Overview

Putting consistency in your hands1,2

Introducing the latest advancement in the Valleylab™ energy family — the Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform.

A true next-generation electrosurgical solution, the Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform is powered by our intelligent TissueFect™ tissue-sensing technology. So it reads tissue composition to monitor and adjust to impedance as you work.([FOOTNOTE=Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform part #PT00053621 [user guide]. Boulder, CO: Medtronic. June 2017.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Based on report #RE00034263 Rev F, Product requirements document for project Kirin. July 2017.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Now your electrosurgical devices can adapt to produce consistent clinical tissue effects — in real time.([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #RE00077924, Marketing evaluation of the Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform: surgeon report. June 2017.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),‡

Features

The Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform drives electrosurgical handpieces with precision using lower levels of energy.1,2 It’s designed to support a wide range of surgical procedures that require division, hemostasis, and dissection.

Along with cut, coag, and soft coag modes, the Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform enables two unique modes that can bring new possibilities to your procedures:

  • Valleylab™ mode provides a unique combination of monopolar hemostasis and division2,([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #RE0068753, A quantitative comparison to conventional monopolar electrosurgery: L-hook monopolar drag force measurements. March 2017.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report # RE00115057, Monopolar performance of Valleylab™ mode on the Valleylab™ FT10 Energy Platform. Sept 2017.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Shared coag mode allows two surgeons to work on the same patient at the same time — from a single energy platform

Plus, the Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform delivers:

  • Precise monopolar and bipolar energy1,2
  • Power control during monopolar energy delivery that’s five times better than the ForceTriad™ energy platform1,2,††
  • Tissue monitoring that’s 2,600 times faster than the Force FX™ electrosurgical generator4,([FOOTNOTE=Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform part # PT00046835_A [service guide].

  • Appropriate thermal spread([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #RE00092272 Rev A, FX8 validation: nurse and surgeon report. June 2017.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

Technology

Intelligent — inside and out

On the inside, the Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform uses TissueFect™ tissue-sensing technology to monitor changes in tissue impedance — in real-time — at 434,000 times per second.1,2 It adjusts energy output to deliver the appropriate amount of power to your handpieces for the desired tissue effect.3,4

On the outside, we designed the Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform for straightforward operation in the OR. Next-generation features include:

  • A smart, simple, and intuitive interface5,Ω
  • Simple controls and information displays5
  • The flexibility of the Valleylab™ Exchange software update system, which allows you to upgrade to new features using the internet3,4

  • †Compared to the ForceTriad™ energy platform.

  • ‡12 out of 20 surgeons surveyed agreed and 8 didn’t know.

  • §20 out of 20 surgeons surveyed agreed.

  • Ω17 of 20 surgeons agreed that the Valleylab™ FX8 energy platform is smart, simple, and designed with an intuitive interface. Three surgeons didn’t know or could not reply to this question.

  • ††Based on internal comparison testing of the Valleylab™ FT10 and ForceTriad™ generators. Valleylab™ FT10 has identical power curves and equivalent power delivery for shared modes to the Valleylab™ FX8 - RE00105221 - 07/2017.
