Codman Neuro, a part of DePuy Synthes, itself a Johnson & Johnson firm, has unveiled the SPETZLER MALIS Dual Irrigating Disposable Non-Stick Bipolar Forceps. These are the first disposable dual-irrigated forceps specifically designed for use in neurosurgery. There’s a fluid channel within each of the forceps’ fingers that helps improve irrigation coverage and aids in keep the working area clear and easily accessible during electrosurgery. Additionally, the coating of the new forceps is the same as that found on SPETZLER MALIS Disposable Bipolar Forceps that prevents coagulation around the working site.
“The dual irrigation design is ideal for working with arteriovenous malformations and vascular tumors as they keep the tips and vessels moist enhancing their nonstick properties, and the
transparent fine tubing provides better visualization,” said neurosurgeon Robert Spetzler, MD, FACS, Director, Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona, in a statement. “The SPETZLER MALIS Disposable Bipolar Forceps line has been designed to be nonstick, low profile, and provide great tactile feedback.”
