Canady Hybrid Plasma™ Scalpel

With Canady Hybrid Plasma™ Technology

Utilizing USMI’s electrosurgical plasma system (Canady Plasma®), The Canady Hybrid Plasma™ Scalpel delivers a Hybrid Plasma beam less than 1.0mm in diameter and a depth of injury as low as 0.1mm, integrating a high frequency monopolar current with an inert plasma gas that simultaneously cuts and coagulates biological tissue. The Canady Hybrid Plasma™ Scalpel may help to decrease tissue damage1, blood loss, surgical time, transfusion rates and total knee replacement tourniquet use.2,3
