Electroshield takes sting out of electrosurgery:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Pfizer subsidiary Valleylab has developed an earthed shielding system to overcome surface capacitive coupling effects on laparoscopic electrosurgical instruments. The tubular shields go over a range of other manufacturers' instruments and protect against insulation failure - which can cause serious burns to non-target tissue. Valleylab has also developed a range of instruments with built-in protection. The company showed a computer-controlled electrocautery, which adjusts automatically to cut with the minimum of energy and which was launched six weeks ago.
