Microline Surgical’s patented Thermal Fusion technology utilizes direct heat and pressure to delicately seal and divide soft tissue. This 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.

Clinical Benefits:

  • No electrical energy required to pass through the patient
  • Minimal thermal spread
  • Safe to use near delicate structures
  • Permits continuous nerve monitoring
  • Less intra-operative bleeding ² ³
  • Less char and smoke, enabling surgeon to clearly view the tissue planes

Procedural Benefits:

  • High level of precision and control
  • Easy to use and short learning curve
  • Multipurpose instruments that can be used for grasping, dissecting, sealing and dividing
  • Easy set up

Patient Benefits:

  • Reduction in post-operative pain ² ³
  • Faster return to normal diet ³
  • Reduced post-operative bleeding ² ³
