US-based medical and surgical products designer Olympus has launched Diego Elite Multidebrider, a new tool designed to deliver optimal tissue dissection with built-in hemostasis and help speed-up minimally invasive sinus surgeries.

The Diego Elite Multidebrider surgical tool can be used in polypectomy, tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and a number of laryngeal surgeries, among other procedures.

It is reportedly the only ENT system that offers monopolar and bipolar energy blades for hemostasis as well as traditional standard shaver blades, reducing the need for other instruments.

The Olympus Diego Elite Multidebrider dramatically reduces the surgery times compared with those performed using traditional blades.

Diego Elite improves coagulation performance and accelerate further the procedure times, by delivering 27% faster tissue removal than previous models.
