COBLATION◊ technology can be used for removing or debulking a variety of polyps, lesions, and tumors in the larynx and trachea. In addition, recent studies about airway fires suggest, under normal operating circumstances, using COBLATION technology in place of traditional electrosurgical or laser devices significantly reduces the risk of igniting an airway fire.1,2,3
The PROCISE◊ LW plasma wand is an ideal tool for controlled removal of bulky lesions. With its malleable Wand shaft, the PROCISE LW wand offers versatility in surgical approach.
Features of the PROCISE LW Wand:
- Screen electrode to swiftly debulk targeted tissue during laryngeal surgical procedures
- Malleable Wand shaft to adapt to surgical preference and patient anatomy
