PLASMA HYSTEROSCOPIC RESECTION
During gynecologic procedures, the Olympus 8.5-mm hystero-resectoscope uses a combination of radio frequency, energy, and saline to create plasma, an electrically conductive gas cloud of vapor and charged particles. Due to its conductivity, plasma allows energy to cross into targeted tissue at lower energy levels than with more traditional approaches. This effect leads to lower operating temperatures and therefore less thermal spread.
