ELECTROTHERMAL

ARTHROSCOPY SYSTEM

ELECTROTHERMAL arthroscopy system

Overview

The Smith & Nephew ELECTROTHERMAL ARTHROSCOPY SYSTEM is the most versatile electrothermal system available for arthroscopists, offering the widest range of tissue modification devices for temperature control, cutting, and simultaneous soft tissue resection and coagulation ablation applications. In addition, integrated cables increase O.R. efficiency by eliminating cable sterilization and storage requirements. Autoprobe recognition enhances user convenience by taking the guess work out of setting selection.

Applications - Offering surgeons the widest choice in RF tissue modification tools

ELECTROBLADE Resector

Shoulder

  • Subacromial decompression
  • Synovectomy
  • CA Ligament removal

Knee

  • Menisectomy
  • Monopolar and Bipolar Ablation: The only system providing surgeons with a choice of RF ablation energy delivery modes.
  • Thermal Shrinkage in the Shoulder: Advanced monopolar temperature control program, optimized for ligamentous soft tissue, delivers consistent, reproducible thermal effect.
  • Articular Cartilage Sculpting: Direct temperature feedback with automatic power control can significantly reduce thermal penetration depths when treating articular cartilage.
  • Simultaneous Soft Tissue Resection and Coagulation: Reduces products in the O.R. by combining key features of RF wands and blades.
  • Ligament Resection: Unmatched precision in cutting and coagulation with the LIGAMENT CHISEL Probes.
  • Unique Hip Applications: DYONICS EFLEX hip probes with a deflectable tip enable access to areas that are difficult to reach with conventional instrumentation.
  • Expanded Access in Small Joints: Extensive line of maneuverable, micro-sized ablation, cutting and temperature control probes expand access to a variety of small joint procedures.

For advanced control in soft tissue modification, choose the ELECTROTHERMAL ARTHROSCOPY SYSTEM (EAS) - only from Smith & Nephew a world leader in arthroscopy.
