FDA Approves 3DHD Laparoscopic Visualization System

September 15, 2010 — The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance for a next-generation laparoscopic visualization system (Next Generation 3DHD; Viking Systems, Inc) that uses a Sony 3-dimensional high-definition (3DHD) flat-panel display with lightweight glasses.

“Viking’s Next Generation 3DHD system represents a huge improvement over 2D HD visualization in laparoscopic surgery,” Gerald Andriole, MD, chief of urological surgery at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri and newly appointed Medical Advisor for Viking Systems, Inc, was quoted as saying in a company presentation. “Having a 3D image gives the surgeon superb control while manipulating needles for intracorporal sewing, making knot tying simple.”
