The low and high power settings, or FMmin and FMmax, provide the surgeon with increased flexibility during complex surgical procedures. The surgical team sets the independent FMmin and FMmax power settings on the generator to the desired levels, and the surgeon is then able to instantly activate and toggle between either mode using a dual button handpiece or foot pedal, helping to quickly achieve the desired tissue effect without impacting the pace of surgery.
"The new FMmin and FMmax modes were developed to maximize dissecting speed and efficiency in the operating room," said David McNally, president and CEO of Domain Surgical. "The dual power settings allow the FMwand to be efficiently used in more ways during surgical procedures than previously possible. The ability to quickly toggle between user-selected high and low settings puts complete control of thermal tissue effect in the hands of the surgeon."
When using the FMwand during surgery, lower power settings are ideal for spot cautery, dividing fine tissue membranes or delicate tissue blanching, while higher power settings are used for faster dissection of thick or fibrous tissues and removal of tumors.
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.
