Technology

The technology offers a two-fold benefit over conventional monopolar and bipolar devices:

  • Unique technology provides precise heating and division of target tissue, minimizing thermal spread.
  • No electrical current is required to pass through the patient allowing for fully functional nerve monitoring during procedures1.

Microline Surgical provides ENT surgeons with precision, safety, and confidence in their procedures.
