EVEREST MEDICAL INTRODUCES NEW PRODUCT FOR LESS INVASIVE SURGERY

 EVEREST MEDICAL INTRODUCES NEW PRODUCT FOR LESS INVASIVE SURGERY
 MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL, July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Everest Medical Corporation (NASDAQ: EVMD) announced today that it has begun shipment of a new disposable bipolar forceps for use in minimally invasive gynecological and general surgery procedures.
 The BiCOAG(TM) Forceps use bipolar current to coagulate bleeding vessels during laparoscopic surgical procedures such as vaginal hysterectomies, gall bladder removal and hernia repairs. Bipolar technology is inherently safer than other electro-surgical technologies because the radio frequency (RF) energy that is used for coagulation is contained at the surgical sight. Bipolar technology is an alternative to monopolar electrosurgery, which requires passage of the RF current through the patient's body, with the potential for both internal and external burns.
 Everest Medical Corporation designs, manufactures, and markets instruments for less-invasive gall bladder removal, hernia repair, polyp removal and gynecological surgery.
