Smith and Nephew Endoscopy has introduced it Dyonics 9000 ElectroBlade resector, which can allow surgeons to resect and coagulate soft tissue simultaneously. The device combines traditional mechanical blades with bipolar radiofrequency technology, and could reduce the need to pause to change or rotate an instrument during an operation, says the Andover, Massachusetts firm. It is intended for use in a variety of arthroscopic procedures, where the capacity to provide a clear field of vision during surgery could lessen the overall operating time.
