According to Andy Cron, Vice President of the Surgery Business Unit at Cook Medical, the Doppler DP-M350 device could perceive changes in blood flow right away after the surgery, which would help the surgeon to act before the occurrence of free flap failure. This instrument with its new enhancements would provide surgeons and nurses to deliver superior overall patient care.

This Doppler System would help surgeons to monitor constantly for thrombosis or loss of patency with the help of its audio confirmation and flow indication lights. According to Dr. Michael Gimbel, who is an Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh, it was important to identify a blood flow problem immediately as the surgeon could save a free tissue transfer during the critical brief window time period available. This system has the exclusive ability of monitoring difficult to access vascular areas, and also notice a blood flow problem. This system would also help in flap insetting which helps to identify a vessel kink or twist before the patient leaves the OR. This system has been granted clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration in March 2011.
