New Disposable Tonsil Adenoid Debrider (DTAD) monopolar energy device that works with standard generators has just been released by Olympus.
The device is battery powered and allows for the shaver blade to be adjusted between 15° and 40°. This makes it convenient to target tonsils and adenoids.
"By combining monopolar energy with a malleable shaver blade, Olympus' unique DTAD allows the surgeon to cut and coagulate with a single device, reducing the need to exchange instruments. DTAD also plugs into any standard monopolar generator so our customers can realize capital efficiencies by not having to purchase a new console," said Sandra Tilden, Vice President of Marketing for Olympus Surgical Business.
