Oferta Tecnológica
Una universidad japonesa que ha desarrollado una pinza intestinal ofrece oportunidades de licencia a fabricantes alemanes y franceses de equipos médicos. Esta pinza, actualmente en uso clínico en Japón, ha demostrado su efectividad en la prevención de recaídas del cáncer de colon.


Japanese university offering gut clamper to medical equipment manufacturers in Germany and France
A Japanese university is offering a licensing opportunity for a surgical gut clamp to German and French manufacturers of medical equipment. The gut clamper is already in clinical use in Japan and confirmed its effectiveness in preventing recurrences of colonic cancer.
A university in Japan is looking for a medical equipment manufacturing company in Germany or France who is interested in a newly developed gut clamp for the surgical operation of intestines. The surgical gut clamp, a gut clamper, has been in use clinically in Japan and its patent is registered in Germany and France. They would like to offer this technology by licensing.

The potential partner would have opportunity to learn this cutting edge technology directly from them.
Advantages and Innovations:
The gut clamper includes two hard rod-like bodies having flexible belts on one end, a joint at which the rod-like bodies are joined, and at least one through hole made in one of the belts. The gut tract is clipped by using the two hard rod-like bodies and the joint as a pivot. By clipping the gut tract by side surfaces of the rod-like bodies, it can be clipped while the width of the gut is pressed and widened, so that the gut is prevented from being excessively clamped and torn.

Moreover, the two rod-like bodies are made different in length from each other, a through hole is made in the belt connected to the shorter rod-like body that is about 5 cm, and the tip end of the longer rod-like body is fit into the through hole and locked, so that reliable clipping is realized without an excessive burden being placed on an operator.

The gut clamper has following innovated points:

- A minimally invasive medical clamper for an operation for colonic cancer.
- Can be operated in a narrow abdominal cavity in case of laparoscopic operation.
- Unlike clothespin clamping, it can clip the whole circumference and give assurance to an operator that clipping is sufficient.
- Unlike using a bundling band, it can clip the gut tract by surfaces instead of tightening in a ringed manner and can clamp the gut while widening the width of the gut.

The gut clamper is already in clinical use in Japan and confirmed its effectiveness in preventing recurrences of colonic cancer.
