CURIS® - Microsurgical Radiofrequency Generator
The microsurgical radiofrequency generator CURIS® made by Sutter Medizintechnik in Germany relies on the 4 MHz technology: It is gentle to the tissue and effective for coagulation, for lesions and for cutting. The patient trauma is reduced to a minimum.
Many Applications - one Unit
CURIS® Versatility in ENT
RaVoR™ (Radiofrequency Volume Reduction)
of the turbinates, soft palate, tongue base, etc. is an interstitial (i.e. „blind“) application: The surgeon has no visual feedback; for the desired outcome he solely relies on the system. A generator monitoring the tissue and adjusting power is a must. AutoRF™ is an intelligent mode with impedance control that will tailor the power output of the CURIS® to the tissue condition. As soon as the right size of a lesion has been achieved, the CURIS® generator will automatically stop the activation (AUTO STOP mode) and give an acoustic signal.
Audio Feedback System
If desired, an acoustic feedback function (AUDIO FEEDBACK) can be activated for additional safety. While a lesion is created, the change in tissue condition is signalled according to a predefined pitch: The further the lesion progresses, the higher the activation sound.
This mode may also be used to increase the patient’s comfort. He will be able to listen in and follow what happens inside his tissue.
CURIS® in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery
allows the tissue to heal with minimal postoperative pain and scarring.The degree of haemostasis is determined by the surgeon. It goes without saying that the CURIS® produces clear, clean cuts. This only works when the energy delivered is highly focussed and there is minimal lateral heat damage. A frequency of 4 MHz and AutoRF™ combine to create a homogenous electromagnetic field. For the unit to adjust to ever changing conditions during cutting skin, fat and muscle in one stroke, active performance control with AutoRF™ is able to ensure reproducible results.
Best possible coagulation results
according to the doctor’s requirements in two bipolar modes. For instruments with wider tips of 1 mm and more, the MACRO mode is ideal. The advantage of fine instruments – their precision – is enhanced by the PRECISE mode, which can be adjusted in steps of 0.5 watts. Its gentleness and characteristics guarantee safe coagulation results during subtle interventions and near sensitive structures.
