The advantages of this now widely used technology are twofold, both related to the safety of your patients.
First, the electric current no longer passes through the patient but directly returns to the generator through the resectoscope itself. The risks of burns due to the diffusion currents and those of synechia due to damaged endometrium are thus drastically reduced.
But also and above all, a monopolar resectoscope has to use glycocolle whose absorption by the patient is source of ionic disorders that can lead to death. In contrast, instead of glycocolle, a bipolar resectoscope uses a saline solution which is not toxic, and moreover less expensive. Connected to a bipolar generator, MaxiCare offers you this extra serenity.
