Date:5/7/2009

traditional electrosurgery tip on the Cut setting (p=0.02) and Coagulation setting (p=0.006).
  • The PlasmaBlade and scalpel were associated with greater wound strength than traditional electrosurgery on the Cut setting at Week 1 (p=0.004), with a continued trend of greater wound strength compared with the traditional electrosurgery tip on the Cut setting (p=0.22) at Week 2.

  • Benefits of the PlasmaBlade and PULSAR Generator

    For decades, surgeons have relied on scalpels to cut skin and delicate tissues and have used electrosurgical devices to cut and coagulate fat and other thicker, tougher tissues. Although scalpels precisely cut tissue, they do not control bleeding. Electrosurgical devices, on the other hand, cut efficiently and control bleeding but cause extensive thermal damage to surrounding tissue. In cases where the risk of collateral damage or scarring from electrosurgery is considered to be unacceptable, surgeons must use both a traditional scalpel for cutting and an electrosurgical device for coagulation.

    The PlasmaBlade family of devices offers the precision of a scalpel and the bleeding control of a traditional electrosurgery device in a single surgical instrument. The PlasmaBlade family includes the PlasmaBlade 4.0, which is designed to be used to cut through all types of soft tissue, including skin, fat and muscle; the PlasmaBlade Needle, which has a fine needlepoint tip and is specifically designed for ultra-precise surgical procedures; and the PlasmaBlade EXT, which is designed for use in surgical procedures requiring an extended-reach tip.

    Unlike most radiofrequency-based surgical products that use continuous voltage waveforms to cut tissue, the PULSAR Generator supplies pulsed plasma radiofrequency energy to the PlasmaBlade to incise tissue and control bleeding. Because the radiofrequency energy is provided through short on-and-off
