The PROCISE◊ MLW plasma wand is designed for precise, controlled removal of laryngeal lesions. Its ultra-slim Wand shaft provides access to the trachea and makes it well-suited for operating on small anatomy.
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
Features of the PROCISE MLW Wand:
- Single-wire electrode to provide “pinpoint” precision for lesion removal near delicate patient anatomy in laryngeal and tracheal procedures
- Extended length and ultra-slim Wand shaft for improved access to subglottic anatomy (19cm working length) and increased visualization of surgical field
