Viveve Medical reported additional clinical results from the LIBERATE-International Trial, a multicentered, randomized, double-blinded, sham-controlled trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Viveve's proprietary, cryogen-cooled monopolar
radiofrequency technology for the improvement of stress urinary incontinence in women.
Electrosurgical instruments/units are further sub-segmented as monopolar
and bipolar instruments, where monopolar
instruments occupied the largest share during 2018.
Under the RF umbrella, devices can be classified as monopolar
, unipolar, bipolar, and multipolar depending on its electrodes.
The AEM[R] Shielded Instruments are designed to eliminate burns caused by monopolar
energy insulation failure and capacitive coupling, reducing complications and readmissions.
These sources are conventional monopolar
device, PlasmaKinetic, Argon Beam coagulator, ultrasonic, LigaSure (Valleylab, Boulder, Colorado), Tunderbeat (Olympus Medical Systems Corp., Tokyo, Japan) and Harmonic Scalpel (Ethicon, Cincinnati, Ohio).
Thermocautery is commonly mistaken for monopolar
electrocautery, even by urology specialists and pediatric surgeons.
Objective: The objective of this study was to compare the mean per operative and post operative blood loss using harmonic scalpel and monopolar
electrocautry in modified radical mastectomy.
Baker Tilly Virchow Krause, LLP, an economic consulting firm, showed that average total bipolar TURP cost per procedure is approximately $1,100 lower than monopolar
TURP, amounting to a 23.1 percent cost savings.
Bipolar resection had a higher rate of cautery artifact 5/42 (12%), compared to monopolar
resection 2/77 (2.6%) approaching significance (p=0.095).
