LT_23544_sm_SuppMov1.mp416411KSupporting Information Movie 1. Insertion, fixation and removal of the IscAlert PCO2 sensor. The video demonstrates insertion of the IscAlert PCO2 sensor in the liver via a split-cannula technique. The IscAlert sensor is equipped with a 7.0 suture, which is affixed to a resorbable 5.0 suture in the falciform ligament (human) or parenchyma (swine). Upon removal, the 7.0 suture tears apart from the 5.0 suture, thus the organ is not injured.
