: Background: Intraoperative blood loss has an unfavorable impact on the outcome of patients undergoing liver surgery. Today, the use of devices capable of minimizing this risk with high technical performance becomes mandatory. Into this scenario fits the CUSA® Clarity Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator System. This prospective survey involving five liver surgery centers had the objective of investigating whether this innovative ultrasonic surgical aspirator is safe and effective in the transection of the liver parenchyma. Materials and Methods: This clinical study was a prospective, multicenter, single-arm Post-Market Clinical Follow-up study investigating 100 subjects who underwent liver surgery using the CUSA Clarity Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator System at five centers during a period of 1 year and 8 months. After collecting all the patient's clinical information and instrument usage details, surgeons completed a brief survey giving their opinions on the performance of CUSA. Therefore, safety and efficacy outcomes were evaluated. Results: Surgeons had a 95% success rate in complete removal of the mass with an average overall operative time of 4 hours and 34 minutes. Overall, there were no complications or device deficiencies. Conclusion: The CUSA Clarity Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator System performs well during liver surgery with a low complication rate. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04298268.

Abstract

: Background: Intraoperative blood loss has an unfavorable impact on the outcome of patients undergoing liver surgery. Today, the use of devices capable of minimizing this risk with high technical performance becomes mandatory. Into this scenario fits the CUSA® Clarity Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator System. This prospective survey involving five liver surgery centers had the objective of investigating whether this innovative ultrasonic surgical aspirator is safe and effective in the transection of the liver parenchyma. Materials and Methods: This clinical study was a prospective, multicenter, single-arm Post-Market Clinical Follow-up study investigating 100 subjects who underwent liver surgery using the CUSA Clarity Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator System at five centers during a period of 1 year and 8 months. After collecting all the patient's clinical information and instrument usage details, surgeons completed a brief survey giving their opinions on the performance of CUSA. Therefore, safety and efficacy outcomes were evaluated. Results: Surgeons had a 95% success rate in complete removal of the mass with an average overall operative time of 4 hours and 34 minutes. Overall, there were no complications or device deficiencies. Conclusion: The CUSA Clarity Ultrasonic Surgical Aspirator System performs well during liver surgery with a low complication rate. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT04298268.
