However, there is a risk of thermal spread
and visceral injury with energy use during resectoscopy .
This effect leads to lower operating temperatures and therefore less thermal spread
Another reason for using LigaSureTM for hemorrhoidectomy is the idea that this vessel sealing system considerably decreases the thermal spread
in comparison to the diathermy instrument.
J-Plasma, Bovie's surgical product, enables surgeons to operate with greater precision on and around delicate structures with minimal thermal spread
J-Plasma, the company's transformational surgical product, enables surgeons to operate with greater precision on and around delicate structures with minimal thermal spread
. The Precise 360 extension adds to the J-Plasma portfolio, which included blade and needle configurations in three different instrument lengths.
Additionally, application of coatings, such as traditional noble metals and the more advanced ceramic-metallic (Cermet) composites, allows the user to operate electrosurgical products at lower power settings, resulting in less thermal spread
and minimized tissue damage.
The Force FX electrosurgical generator has a standard 'cut' setting (low voltage/less thermal spread
than blend, dividing tissue with little hemostasis, or stoppage of blood flow), 'blend' (more thermal spread
than cut with more hemostasis), and 'coag' setting (high voltage with more thermal spread
than blend, used to coagulate tissues).
Its thermal spread
is 0.05 mm versus 0.35 mm with electrosurgery, said Dr.
Briefly describe the product: Bovie's custom J-Plasma is a transformational, helium-based, plasma technology that offers remarkably low thermal spread
a high level of precision with versatility across multiple surgical specialties.
This proprietary LigaSure device offers a low-temperature profile, minimal thermal spread
to surrounding tissues and provides an integrated cutting mechanism independent of sealing, leaving critical cutting decisions in the surgeon's hands.
It remains an important part of our armamentarium despite thermal spread
, smoke, char, tissue sticking, and inconsistent hemostasis, (1-5) shortcomings that have led to the development of newer bipolar electrosurgical devices--the LigaSure[TM] Vessel Sealing System, PlasmaKinetic (PK) platform, and ENSEAL[R].
Through this agreement, Amerinet members will have access to J-Plasma, Bovie's transformational surgical product, which enables surgeons to operate with greater precision and minimal thermal spread
