Resumen:
Un centro público italiano de investigación médica especializado en asistencia sanitaria y medicina traslacional ha desarrollado una nueva mordaza para procedimientos intraorales que permite llevar a cabo procesos de cirugía transoral palatal y orofaríngea gracias al mecanismo retráctil y de sujeción para compresión de la lengua y avance de la base de la lengua. Gracias a su diseño modular, esta mordaza es fácil de aplicar en casi todas las variantes anatómicas y enfermedades y garantiza una anestesia segura a través del tubo endotraqueal. Además, el soporte premolar-molar reduce los riesgos de fractura de los dientes asociados con el uso de mordazas. El centro de investigación busca socios industriales interesados en establecer acuerdos de licencia o cooperación técnica.

Tittle:
Innovative device for exposing the palatal and oropharyngeal region in transoral surgery
Summary:
A leading Italian public medical research centre committed to healthcare and translational medicine has developed an innovative mouth gag for intra-oral procedures to perform safe and easier palatal and oropharyngeal transoral surgery thanks to a retractable and pinching mechanism for tongue compression and tongue base advancement. The medical research centre is looking for industrial partners interested in licensing agreement or technical cooperation agreement of the new device.
Description:
Trans-oral surgeries require holding of the jaws in the open position to facilitate access through the oral cavity to the palate and the oropharyngeal cavity, which is mostly achieved with the use of mouth gags. At present, none of the existing technologies enables the surgeon to get a good view of the whole oropharyngeal region due to the lack of a proper tongue compression and advancement, a potential critical factor that may affect surgery duration, safety and appropriateness.
The Italian public medical research centre has developed the innovative technology that provides optimal exposure of all parts of the palate and oropharyngeal cavity to perform trans-oral surgery. Thanks to its modular design this mouth gag is easy to apply in almost all anatomical and disease variants and guarantee a safe anesthesia via an endotracheal tube. The built-in retractable and pinching mechanism for tongue compression and tongue base advancement makes this device unique on the market; moreover the innovative premolar-molar support of the upper blades reduces significantly eventual risks of teeth fractures, commonly associated with the use of mouth gags, while offering a complete view of the palate.
The Italian medical research centre is looking for industrial partners interested into licensing agreement of the technology or in technical agreement for the co-development and application of the innovative device
Advantages and Innovations:
The most innovative aspects of this technology are:
-Optimal exposure of the palate and the oropharyngeal cavity.
- Retractable and pinching mechanism for tongue compression and tongue base advancement.
- Modular design.
- Operating with an innovative posterior premolar-molar support of the upper blades in order to keep open the jaws without risk of damages for the upper anterior teeth.
