Hemostatix

Thermal Scalpel

 

The Hemostatix Thermal Scalpel

Minimize patient blood loss and damage by achieving hemostasis with the ultimate surgical precision, visualization, and control.

 

The Hemostatix Thermal Scalpel from C2Dx enables precise anatomical dissection and immediate hemostasis with its surgically sharp scalpel blade. The result is a dry, clean surgical field which provides exceptional visualization for the safe dissection of nerves and critical anatomy.

Formerly known as the Shaw Scalpel, the thermal scalpel features a 5-layer laminate composition of copper and stainless steel. Prioritize safety with no muscle excitation, minimum damage to surrounding tissue, and reduced blood loss.

“The Shaw Scalpel has become an indispensable part of my surgical technique. It minimizes blood loss for the patient, maximizes my surgical efficiency, and nicely preserves visibility during my dissection. It has a limited radius of energy dispersion which is essential for working in the crowded anatomy of the neck where many important nerves and other structures are in close proximity.”

Immediate Hemostasis

Advanced micro-electric circuitry applied to the blade surface enables immediate heating to a maximum of 300 degrees Celsius.

No Electro-conductivity

Patient is insulated from electric current without the need for a grounding pad.

Tactile Feedback

Surgeon retains control of blade temperature, incision angle and rate, pressure, and delivery of thermal energy through the scalpel handle.

Perform Fine Dissection

Retain fine dissection and nerve preservation without capillary oozing, blood loss, or fear of neuropraxia by achieving immediate operative hemostasis

 

A clean surgical field gives complete visualization of nerves, vessels, and critical anatomical structures.

  • Precise tissue incision equivalent to cold scalpel
  • Incises with low-drag in all tissue types
  • Minimizes collateral thermal damage to nearby vital structures
  • Reduces operating time to both cut and coagulate tissue
  • Decreases depth of necrosis at surface of incision
 

Prioritize Surgical Safety

Minimize patient blood loss and tissue damage, and contribute to the move toward a smoke-free operating room

 

  • Eliminates possibility of electrical tissue stimulation
  • Avoids interference with Pacemakers, Implantable Defibrillators, and Cochlear implants
  • Avoids electrical current flow to tissue and unwanted collateral electrical tissue injury
  • No grounding pad required
  • Doesn’t require smoke evacuation
