Our KSA Surgical Unit has conducted a successful meeting on the 26th August to re-introduce Gelita Medical, one of our partners for Absorbable Hemostatic agents, to the Obstetrics & Gynecology Department in Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib Group, Riyadh.

Around 40 people attended the meeting, including the Head of Department, Consultants, Specialists and OR nurses. Our team presented the full range we distribute of Gelita Medical innovative Absorbable Hemostats based on gelatin and oxidized cellulose.

Gelita Medical’s fast-acting Absorbable hemostats can be directly applied to the bleeding site for effective bleeding management – a process that saves valuable time for the surgeon and the patient in the emergency room or operating theater and secure them from any risk of post-operative complications to optimize desired effects.

Due to the current difficult situation and Covid-19 restrictions, the project was challenging but thanks to the hard work and efforts of our Surgical Unit team, we were able to transform this challenging situation into a great win for Zahrawi Group KSA.

Our Surgical Equipment Unit team organized a very successful hybrid seminar for oncology doctors called “The Role of PIPAC in Colorectal, Gastric and Ovarian Malignancies “at Mediclinic Parkview Hospital, Dubai to talk about a new treatment technique named PIPAC (Pressurized Intra-Peritoneal Aerosol Chemotherapy).

This minimally invasive novel way of introducing chemotherapy into the abdomen under pressure through 1cm size ports is used to treat inoperable cases of advanced cancers of the stomach, colon, end-stage peritoneal carcinomatosis and ovaries.

Over 25 doctors from Mediclinic and 15 online participants attended the seminar to learn more about this innovative technique and discuss with Dr. Olivia Sgarbura, the pioneer of ISSPP and PIPAC in Europe who flew from Paris to share her experience with the audience.

The next day, Dr. Zakir K. Mohamed and Prof. Amir Nisar, and Consultant Oncologist Dr. Shaheena Dawood performed the first surgery in the UAE at Mediclinic Parkview Hospital using PIPAC technique with the CapnoPen system from our principal company Capnomed to treat a stomach cancer.

The patient was diagnosed with stomach cancer, which had spread inside her abdomen making it inoperable. Thanks to this innovative way of exposing the cancer inside the abdomen directly to chemotherapy by a minimally invasive approach, the patient received the best chance of recovery.
