Core Access Surgical Technologies
CAST’s Team is specialized in building new markets
for innovative medical device technologies which meet patients and physicians needs.
CAST’s engineering designs
are physician driven.
CAST’s vision is rooted in simple device solutions
to complex medical challenges.
We envision laparoscopic surgery access that is safe, efficient, and standardized.
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication
— Leonardo Da Vinci
Simplicity and innovation are at the heart of CAST Surgical.
Peritoneal Access: gravest concern and leading cause of laparoscopic surgery complications
Blind Entry: access difficult without risk of injury to internal organs
First Attempt Success: operator dependent and, if unsuccessful, multiple attempts significantly increase complications
Access Time: operator dependent, complications due to time potentially life-threatening
Second Operator Required: for manual abdominal lifting
Pediatric Access: difficult
Bariatric: access remains a technical challenge
Lack of Standardization: presents safety challenges with laparoscopic access
our goal: standardization for safe laparoscopic access
