From a fast and easy setup7,₤ to reliable seals that reduce intraoperative bleeding,1-3,† the BiZact™ device improves efficiency throughout procedures.1,7-10,‡ With a low energy profile and minimal tissue damage,4-6 patients may also experience less pain after surgery.4-6,§
Compared to published literature on the rate of intraoperative bleeding in tonsillectomy using electrosurgery, the Coblator™* instrument, and cold knife, the BiZact™ device reduces bleeding during surgery.1-3,†
The BiZact™ device is also easier to set up than the Coblator™* instrument.7,₤
The BiZact™ device is an advanced bipolar tissue sealer and divider. It’s powered by Valleylab™ energy platforms that:
† Average intraoperative bleeding in 17 cases was 7.3 mL for BiZact™ device, compared to published literature results for Coblator™* device (10.83 mL) and electrocautery (27.08 mL),2 and cold knife (125 mL).3
‡ Average procedure time in 17 cases for the BiZact™ tonsillectomy device was 9.35 minutes, compared to published literature results for electrocautery (14.8 minutes pediatric, 20.5 minutes adult)8 and the Coblator™* device (16.32 minutes).9
§ Low thermal damage has been shown in published studies to result in less postoperative pain. The Bizact™ device has been shown to produce <1 mm thermal spread, but has not been directly evaluated for pain reduction.
