Olympus is a world-class leader in providing state-of-the-art optics technology in the medical field and beyond. The Olympus Plasma portfolio provides safe, cost-efficient and easy-to-use solutions for TUR tissue management procedural needs.
The newest Plasma electrode, the Plasma-OvalButton, is a revolutionary vaporization electrode. Its shape, combined with an easy-to-learn vaporization technique, results in smooth, well-coagulated tissue. Plasma Vaporization and Resection is safely performed in saline, reducing the risk of TUR syndrome, while the plasma corona results in minimal thermal spread, affecting only localized tissue.
What is Plasma?
Plasma is an electrically conductive gas cloud that is created by the combination of radio frequency, energy and saline. It is made of vapor and charged particles called ions (atoms that have an electric charge). Due to its conductivity, the plasma allows the energy to cross at lower energy levels. This effect leads to lower operating temperatures and as a result, less thermal spread.
Clinical benefits of the Olympus Plasma portfolio include:
The Olympus Plasma Vaporization and Resection electrodes are also designed to provide efficiency in the operating room (OR) and have been shown to decrease procedure and recovery time, making it a cost-efficient procedural solution.1
