strumectomy

with the use of ThermoStapler®


strumectomy Collar skin incision. Coagulation of subcutaneous blood vessels with the use of bipolar forceps. Separating the muscles in order to provide access to the thyroid gland.

strumectomy 2 Sealing thyroid vessels with the use of ThermoStapler®. Cutting the vessels with the scissors.

strumectomy 3 Resection of the thyroid gland.

The ThermoStapler® vessel sealing system enables permanent sealing of large blood vessels and tissues during open and laparoscopic surgery.

The ThermoStapler® system, designed by EMED, is an alternative to the traditional vessel sealing method using many ligatures and staplers.

ThermoStapler® system is based on modern bipolar technique.


main advantages


  • physical pressure onto the vessel with the use of a special bipolar instrument
  • a generator administering high frequency and low voltage current which does not cause sparks during the sealing process
  • constant monitoring of the tissue impedance during the process of sealing
  • microprocessor control ensuring the repeated coagulation effect
  • automatic switch-off of the generator at the moment of achieving the optimal sealing of the vessel, confirmed with a sound signal

 


  • the possibility to select the level of intensity of the effect lower intensity means higher precision and depth of the coagulation, higher intensity means quicker final effect
  • the possibility to connect two different ThermoStapler® instruments or to combine the vessel sealing technique with a traditional bipolar technique
