Top quality single-use suctions

A pioneering single-use Diathermy Abbey Needle with suction that helps surgeons improve performance and outcomes during a range of procedures is on show at this year’s Medica.

Developed by Single Use Surgical, the firm reports that the device improves visibility at the surgical site during submucosal diathermy (SMD), turbinectomy and breast surgery. ‘It offers a unique combination of precise cauterisation and targeted suction helping to remove surgical smoke and reduce the risks associated with reprocessing a reusable monopolar device,’ the firm explains.

Single Use Surgical was established in 2001 as a direct response to UK hospitals’ concerns over the cleaning practices involving fine lumen instruments, and how it posed a high risk of cross contamination between patients, the company points out. ‘Since then, it have developed the widest range of high quality and specialist single-use suctions capturing the same look, feel and functionality as the reusable equivalent.’ 

The manufacturer makes products with stainless steel tubes rather than aluminium, which, it reports, has helped it to become a leading single-use medical device specialist. The range spans many specialties including ENT, head and neck, gynaecology, laparoscopy, general and vascular surgery.
