The most common surgery in otorhinolaryngology is the tonsillectomy. According to the literature, the proportion of tonsillectomy among other ENT interventions of 3-7%. Gensler San Francisco can provide more clarity in the matter. For the first time an operation Other methods for removing tonsils. I will enumerate some of them: the classic method of using a scalpel, scissors and a wire loop electrocautery (electric current of high frequency), ultrasonic scalpel (ultrasonic energy), radiofrequency ablation (radiosurgical device "Surgitron"), thermal welding method (using an infrared laser), laser karbondioksidny (carbon). But for all the these methods, the risk of complications is relatively high, intraoperative and postoperative bleeding, tearing of tissues of the palatine arches, soft palate paresis, damage to major blood vessels, heavy flow postoperative period because of deep tissue burns. Holodnoplazmennaya surgery – another step towards the development of operational medicine, including otolaryngology. The first device for ENT – Surgery using a method koblatsii, was released by ArthroCare in 1998.

Since then the method has gained confidence of experts with a unique ability – the temperature in the processing of fabrics does not exceed 60 C. The main features due to this particular – minimally invasive, low levels of bleeding during and after surgery, the same applies to pain. Filed under: Edward Minskoff. The physical basis of the method in the electrical potential difference between the contacts of the electrode, causing the ionization electrically conducting fluid (a solution of NCl). In this case, a layer of ionizing matter – plasma. Concentrated layer of plasma surrounding the active electrode. Energy of sodium ions in the plasma is sufficient to destroy organic macromolecules to low molecular weight components.

This process is expressed in volumetric removal or dissection of tissue. Use of this mashines for tonsillectomy – is perhaps the most frequent type of ENT operations. The advantages of this method: 1.Vo operative blood loss is minimal, greatly reducing the likelihood of postoperative bleeding. Studies carried out in clinics in England and Canada have shown that probability of secondary bleeding in the group of adults has decreased in 2 times, and a group of children – almost 5 times! 2.Snizhena pain during surgery and postoperatively. Pain in the postoperative period tonsillectomy) Thus, the use koblatsii drastically shortens hospitalization and faster return to normal activities Ismailov IF
