J-Plasma™ is formed by passing helium over Bovie’s proprietary
electrode, which is held at high voltage and high frequency, producing a
luminous discharge beam. The electrode can also be in the form of a
retractable surgical blade, providing multiple modes of operation in a
single instrument. The extended surgical blade can be used for incisions
and other cutting procedures, and when retracted, the blade is used to
form the J-Plasma beam for coagulation. The extended blade can also be
used in combination with the J-Plasma beam, providing an enhanced
cutting capability with minimal impact on surrounding tissue.
