Medtronic offers additional products for general surgery and surgical oncology, such as the Aquamantys® System and PEAK PlasmaBlade™ device.
The Aquamantys System and 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.
Learn more about the Aquamantys System and bipolar sealers with Transcollation technology for general surgery.
Based on innovative proprietary technology, the PEAK PlasmaBlade device is a tissue dissection system that represents an important advance in radiofrequency (RF) surgical technologies. PEAK PlasmaBlade devices offer the precise control of a scalpel and the bleeding control of traditional electrosurgery, without the extensive collateral tissue damage.1,*
The PEAK PlasmaBlade System is used in a variety of general surgery procedures, such as mastectomy, lumpectomy, quadrantectomy, axillary and sentinel lymph node dissection, and breast reconstruction.
