Medtronic has introduced Aquamantys Mini EVS 3.4 Epidural Vein Sealer to manage hemostasis during minimally invasive spine surgeries.
The Mini Vein Sealer optimizes visibility and aids in controlling epidural bleeding by enabling prophylactic compression and treating epidural veins before they begin to bleed.
The Sealer’s insulated shaft enables simultaneous retraction and electrode use near sensitive tissue such as dura and nerve roots.
Its 3.4 mm tip size allows for use in procedures with small epidural access points.
Medtronic Surgical Technologies business president Mark Fletcher said the Mini EVS 3.4 is the latest addition to a growing Transcollation spine portfolio and will give surgeons greater choice and flexibility as they strive to prevent and treat intra-operative blood loss.
