Surgical Site Infections (SSI) are among the most common types of nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infections worldwide. They are the cause of significant patient morbidity and mortality, and they place a significant economic burden on the healthcare system. Ethicon Endo-Surgery addresses this problem by offering PLUS antibacterial sutures. With the PLUS app, sales representatives have access to a variety of clinical studies involving normal and PLUS sutures. The results of these studies can be incorporated into communications with physicians. Sales representatives can tailor their communications by selecting different study types.
