Codman & Shurtleff, Inc. (Codman) will be the exclusive distributor of Disposable SPETZLER™-MALIS® Non-stick Bipolar Forceps, manufactured by Synergetics™ USA, Inc., effective December 1, 2009 in the U.S. and worldwide starting February 1, 2010, expanding Codman’s three-year distribution agreement with Synergetics.
Bipolar forceps are an essential instrument that neurosurgeons use in coagulating tissue during surgery. SPETZLER-MALIS Bipolar Forceps feature an ergonomic design that provides excellent visualization and control, which is especially important when operating on deep-seated tumors or vascular structures, and during skull-based neurosurgery.
These forceps will be offered alongside Codman's ISOCOOL® Bipolar Forceps with ACTIVE HEAT TRANSFER™ technology, designed for procedures that require critically precise temperature control to allow for precise coagulation, potentially minimizing damage to surrounding tissue, and reducing sticking and charring during coagulation.
