  • Surgical Site Infections (SSI) are a common complication following breast surgery procedures, despite being considered a clean surgery, with incidences of infection typically ranging from 0.8–26%.[1]
  • SSI 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.[2]
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.[3]
  • 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.[4]

  • PlasmaBlade™ shows equivalent cutaneous healing to scalpel with better POSAS score than scalpel.[5]
  • Use of the PlasmaBlade™ has been shown to produce a 2.4-day reduction in drainage duration and 386ml reduction in mean drainage volume in Mastectomy.[6]
  • Use of the PlasmaBlade™ during bilateral breast reduction was associated with a significant decrease in operative time (10%; 37.24 ± 15.30 min versus 41.55 ± 11.61 min; p = 0.04) compared to traditional electrosurgery.[7]
PlasmaBlade™
  • In a tissue study of surgical margins, the PlasmaBlade™ was associated with a decrease in thermal injury, improving sample quality compared to traditional electrosurgery.[8]
  • Significantly more breast tissue was removed per minute: 20 ± 11 g/min during bilateral breast reduction when using the PlasmaBlade™ versus 16 ± 8 g/min for traditional electrosurgery, a 23.9% difference (p = 0.0002).[7]

  • 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.
  • Powered by a low-temperature LED, RadiaLux™ features four interchangeable blades optimized for access in advanced breast surgery. With a specially designed lens, light is directed towards the back of the surgical pocket in a unique radius improving visibility in the plane of dissection.
