Gastroenterology

The maxium® electrosurgical unit with its additional argon unit has more than proven its worth in gastroenterology. The maxium® offers more than 8 different types of current for this discipline.

The maxium® is operated using a single multi-functional rotary switch. All set parameters are shown on an extra large display for easy monitoring. All controls have been optimized through scientific usability testing.

MABS Snare probes are combination probes, allowing you to remove polyps with subsequent argon coagulation of the site. The great advantage of these probes: you do not need to exchange instruments for performing the coagulation in a second step. Following ablation, you just pull the snare back into the instrument to use the probe as a "normal" MABS beam probe.

Moreover, the probe can be conveniently used in this way for coagulating/vaporizing small polyps. Additional coagulation following polypectomy cuts the recurrence rate. The application areas of Snare probes include:

  • Stomach ulcers
  • Esophagus
  • Angiodysplasia
  • Hemostasis in diffuse bleeding
  • Conditioning prior to fistula closure
  • Hemostasis following polypectomy
