PEAK Surgical Announces Positive Fascia Incision Healing Results From Preclinical Study of PEAK PlasmaBlade(TM) for Gynecologic Surgery
Date:5/7/2009

lade(TM) is a family of disposable, low-temperature surgical cutting and coagulation devices that offer the exacting control of a scalpel and the bleeding control of traditional electrosurgery without the extensive collateral damage. The PlasmaBlade is part of the PEAK(R) Surgery System, which also includes the PULSAR(R) Generator. The generator provides pulsed plasma radiofrequency energy to the PlasmaBlade to incise tissue and control bleeding. The PEAK Surgery System is cleared for use in general, plastic and reconstructive, ENT, gynecologic, orthopedic, arthroscopic, spinal and neurological surgical procedures in the United States, and for use in general surgery in the European Union. It was launched in July 2008 in the United States and has been used by U.S. surgeons on more than 1,000 patients, including general, gynecologic, and plastic and reconstructive surgeries.

Study Design and Results

In the study presented at the ACOG Annual Meeting, midline abdominal fascia incisions were made in a rat model using the PlasmaBlade, a standard scalpel blade and a traditional electrosurgery tip on the Cut and Coagulation settings. Incisions were closed with a nylon suture and monitored for healing. Wound tissue samples were harvested immediately after incision and at weeks 1, 2, 3 and 6, and compared with a skin-only incision control to evaluate for thermal injury depth, inflammatory response, collagen deposition and stage of healing. Results showed:

  • Histological evaluation of the rat fascia incisions demonstrated that the PlasmaBlade produced a 75 percent reduction in acute thermal injury depth with significant reductions in healed fascial scar width at 1, 2 and 6 weeks compared to the traditional electrosurgery tip.
  • The PlasmaBlade incisions demonstrated reduced inflammatory response at Week 1 compared with the scalpel incisions (p=0.0001), and at Weeks 1 and 2 compared with the
