Radio surgery for all medical fields instead of a scalpel!
Radio frequency is an electric currency which is produced by the radio SURG® 2200 with a frequency of 2.2 MHz (2 200 000 cycles per second). This energy of 2.2 million cycles/sec. is concentrated at the tip of the electrode. As soon as the tissue is touched, the cell vaporizes. This is because the fluid of the cell expands, the cell explodes and vaporizes. The effect of cutting or coagulation occurs quicker with units working within the megahertz range and, therefore, does not thermally damage the surrounding area. The electrode is a conductor for the high frequency power only and does not become hot.
The radioSURG® 2200 is applicable for:
ENT surgery, Child & neonatal surgery, Dentistry, Dermatology, Esthetic-plasticsurgery, General surgery, Gynecology, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Oral & maxillofacial surgery, Orthopedics, Pediatrics, Phlebology, Plasticesthetic surgery, Podology, Proctology, Urology, Vascular surgery etc.
Advantages of correctly applied radio surgery:
• Clear and open operation area
• No delayed wound healing
• Relaxed working without pressure
• Sterile area of operation
• No interfering bleeding
• Preservation of tissue tautness
The advantages of megahertz units compared to kilohertz units
Fewer sparks – no burns:
With high frequency units it is possible to use smaller inductors – electronic components which can store electricity – in the generator, which results in smaller voltage peaks. The risk of light arcs, which can develop a heat of more than 1000 °C, is dramatically reduced. Therefore, burning, necrosis and infections do not occur.
Histo-pathological examination of a specimen. The voltage of the radioSURG® 2200 is regulated and is, therefore, constant during application (discrepancies of only ± 2%). Due to constant voltage it is possible to accomplish an excellent, clean cut, which barely differs from an incision made with a scalpel and which can be examined histo-pathologically.
Minimal risk of an electric shock:
Condensers (accumulator for electric energy) are incorporated into all high frequency units in order to prevent patients from the danger of continuous current flowing through their body. These condensers can discharge during surgery which leads to a sudden muscle convulsion and a short and intense pain. Within megahertz units, smaller condensers can be used, so the discharging is not noticeable and side effects such as muscle convulsion and sudden intense pain do not occur.
Minimized electric circuit resistance:
Units that have a higher frequency reach a constant and smaller electric circuit resistance between area of work and neutral electrode, therefore, units with a higher frequency ensure a safer conduction of the high frequency waves.
