Radiofrequency technology in the ENT surgery
Bipolar high frequency technology has been used in ENT medicine for many years to ensure that blood vessels are closed – during surgeries as well as in the ENT outpatients’ clinic (e.g. for epistaxis). Developments of new device features - in particular increased electric field frequency - provide new opportunities for treatment in the areas of throat, nose, pharynx and ear as a result of the precise cutting function. The electrodes are individually primed for the application and facilitate the handling of the radiofrequency surgical device with minimal tissue stress. Apart from the precise cutting function, radio frequency technology also provides new applications in the area of coagulation: special bipolar electrodes are used to reduce the volume of the nasal concha and to stiffen the soft palate. The radio frequency energy may be stopped automatically during bipolar coagulation as soon as the required tissue resistance has been achieved. The ATMOS® RS 221 ENT provides the new opportunities in radiofrequency surgery that are ideal for use in ENT medicine. This makes handling easier for the doctor and if applied correctly, there are fewer risks of secondary bleeding for the patient and faster wound healing.
