Product Information - Plasma Edge
The Only True Bipolar Resection System
If the prostate becomes enlarged, it can put pressure on the bladder and/or urethra causing symptoms that can affect urination.
A transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) is a surgical procedure that involves cutting away a section of the prostate. If the prostate becomes enlarged (BPH) TURP is often recommended if the patient fails to respond to treatment with medication.
As well as offering a true bipolar system for TURP's, Plasma Edge offers the thinnest cutting loop on the market, which is perfect for the removal of Bladder Tumours (TURB). Because of the thin cut, there is less risk of perforating the bladder wall.
The Plasma Edge System
The Plasma Edge offers a true Bipolar Resection System. The Plasma Edge has been designed with the simple fact:
A bipolar system has to be as efficient in CUT and COAGULATION as a classic monopolar system.
Plasma Edge offers all the bipolar benefits with the same efficiency and rapidity of a classic monopolar system.
A bipolar system offers an extremely safe power solution by completely integrating the electric current inside the electrode. This is unique to Plasma edge
Plasma Edge Power
With Lamidey Noury Medical's 65 years experience in the electrosurgical field, they have been able to produce the finest and most efficient plasma resection, the Edge.
- Instant plasma activation even on small tissue
- The best coagulation effect in bipolar technology
- Low average power requirement
- Auto-cleaning ability, with quick cut activation
Key Benefits of the Plasma Edge
- Excellent coagulation effect - The two poles of the electrodes are close together, this means the power is more concentrated and power leakage is limited.
- Tissues remain white - There is less thermal damage and tissues are not carbonised during the procedure
- Low post-operative bleeding - Plasma Edge provides a deeper haemostasis effect
- Less patient irritation - Because of the deeper, more powerful cut there is no burning of tissues resulting in post-operative irritation
- Possible reduced length of stay in hospital after procedure - 3 days average with monopolar, compared to 1 day with bipolar (Plasma Edge)
- Uses a saline solution rather than glycine solution - Glycine solution can/may be absorbed by the patient via the prostatic venous sinuses during a TURP procedure. This absorption can cause TUR syndrome, potentially life-threatening complication.
