  • It is estimated that 2% to 5% of all patients who undergo surgery will develop a Surgical Site Infection (SSI). These infections are associated with added morbidity, including prolonged hospitalisation by 2 weeks, 5 times the risk of readmission, an increase in average health care costs of up to $26,000 per patient, and twice the risk of death.[1]
FloraSeal®
  • FloraSeal has been shown to trap and immobilise bacteria that may cause infection to the patient. It rapidly and powerfully kills gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria.[2]
  • FloraSeal effectively reduces microbial colonisation within 15 minutes and maintains a low microbial colonisation throughout the 24 hours after application, has the same efficacy when being used with or without an antimicrobial surgical incise drape, and mitigates microorganisms more effectively than an antimicrobial surgical incise drape alone.[3]

  • PlasmaBlade™ has a significantly lower post-operative haemorrhage rate compared to Coblation[7]
  • The median total outpatient visit cost for tonsillectomy procedures with or without adenoidectomy was significantly lower with the PlasmaBlade™ compared to Coblation ($1,814 versus $2,050)[8]
PlasmaBlade™
  • Post-operative pain scores following adenotonsillectomy were significantly lower in the PlasmaBlade™ group compared to Coblation from post-operative days 7 to 11 and were equivalent between the two groups on all other post-operative days[9]
  • Coblation patients were 2.33 times more likely to experience minor bleeding events at home (that did not require medical intervention) compared to PlasmaBlade™ subjects[9]
  • Faster procedure times when compared to Coblation in adenotonsillectomy[10]
  • Unimpeded performance in wet and dry surgical fields eliminates the need for instrument exchanges, thereby simplifying surgical procedures[11]

PROCEDURES

  • Tonsillectomy
  • Adenoidectomy
  • Uvulopalatopharyngoplasty (UPPP)
  • Patients with pacemaker, DBS, or spine stimulator insitu

  • The RadiaLux™ lighted retractor is a single-use retractor designed to provide surgeons with the ability to manipulate soft tissue through a combination of blades when assembled onto a retractor handle.
  • The retractor provides illumination to the surgical field independent of an external light source or fibre optic cables.
  • The lighted retractor is indicated for enhancing visibility to a surgical field through retraction of soft tissue and illumination of the surgical cavity.
