The Aquamantys System from Medtronic Advanced Energy


Aquamantys™ bipolar sealers  combine radiofrequency (RF) energy and saline to provide hemostatic sealing of soft tissue and bone without the smoke or char found in other methods. The combination of RF energy and saline allows the device to operate at approximately 100˚C — nearly 200˚C less than traditional electrosurgical devices.1


Aquamantys™ bipolar sealers harness proprietary technology to provide hemostatic sealing of soft tissue and bone during a variety of surgical procedures, including total knee arthroplasty, total hip arthroplasty, spine surgery, orthopedic trauma cases and surgical oncology procedures.

Product detail

Achieving hemostatis

The Transcollation effect - transforming collagen

  1. RF energy and saline are applied to tissue, generating heat.
  2. Heat-induced collagen shrinkage occurs, mantaining temperature at ~100ºC.
  3. Vessels ˂1 mm may be occluded, reducing bleeding.
