Early surgeon experience with PlasmaJet coagulation handpieces suggests that the system could play a valuable role in reducing the leakage of lymph in post-bariatric abdominoplasty.
Additionally, according to surgeon feedback, the efficient cutting capability with minimal damage to surrounding tissue suggests that the PlasmaJet system might be suitable in several further applications in Plastic Surgery:
- Drying the large tissue surfaces in abdominoplasty
- Excision of encapsulated breast implants
For more information on these potential benefits, please review the clinical papers on the use of PlasmaJet or request a discussion with one of our medical affairs professionals or clinical field specialists.
