Disposable Bipolar Pencil
Disposable bipolar pencils are ideal for performing pinpoint hemostasis in delicate tissue structures. The main feature of the bipolar pencil is the insulated wire and sleeve that form the coaxial harness assembly. The harness assembly extends from the rear pins and continues out the front of the instrument. The area of coagulation is restricted to the space between the two elements. This permits discrete coagulation without excessive damage to peripheral tissue structures. The solid single-piece construction eliminates potential fluid seepage that could lead to a product failure while providing electrical insulation to the internal components. The exterior surface has a knurled finish that gives a non-slip grip. Bipolar pencils are available in a variety of styles and range from 18 gauge to 25 gauge.
