Acelity Announces Availability of its REVOLVE System in Europe

Acelity announced that its patented REVOLVE System is now available in Europe. REVOLVE System offers fast, efficient and secure fat tissue processing in a range of reconstructive procedures. Fat grafting involves harvesting and transferring adipose tissue or body fat from one area of the body to another. The technique is gaining in popularity with surgeons because it uses the patient’s own tissue to enhance volume. REVOLVE System is designed to yield rapid, reliable results in high-volume procedures through the use of a simple, closed system that controls critical variables in fat grafting. The single-use device can be placed in the sterile field to facilitate more efficient processing, filtering and transferring of a patient’s own (autologous) fat tissue. It enables high-volume fat processing (up to 700ml lipoaspirate) in less than 10 minutes, offering the potential to reduce operating room (OR) procedure time. REVOLVE System has been used in multiple fat grafting surgeries. REVOLVE System uses surgical mesh specifically designed to filter blood debris and fluid to attain clean and high quality adipose tissue for transfer. The device also has a proprietary “collagen string catcher,” which helps prevent clogging within syringe tips during adipose re-implantation and effectively enhances procedural speed and proficiency.
