Single-use Diathermy Abbey Needle with Suction launched at MEDICA 2017

A pioneering single-use Diathermy Abbey Needle with Suction which helps surgeons improve performance and outcomes during a range of procedures, will be unveiled at MEDICA 2017.

Developed by UK specialist Single Use Surgical, the device improves visibility at the surgical site during submucosal diathermy(SMD), turbinectomy and breast surgery. It offers a unique combination of precise cauterisation and targeted suction helping to remove surgically generated smoke and reduce the risks associated with reprocessing a reusable monopolar device.

The Hazards of Surgical Smoke

The Hazards of Surgical Smoke

Surgical smoke is a health hazard that can often be overlooked in surgical theatre. In Denmark, legislation has been in place since 2001 to ensure surgical smoke prompts removal at the point of surgery (not just from the operating room), so can legislation in the UK and elsewhere be far behind? And what can be done in terms of minimising potential harm to patients and healthcare staff?

Single Use Surgical at Africa Health

Our range of single-use surgical instruments, including the innovative Diathermy Abbey Needle with Suction, will be on display at the upcoming Africa Health, held in Johannesburg from 7th to 9th June.

Making a difference in Ethiopia

In early 2016, Single Use Surgical donated a number of items to the Reach Another Foundation to support their life saving work in developing countries around the world. Jordan Adams, CEO of a charity who has partnered with the Reach Another Foundation, approached us with a request for another donation, this time to support their work in Ethiopia.

Reusing surgical instruments poses an increasing risk of patient to patient cross-infection, as instruments with fine lumens remain too difficult to clean and minimally invasive procedures become more common.
