Plasma blade telescopic electrode Medtronic
The PlasmaBlade™ soft tissue dissection device uses brief, precise pulses of radiofrequency (RF) energy to cut and coagulate soft tissue. RF energy, combined with a proprietary insulation technology, enables the PlasmaBlade™ device to dissect with the precision of a scalpel, and the bleeding control of traditional electrosurgery, while producing minimal thermal damage to surrounding tissue. Clinical research has demonstrated that low thermal injury technology offers intra-operative and post-operative benefits when compared to the current standard of care — scalpel and traditional electrosurgery.1,2,3
The PlasmaBlade™ device is indicated for cutting and coagulation of soft tissue during General, Plastic and Reconstruction (including but not limited to skin incisions and development of skin flaps), ENT, Gynecologic, Orthopaedic, Arthroscopic, Spinal and Neurological procedures.
The precision of a scalpel with the bleeding
control of traditional electrosurgery, but
WITHOUT all the collateral thermal damage.
