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.
Its thermal spread
is 0.05 mm versus 0.35 mm with electrosurgery, said Dr.
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
