With the bipolar resectoscope, Gimmi® created an outstanding instrument for resections in urology and gynaecology. The combination of new electrodes and new instrument design offers a safe, efficient and economic solution for transurethral resection and intra-uterine surgery. The resection under irrigating fluids requires high power, so that a constant cutting quality can be ensured. With the bipolar procedure, the current flow is concentrated on the operating field only and not – like with the
monopolar method – passed from the surgical field through surrounding tissue and the body of the patient back to the HF surgical unit via a neutral electrode.
In bipolar, the use of NaCl irrigation solution as a medium prevents the danger of TUR Syndrom.
