Aquamantys™ Bipolar Sealers

The Aquamantys System from Medtronic Advanced Energy

The Aquamantys™ bipolar sealers feature innovative Transcollation™ technology, a combination of radiofrequency (RF) energy and saline that provides hemostatic sealing of soft tissue and reduces transfusion rates when used during general surgery.1,* Our devices are commonly used in procedures such as liver resection, partial nephrectomy, and pancreatectomy procedures. The use of Transcollation technology results in less charring than other methods.

The PEAK PlasmaBlade Device for General Surgery

Based on innovative proprietary technology, the PlasmaBlade device is a tissue dissection system that represents an important advance in radiofrequency (RF) surgical technologies. PlasmaBlade devices offer the precise control of a scalpel and the bleeding control of traditional electrosurgery, without the extensive collateral tissue damage.1,*

The PlasmaBlade is used in a variety of general surgery procedures, such as mastectomy, lumpectomy, quadrantectomy, axillary and sentinel lymph node dissection, and breast reconstruction.
