Abstract

La présente invention concerne un dispositif médical compact pour soudage de tissu. Les têtes plasma portables de la présente invention sont conçues pour des découpes profondes et des découpes longues.
A compact medical device for tissue welding is provided. The hand-held plasma heads are configured for deep cuts and long cuts. A bio-compatible liquid capable of solidifying in response to application of plasma, such as an albumin solution, is applied to the wound. Plasma created from a gas such as helium is then applied to said bio-compatible liquid to solidify it and seal the wound. An additional polymerizing gas may also be applied. A feedback mechanism may maintain the temperature of said plasma. A wiper fort removal of excess liquid may also be provided.
