FDA Issues a Safety Communication on the Dangers of Monopolar Laparoscopic Surgery.1

All health care professionals involved in surgical procedures are warned:

Monopolar energy use can directly result in unintended patient burns from capacitive coupling and intra-operative insulation failure.1


It’s not the technique, it’s the technology!

Traditional monopolar laparoscopic instruments cannot prevent stray energy from causing patient burns (due to capacitive coupling and intraoperative insulation failure).

Every 90 minutes a patient is severely burned and 1-2 people die every day from preventable stray energy burns.2
