Hill Clinic, and we started a study to evaluate the performance of the new Vmax blades for the Piranha Morcellator, from Richard Wolf.

We did 10 GreenLight Enucleations of the prostate in two days, and we took the opportunity to register the time it took to morcellate the tissue with the new blades. It was really impressive, in one of the patients we could morcellate 70 grams of tissue in 5 minutes!!

I firmly believe this improved morcellation is going to make enucleation more easy and affordable for surgeons, as the morcellation step of the operation was so much shortened that we could operate the 10 patients in less than an hour!

We will submit the results of the study to the European Association of Urology congress that will take place next year in Milan.
