ISOCOOL® Bipolar Foreceps are a revolutionary instrument designed for procedures requiring critically precise temperature control to reduce sticking and charring while coagulating.
The ISOCOOL Bipolar Forceps (handles and tips) when used as part of a system including bipolar electrosurgical generator are indicated for cauterizing, coagulating, grasping and manipulating tissue during general surgery, neurosurgery, ENT surgery, OB/GYN surgery, and maxillofacial/plastic surgery procedures. The ISOCOOL Forceps are also indicated for cauterizating, coagulating, grasping. and manipulating soft tissue during spine surgery and orthopaedic surgery.
Indications for use in OB/GYN surgery exclude contraceptive coagulation of fallopian tube tissue.
Active heat transfer (AHT) inside the heat pipe enables a continuous cycle of vaporization, transport, condensation, and return.
The heat pipe consists of a vacuum-sealed tube injected with a small amount of two-phase working fluid. The heat generated at the distal end of the tip is immediately drawn into the tube's fluid and vaporized at the point of heat input. Here's how it works:
The vapor travels due to the positive pressure gradient created by the vaporization to the proximal end of the tube, where the vapor condenses into the wicking structure.
The wicking structure allows the cooled, condensed working fluid to return to the distal end of the tip by capillary action, even working against gravity.
