Synovis MCA


Since 2015 Severn Healthcare has been the UK supplier of the GEM brand of products, dedicated to the field of Microsurgery. Severn works alongside our partner Synovis MCA who are manufacturers of one of the most significant technological advancements in recent years for venous anastomosis called the, GEM Coupler.

Coupler

GEM Coupler enables microsurgeons to perform a mechanical anastomosis with no need for sutures. It offers significant improvements in flap ischemia times, stents the vessel, is fantastic at accommodating vessel discrepancy and provides a perfect intima to intima contact, offering a non-impeded lumen to improve vessel patency.

Severn also provides the GEM Flow Coupler. GEM Flow Coupler enables a microsurgeon to accurately monitor the venous flow exactly at the point of anastomosis, where normal visible monitoring techniques aren’t possible. This gives the surgical team peace of mind that good flap perfusion is taking place. In some instances, the use of GEM Flow Coupler can also save a secondary theatre procedure to remove any monitoring skin paddle e.g. during NSM (nipple sparing mastectomy) procedures.

Clips

Other products to assist in free flap surgery are the GEM Micro and GEM Superfine titanium clips. With a unique chevron diamond bevelled edge, the GEM range of clips offers surgeons a perfect atraumatic vessel closure product, limiting multidirectional slippage. In particular the GEM Superfine Microclips are the smallest clips available and perfect for side branch vessels; many surgeons referring to them as ‘just the right size’!

Dermaclose

Recently launched in the UK, Dermaclose offers surgeons the ability to perform a delayed closure of a wound without any need for a split or full thickness skin graft. The unique technology pulls together previous wound closure concepts, however provides a fully automated solution that doesn’t require any ward based re-adjustment. The product simply applies a continuous pressure force across the wound which is possible through the unique internal clutch system. Once closure is achieved the device is removed and the wound is stitched together. Perfect indications for Dermaclose are below.

  • Fasciotomies
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Scar revision
  • Dehisced wounds
  • High tension closures
  • Excisional wounds
  • Large skin deficits
  • Acute surgical wounds
  • Delayed primary closures
  • Skin cancer removal
  • Congenital nevus
  • Large lacerations
  • Chronic wounds
  • Diabetic ulcers
  • Hard-to-heal wounds
  • Plus many more…
