The Italy-based SACMI group has donated a new high-tech electrosurgical unit to the gastroenterology department of the Santa Maria della Scaletta hospital in Imola. The new Vio3 electrosurgical unit will be delivered to the hospital this spring, after which high-tech electrosurgery services will soon be available.
“SACMI is continuously engaged in initiatives that support our schools, healthcare facilities, and various associations; together, they deliver essential training and care, both locally and around the world,” says Paolo Mongardi, president of SACMI. “This Christmas, we’ve chosen to support the gastroenterology department of our local hospital in Imola. Our aim is to give this facility – renowned for its excellence – a further technological boost by making increasingly cutting-edge treatment available”.
“Electrosurgical units are advanced tools that have a broad application range in operative endoscopy,” says professor Pietro Fusaroli, chief consultant of the gastroenterology unit at the Santa Maria della Scaletta hospital in Imola. “Digital technology provides surgeons with valuable support when performing finely targeted operations as it can deliver specific tissue effects with extreme precision. This reduces the risk of bleeding and perforation while safeguarding adjacent healthy tissues, aspects that can make a major difference in terms of both the quality of the surgery and the patient’s prognosis”.
Andrea Rossi, general manager of Imola’s Local Health Authority thanked Mongardi, the directors, partners, and all the workers at SACMI for the gift. “Once again, SACMI has generously lent its support to local public health services. This latest donation will provide one of the most advanced local healthcare facilities with next-level technology,” Rossi said.
The new electrosurgical unit will replace the instrument currently used by the department, further optimizing its performance in keeping with the wider, fast-paced technological-digital development of the entire medical equipment sector.
SACMI is a provider of machines and complete systems for the ceramics, metals, packaging, food, and beverage industries, and for the production of containers made of plastic and advanced materials.
