PlasmaBlade™

The PlasmaBlade™ is a precise dissection device using very brief pulses of radiofrequency (RF) energy for the cutting and coagulation of soft tissue during surgical procedures.

The RF energy, combined with a proprietary insulation technology, enables the PlasmaBlade™ to dissect with the precision of a scalpel, and the bleeding control of traditional electrosurgery, while producing minimal thermal damage to surrounding tissue. Clinical research has demonstrated that low thermal injury technology offers intra-operative and post-operative benefits when compared to the current standard of care — scalpel and traditional electrosurgery.[1,2,3]

Plasmablade Dissection Temperature vs Traditional Electrosurgery

Benefits

  • Lower temperature
    Demonstrated a 64% average reduction in blade temperature (40–170°C) for similar CUT settings, and a 45% average reduction for similar COAG settings when compared to traditional electrosurgery (200–350°C)[1]

  • Incision healing
    Equivalent cutaneous healing to scalpel.[4] Significantly reduced thermal injury depth and scar width compared to traditional electrosurgery[5]

  • Increased efficiency
    Maintains cutting effectiveness and haemostatic ability even when submerged in liquefied tissue or blood, unlike traditional electrosurgical tools[6]

  • Reduced surgical smoke
    Less surgical smoke,[7] allowing for increased visibility

  • Reduced risk
    Eliminates risk of inadvertent scalpel injury

Operating temperature is a function of device settings, electrode configuration and treatment time. Operating temperatures outside this range may be observed.
