The StraightshotTM M5 Microdebrider is an innovative powered handpiece for ENT surgery that helps improve intraoperative functionality and precision when incising or removing soft tissue, hard tissue, or bone. It is smaller, lighter and faster, with ergonomic engineering for balance and performance and is the first and only microdebrider capable of 30,000 rpm. It's powered by our multispecialty Integrated Power Console (IPC® System).
The Straightshot M5 Microdebrider lets you rotate only the tip of the curved blade during ENT surgery. This allows you to perform 360-degree cutting in the frontal sinuses, a more complete removal of polyps and mucin in the maxillary sinuses, and gain greater access to target tissue in the lateral and posterior areas of the airway.
A unique precision finger wheel control rotates the blade tip, while integrated suction helps keep the surgical site clear. Additionally, the sculpted shape accommodates multiple hand positions and provides ergonomic comfort for surgeons with large or small hands.
With better, more comfortable access to sinus and airway anatomy, ENT surgeons can perform a more precise, complete removal of obstructive or diseased tissue with the Straightshot M5 Microdebrider.
With built-in surgical navigation technology, StraightShot® M5 Microdebrider Automated EM Tracking Blades are the first and only factory-calibrated microdebrider blades for image-guided surgery.
