Aragon Surgical, a Palo Alto, Calif. surgical device company, said it has acquired VeriSure, Inc., a privately held medical device company.

The acquisition amount was undisclosed. Aragon said the deal gives it ownership of the LapCapTM, a laparoscopic product that allows a surgeon to “more easily, rapidly, and predictably” pass a Veress needle into the peritoneal cavity in order to create a pneumoperitoneum (the gas-filled space in which the surgeon operates).

Aragon is backed by Onset Ventures.

Aragon apparently does not have a Web site.
