Endobronchial Shaver Blades
Work in interventional bronchoscopy is carried out in conditions with very narrow lumens, therefore, it is an area of precision, where every usable centimeter is helpful. Exophytic tumors often close off the main bronchi. If patients present with this kind of clinical picture, an experienced pulmonogist is capable of carrying out tissue ablation. Alongside the existing methods applied for endobronchial ablation, these resections can be carried out effortlessly with the new shaver blades.
Endobronchial Shaver Blades are different versions of rotary blades, which are connected to the Micro Stick S1 handle. Integrated suction in the handle removes collected tissue ablated at the distal end of the blade. This works rather like a “conveyor belt” and it allows viscous secretions to be easily removed. The set is completed with a bipolar suction device used for coagulation.
The Shaver Blades, the Remover and the bipolar suction device have been specially designed to integrate with the Richard Wolf TEXAS Bronchoscope. Naturally, these components can also be used with conventional rigid bronchoscopes.
- Extra sharp cutting surfaces, serrated or smooth
- Curved upward at the distal end—for a better view of the shaver tip in the endoscopic image
- Rotation of 360°
- Special coating for the inner blade which improves smooth-running
- Innovative secretion removal; removing thick, viscous secretions or coagulated blood via the complementary Secretion Remover
- Bipolar suction device—simultaneous suction and coagulation
- CO2 channel for the tracheoscope tubes
- Low weight shaver handle
- Time-effective, precision removal
