Revolutionary Suturing Device, The Switch®, Showcased at the 45th EHS Annual International Congress in Sitges/Barcelona
The 45th EHS Annual International Congress, held from May 3-5, welcomed numerous surgeons from Europe and the US to discuss the prevention of incisional hernias. A key focus of the congress was the small-bites suturing technique, considered the premier method for closing the abdominal wall.
A standout moment from the event was the keynote lecture by Professor Jeekel from Erasmus MC Rotterdam, Netherlands, titled “Prevention: The Past and Future.” In his presentation, Prof. Jeekel highlighted the ground-breaking suturing device, The Switch®, as a significant innovation for applying the small-bites suturing technique.
The Switch®, developed by Mellon Medical, has reinvented the suturing process, making it more efficient and precise. By requiring only one hand for operation, the device allows surgeons to save time, maintain optimal control, and reduce fatigue. Its unique design supports both right- and left-handed surgeons, offering unparalleled freedom of movement.
