What is an Ellman?

What is an Ellman?

Ellman radiofrequency device works on patented radiofrequency technology- Cellular radio frequency absorption. The high frequency, 3.8 MHz causes less trauma which results in decreased post-operative pain and minimizes heat dissipation which results in decreased post-surgical edema.

What is RF in ophthalmology?

Radiofrequency (RF) • Refers to alternating current with. characteristics such that if the current is. input to an antenna, an electromagnetic. field is generated suitable for wireless.

When is radiofrequency ablation used?

Radiofrequency ablation uses an electric current to heat up a small area of nerve tissue to stop it from sending pain signals. It can provide lasting relief for people with chronic pain, especially in the lower back, neck and arthritic joints.

How do you use RF cautery?

The surgeon uses a hand piece with an active electrode (different type of electrodes for different applications) to transmit the radio waves. The radio waves are focussed on the tissue by an antenna plate (Patient plate) that is positioned behind the tissue in contact with patient’s skin.

Can RF damage your eyes?

Radiofrequency (RF) energy has been reported to cause a variety of ocular effects, primarily cataracts in the lens, but also effects on the retina, cornea, and other ocular systems.

What is RF for dry eye?

What is TempSure Envi? TempSure Envi is a radiofrequency (RF) laser treatment that safely and effectively treats baggy and dry eyes for a smoother, healthier-looking appearance. Meibomian Gland Disease (MBD) is the leading cause of dry eye and ocular discomfort, and it is now treatable with this radiofrequency laser!

Is RF cautery safe?

RFA is a simple, safe procedure with wider applications. It causes less lateral heat spread and tissue damage and provides better control in comparison to electric cautery. The cutting mode of radiofrequency is more effective and versatile in comparison to the carbon dioxide laser.

What is radio frequency mole removal?

Radio Frequency Surgery employs the use of low temperature, high frequency energy radio waves to cauterize and effectively remove growths, without any downtime. It provides results with minimal to no scarring and quick healing.

What kind of radio frequency does Ellman surgical EMC use?

The Ellman Surgical FFPF EMC operates at 3.8 MHz monopolar frequency resulting in less tissue destruction. The Ellman FFPF EMC represents 3.8 MHz advance radiofrequency technology that provides versatility, surgical control, precision and safety.

What is duty cycle of Ellman surgitron dual 90?

The Ellman Surgitron Dual 90 has a duty-cycle of 60 sec with auto cut-off feature. Ellman radiofrequency device works on radiofrequency technology- Cellular radio-frequency absorption.

What kind of RF source does Ellman surgitron use?

Surgitron FFPF EMC from Ellman is a highly reliable radio frequency source that coagulates and cuts soft tissue. The Ellman Surgical FFPF EMC operates at 3.8 MHz monopolar frequency resulting in less tissue destruction.

What is the CPT code for thermal ablation?

The inclusion of a code does not imply any right to reimbursement or guarantee claim payment. Other Policies may apply. Coding Clarification: CPT Codes 64633, 64634, 64635, and 64636 only apply to thermal radiofrequency ablation. CPT code 64999 is to be used for pulsed radiofrequency ablation.
