The Olympus SurgMaster resectoscope is based on the award winning Olympus OES Pro standard resectoscope and enables the surgeon to perform TURis – resection in saline.
The Olympus SurgMaster resectoscope is based on the award winning Olympus OES Pro standard resectoscope and enables the surgeon to perform TURis – resection in saline. Only by exchanging the working element, HF cable and electrodes, Olympus OES Pro resectoscopes can be upgraded for resection in saline, supporting both, standard TUR and resection in saline. As a result, all great features of the OES Pro resectoscope also apply.
Reduced Risk for TUR syndrome
The Olympus SurgMaster resectoscope is used with a physiological saline for irrigation, thus significantly reducing the risk of a TUR syndrome. Conventional electrosurgery requires a non-ionic distension medium with the potential risk of more iatrogenic complications: hyponatraemia, pulmonary and cerebral oedema, and cardiac arrhythmias have all been reported from the use of glycine, sorbitol and manitol.
Gone are many risks of monopolar HF resection
An uncontrolled flow of current through the patient’s body, from the working electrode to the patient plate, is one of the major risks of conventional, monopolar electrosurgery. Olympus SurgMaster integrates both electrodes within the resectoscope. This minimizes the area of current flow, which significantly increases patient safety. In contrast to conventional monopolar resection, the SurgMaster system uses the HF energy to convert saline into electrical plasma including a high density of free electrical particles, which can cut tissue with exceptional precision. In addition to that, the reduced thermal spread results in a shallower coagulation effect and therefore less tissue charring.
