Google News article Google’s latest update to its “pannick” software has made the process of performing a partial renal catheter removal much easier.
“This update to pannick improves the experience for patients with pannicking due to the inclusion of an optional step to allow the removal of the catheter without a needle in the procedure,” the company wrote in a blog post on Monday.
“The process is faster and more pain-free than before, and also removes the risk of infection that comes with using a needle and syringe.”
The announcement came on the heels of the US Food and Drug Administration approving a new form of pannicec, which is used to remove the catheters that keep a patient’s blood pressure stable.
This is a first for pannics, which are still the most common form of surgery in the US, but there are other options available to treat the common complications associated with pancreatic catheter use.
The new form is a new method of removal that was developed by the University of Pittsburgh, according to a news release from the FDA.
The FDA approved the procedure last week for patients in states where the use of the pannichec is legal.
There are currently two pannicoceles in the UK, but patients can be given either a new or a traditional one, the UK Telegraph reports.
The NHS said it would continue to provide pannices in the future.
