Delivering differentiation that matters, so you may ablate efficiently.

Combining proprietary technology that enables faster ablation1,2 at equal1 / lower2 temperature versus tested leading competitors, along with a comprehensive electrode portfolio to optimize anatomic access, our robust VAPR VUE® Radiofrequency System means you can resect soft tissue quickly.

The VAPR VUE Radiofrequency System is designed to provide effective and efficient soft tissue ablation (vaporization), contouring, cutting and hemostasis of blood vessels during arthroscopic surgical procedures and is comprised of the following components (sold separately):

  • VAPR VUE Radiofrequency Generator
  • VAPR® System Electrodes
  • VAPR VUE Wireless Footswitch or VAPR System Wired Footswitch

Due to the broad VAPR System Electrode portfolio, surgeons have access to high-quality RF ablation tools for use across a wide-range of arthroscopic surgical procedures, including rotator cuff repair, subacromial decompression, shoulder instability, ACL and PCL repair and more.
