J-Plasma™ Update Since last reporting on J-Plasma™, significant progress continues to be made. Jeff Rencher, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Surgical Products stated, “Since introducing J-Plasma™ to surgeons approximately six weeks ago we have achieved three significant milestones. First and most importantly, the product performed as intended and each surgical procedure was completed successfully. Secondly, when compared to similar devices, we have proven the viability and superior performance of our device and technology in the targeted specialties of GYN, plastics and general surgery. Thirdly, we have gained acceptance from both surgeons who were familiar with plasma and those who were only recently introduced to the technology through Bovie's J-Plasma™. To date, we have completed 21 cases including: hysterectomies, adhesiolysis, hernia, breast augmentation and endometriosis, in which surgeons utilized J-Plasma™ on human patients in an operating room setting. Bovie remains focused on the GYN market with surgeons who have used the product indicating a clear preference for J-Plasma™ in lieu of those devices they previously used. As the Company further expands its market presence throughout the U.S., we will continue our evaluations in new areas of surgery and anticipate continued acceptance in future cases. Additionally, the product continues to be used successfully by veterinary surgeons in a variety of applications."
