PEAK Surgical Announces Completion of First PRECISE Clinical Study, Receipt of Medical Design Excellence Award for PEAK(R) Surgery System and Achievement of Over 1,000 Surgeries Using PEAK PlasmaBlade(TM)
Date:4/7/2009

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 pulses via a highly insulated cutting electrode, the PlasmaBlade cuts at half the average temperature of a conventional electrosurgery device and can be as low as 50 degrees Centigrade. This temperature reduction results in significantly less damage to surrounding tissues compared to traditional electrosurgery. The PlasmaBlade is also able to dissect tissue in a completely submerged surgical field, another shortcoming of traditional electrosurgical devices.
