Olympus has released its new Disposable Tonsil Adenoid Debrider (DTAD) monopolar energy device that works with standard generators.
The flexible shaver blade can be set for between 15° and 40° for easy targeting of tonsils and adenoids.
“By combining monopolar energy with a malleable shaver blade, Olympus’ unique DTAD allows the surgeon to cut and coagulate with a single device, reducing the need to exchange instruments,” says Sandra Tilden, Vice President of Marketing for Olympus’ Surgical Business. “DTAD also plugs into any standard monopolar generator so our customers can realize capital efficiencies by not having to purchase a new console.”
As a battery-powered device that also does not require irrigation or a dedicated console, DTAD makes faster setup time possible through “Plug and Play” implementation. In addition, distal suction allows the shaver blade to be used as a suction device for blood and fluid leading to better visualization of the surgical site.
