We are thrilled to see our Overhead Arm Support feature in this independent study that explores the reduction of radiation exposure during endovascular aortic repairs, published recently on the Journal of Vascular Surgery.
"Elevation of a patient’s arms above their head using an OAS during F/BEVAR offered a low-cost, simple strategy that resulted in a 30% reduction in radiation exposure without added complications. This technique improved visualization and reduced radiation exposure for patients and physicians and should be included in abdominal aortic and visceral procedures work to improve patient and surgeon safety".
