Disposable Electrode for Bariatric Procedures

The first 45-cm disposable laparoscopic electrode with patented E-Z Clean PTFE-coated electrosurgical tip for bariatric procedures has been introduced. E-Z Clean is a patented, green nonstick coating. E-Z clean tips minimize eschar build up and are used with lower power settings, which reduces excess smoke and thermal necrosis.

The 45-cm electrodes come in four tip configurations: curved, L-hook, J-hook and L-wire for use on procedures where additional length is indicated such as gastric bypass and gastric banding. All are available in hand- activated and foot control versions.
