The extended tips, which are 130 mm in length, consist of a 5 millimeter extended shaft that offers deeper reach and better visibility in surgical procedures, compared to existing FMwand Surgical Tips. The extended tips are available in a variety of incising loop configurations that are ideal for a broad range of surgical procedures.
"The development of these extended surgical tips was in direct response to requests from leading surgeons across the country," said David McNally, president and CEO of Domain Surgical. "We have been thrilled with the reception of the FMwand to date, and are excited to bring additional options to our product line to further expand the utility of the device for an even greater number of surgeons and sub-specialties."
The extended tips expand opportunities for the FMwand to be used in a broad range of new surgical procedures involving deeper and harder to reach tissue. The new surgical tips join the company's existing product line of 55 mm and 75 mm surgical tips.
The FMwand is a hemostatic dissection device that uses thermal energy to cut and coagulate tissue, without passing an electrical current through the patient. Because the FMwand cuts and coagulates with pure thermal energy, it has been shown to be safe and effective for dissecting around delicate tissues and structures such as nerves and blood vessels. The FMwand minimizes collateral tissue damage, causing as little as 1/10th the depth of thermal damage compared to standard electrocautery in some tissue types, preserving more viable, healthy tissue beyond the incisional plane.
