PlasmaBlade dissection devices are the all-in-one solution for precise, effective and efficient dissection.1,3,4SEE MORE AT MEDTRONIC ACADEMY
With a 99.5%-insulated electrode, PlasmaBlade dissection devices precisely concentrate and deliver radiofrequency energy to cut and coagulate soft tissue.
Proprietary insulation technology and steady thermal control enable surgeons to cut with the precision of a scalpel and the bleeding control of traditional electrosurgery — while producing minimal thermal damage to surrounding tissue.1,2,3

PlasmaBlade dissection devices offer an unmatched combination of capabilities and research — empowering surgical procedures, enhancing outcomes, and improving value.3, 5, 6
All PlasmaBlade devices offer:
Additionally, certain PlasmaBlade models have been customized to meet specific surgeon needs, with features such as:
PlasmaBlade X Device Family
PlasmaBlade ENT Device Family
PlasmaBlade Plus Device
PlasmaBlade Needle Device
PlasmaBlade dissection devices use less total energy and operate at significantly lower temperatures than traditional electrosurgery, resulting in less thermal damage to surrounding tissue.1, 3, 8*
