Septoplasty and Turbinate Reduction
The TURBINATOR Wand using COBLATION plasma technology reduces hypertrophic turbinate submucosally and provides hemostasis with its built-in bipolar coagulation feature. Designed to clear the surgical site of ablated tissue, the TURBINATOR Wand provides immediate, visible removal of submucosal tissue via its integrated suction capabilities. Saline is pumped into the turbinate through the Wand’s saline delivery ports to ensure production of consistent, efficient plasma. The plasma ablates submucosal tissue which is then removed through the wand’s tip.
The REFLEX ULTRA wands accommodate diverse turbinate anatomy. Immediate tissue removal helps ensure efficient procedures, while the continuous postoperative contraction and tissue shrinkage promote ideal healing.
Conventional techniques for septoplasty can involve suturing of patients’ nasal passages and the placement of splints, which can potentially be painful upon removal. The ENTACT Septal Stapler is a single-use system that helps surgeons to achieve consistent and efficient flap closure with a bioresorbable staple.
