Quantum

The CUT function is a QMR induced breakage of molecular bonds at less than 45/50°C2.

The COAGULATION occurs when the QMR activates the denaturation process of fibrinogen protein to form fibrin with temperatures of 60 – 70°C 4,5.

 

Applications:

  • Tonsillectomy and Tonsil reduction
  • Turbinate reduction
  • Uvulopalatoplasty
  • Tongue base reduction
  • Polyposis aspiration
  • Adenoidectomy
  • Phonosurgery
  • Middle ear microsurgery for cholesteatoma
  • Nasal teleangiectasis
  • Neck surgery

Features

  • Safe2
  • Bipolar and monopolar output
  • Wide range of disposable electrodes
  • Re-usable non-stick Bipolar forceps and Bipolar scissors
  • Concurrent coagulation and tissue dissection 7
  • Impedance feedback to alert for coagulation

Advantages

  • No necrotic tissue or thermal damage2
  • Precise, undamaged histological examinations
  • Less post operative pain1
  • Reduced duration of surgery3,7
  • Decreaseed intra-operative blood loss
  • Precise removal of tissue in a practically bloodless field2
  • No irrigation or saline solution required
