Now there is a complete solution which allows your doctor complete your procedure within approximately 5 minutes.2,††
This new technology could help you to recover faster with less post op bleeding2 compared to other techniques.1,2
The tonsillectomy device is designed specifically for tonsillectomies to follow the shape of the tonsil bed.
The tonsillectomy device:
The Medtronic tonsillectomy device uses advanced bipolar energy to permanently seal vessels when removing the tonsils. It’s powered by energy platforms that continuously measures the impedance of the clamped tissue and adjusts the energy levels to maintain the desired tissue effect. It automatically stops the energy delivery when the seal is complete.
† Krishnan study uses an median value when analyzing the operative time. The Vangelis G. Alexiou, Mary Sheryll Salazar-Salvia study uses average analysis when analyzing operative time.
†† BiZact™ tonsillectomy allows for a shortened operative time in the hands of both experienced and training surgeons with a median time of 5.1 minutes (range 1.5 – 26.5 minutes).
