According to Olympus, their DIEGO ELITE Multidebrider is the world’s only ENT system to offer both monopolar and bipolar energy blades for hemostasis – as well as traditional standard shaver blades. Applications include sinus surgery, polypectomy, tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy, inferior turbinate reduction and laryngeal applications. It aims at offering ENT specialists a full array of surgery options using just one device. Approximately 1,333,000 sinus surgeries to eliminate blockages causing sinus pain and impaired breathing are performed in the U.S. each year. These surgeries often require a wide variety of cutting blades and tools. Procedures powered by the DIEGO ELITE Multidebrider offer:
- Faster tissue removal, compared to DIEGO, of up to 27 percent due to minimal clogging and less need for instrument exchange.
- A 12 percent reduction in procedure time - leading to reduced OR time and operating costs.
- Better bleeding control with the use of over standard blades.
The DIEGO ELITE Multidebrider further expedites surgeries and procedural efficiency with features such as a toggle stop to quickly open or close the blade window, dedicated suction, a convenient bulb for easier de-clogging during the procedure, choice of ergonomic hand pieces suited to physician preference, and a blade ID feature that ensures every time a new blade is plugged in, the device will default to the recommended setting for that blade.
