January 29, 2008 - To help ease the hand fatigue experienced by many surgeons during electrosurgery procedures, MEGADYNE recently announced the availability of its new line of reusable suction coagulators with a larger, ergonomic handle.
The company says the devices are good for ear, nose and throat procedures. MEGADYNE's suction coagulators are available in French sizes, 8, 10 and 12 to better enable the surgeon to correctly match the coagulator to the size of the patientï¿½s anatomy and surgical procedure being performed.
Available in both hand switching and foot controlled options, the coagulator is fully insulated to reduce the likelihood of injury to surrounding structures and tissues and its integrated guard prevents user shocks. The hand-controlled versions have a tactile switch so the surgeon is assured when the pencil has been activated.
The devices also feature easy-to-bend cannula enabling precise application, a finger-controlled suction vent, universal suction port that holds 1/4-inch or 3/16-inch tubing securely, hand-controlled versions have a tactile activation switch, and a safety holster that complies with AORN electrosurgery safety specifications.
