PEAK Surgical Introduces PlasmaBlade(TM) Product Line Extensions for Use in General Surgery
Date:10/28/2008

- PlasmaBlade Needle and PlasmaBlade EXT Extend PlasmaBlade Family of Tissue Dissection Tools, Which Have Been Used in More Than 150 Surgical

Procedures Since FDA Clearance in July -

PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- PEAK Surgical, Inc., a medical device company that has developed a new tissue dissection system based on a proprietary technology, has introduced two extensions to its PEAK PlasmaBlade(TM) family of disposable surgical cutting and coagulation tools. The PlasmaBlade Needle, which has a fine needlepoint tip, is specifically designed for ultra-precise surgical procedures. The PlasmaBlade EXT is designed for use in surgical procedures requiring an extended-reach tip.

In July, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted PEAK Surgical 510(k) clearance to market the PEAK(R) Surgery System, including the PlasmaBlade 4.0, for use in general surgery. The PlasmaBlade 4.0 is designed to be used to cut through all types of soft tissue, including skin, fat and muscle. All of the PlasmaBlade tissue dissection tools are used in conjunction with PEAK's PULSAR(TM) Generator, which provides pulsed plasma radiofrequency energy to the PlasmaBlade to create surgical incisions and control bleeding. They offer the exacting control of a scalpel and the coagulation of traditional electrosurgery without extensive collateral damage.

Since FDA clearance, surgeons have used the PlasmaBlade 4.0 in more than 150 surgical procedures, including in general, gynecologic, orthopedic, cardiothoracic, plastic and reconstructive surgeries.

"The PlasmaBlade will change the way our practice performs surgery because we will no longer need to switch between a scalpel and a traditional electrosurgery device depending on the surgical field and type of tissue we are cutting," said Dr. Jonathan S. Berek, professor and chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Stanford University School of Medicine and co-director of the
