Benefits and Risks of Surgery

  • Benefits: NICO devices are cleared by the FDA for various uses.

      • The NICO Myriad is cleared “for the morcellation and removal of tissue during pelviscopic, laparoscopic, percutaneous and open surgical procedures whenever access to the surgical site is limited.” In layman terms, this means that the device can remove tissue during surgery.
      • The NICO BrainPath device is intended to “provide for access and allow for visualization of the surgical field during brain and spinal surgery.” In layman terms, this means that the NICO BrainPath is a special tool used during brain and spinal surgery to provide the physician treatment access to the place where surgery takes place.
      • The NICO Myriad and BrainPath are “tools” used by doctors. They do not specifically treat any disease. These devices have been used by physicians to address soft tissue abnormalities. Physicians should use their best judgment and clinical experience when deciding where to use the NICO Myriad and BrainPath.

  • Risks: Surgery with NICO products is not without risk. A variety of complications may occur, either alone or in combination. Patients should consult with their physicians regarding their specific risks.
