AIN Treatment module for electrosurgical treatment of AIN lesions

AIN lesions treatment module

The AIN Treatment Module is part of the THD® ProctoStation modular platform and provides different surgical options for the treatment of anal intraepithelial lesions.

The AIN Treatment module allows the surgeon to electrosurgically ablate, coagulate or fulgurate different types of anal lesions in a safe and comfortable way thanks to its advanced features.

AIN module for electrosurgical treatment of AIN lesions includes a high-frequency desiccator or an electrosurgical unit with probes for different surgical needs, and a smoke evacuation system.

High-Frequency Desiccator

The High-Frequency Desiccator is a low-power electrosurgical unit designed for the treatment of anal dysplasia and to perform other procedures in the perianal verge.

The High-Frequency Desiccator includes:

  • a Reusable Handpiece High-Frequency Desiccator with power switching buttons, steam autoclavable up to 25 times.
  • a stainless-steel stand for mounting on a cart.

Other items usable with the High-Frequency Desiccator are:

  • a Smoke Evacuator Tubing Kit, a disposable tubing kit for simultaneous evacuation of smoke while using the High-Frequency Desiccator. Sold with the unit and also separately.
  • a Reusable Grounding Cable High-Frequency Desiccator to be used with or without a grounding cable and pad. Tested for 100 uses and sold separately.
  • a Disposable Grounding Pad to be used with the reusable grounding cable to ground the patient, avoiding physical contact with the surgeon. Sold separately.

Electrosurgical Unit (ESU)

The Electrosurgical Unit (ESU) is a multipurpose unit to perform monopolar and bipolar surgical procedures because it has 5 different energy outputs: cut, blend, coagulation, fulguration, and standard bipolar.
The Electrosurgical Unit includes:

  • a Reusable Grounding Cable ESU to be used in conjunction with the Disposable Grounding Pads ESU and tested for 100 uses. Replacements are available separately.

Other items usable with the Electrosurgical Unit are:

  • a Smoke Evacuator Fusion Hand Piece, a disposable low-profile electrosurgical pencil with an integrated smoke channel to be used in conjunction with Smoke Evacuation Fusion probes. Sold separately.
  • a Smoke Evacuator Fusion Suction Tubing Kit, a disposable tubing kit intended for evacuation of electrosurgical aerosols and gases to be used in conjunction with Smoke Evacuator Fusion Hand Piece and Smoke Evacuator Probes. Not intended for use with fluids. Sold separately.
  • a Smoke Evacuator Fluid Catch Tubing Kit for evacuation of electrosurgical aerosols, gases, and fluids to be used with Smoke Evacuator Fusion Hand Piece and Smoke Evacuator Probes. Sold separately.
  • Disposable Grounding pads ESU used with the reusable grounding cable to ensure proper patient connectivity and reduce electrical shocks and burns.

Electrosurgical probes

THD can offer a complete range of stainless-steel electrosurgical probes to be used with the Electrosurgical unit for the removal of AIN lesions and other surgical needs.
The electrosurgical flexible probes line includes stainless-steel probes with different end tips, all featuring:

  • a hollow center to allow for smoke evacuation from directly behind the tip
  • flexible support to allow providers to achieve infinite angles of treatment

The shape and features of the different end tips provides the abilty to perform electrosurgical treatment of AIN lesions by ablation, coagulation or fulguration, based on the surgeons’ specific needs:

6’’ probes for anal intraepithelial lesions inside the anal canal

  • Fusion Flex Ball Tip probes: a flexible probe with a stainless-steel ball tip used to seal blood vessels by electrothermal coagulation.
  • Fusion Flex Blade probes: a flexible probe with a stainless-steel blade used to remove lesions by electrothermal fulguration.
  • Fusion Flex Needle Tip probes: a flexible probe with a stainless-steel needle tip used to cut lesions by electrothermal ablation.
  • Fusion Flex Coag Tip probe: a Teflon-coated flexible probe with a stainless-steel tip used to suction both smoke and fluids while sealing blood vessels to allow for faster hemostasis.

2’’ probes for perianal intraepithelial lesions

  • Fusion Flex Ball Tip probes: a flexible probe with a stainless-steel ball tip used to seal blood vessels by electrothermal coagulation.
  • Fusion Plastic Blade probe: a Teflon-coated probe with a stainless-steel blade used to ablate perianal lesions by electrothermal fulguration.
  • Fusion Flex Needle Tip probes: a flexible probe with a stainless-steel needle tip used to cut lesions by electrothermal ablation.

Smoke Evacuator

The Smoke evacuator is a light-weight and compact high-efficiency filtration system. It is used to remove harmful surgical smoke at the point of ablation during electrosurgery.

It includes a footswitch for easy hands-free activation, 3 ports for maximum versatility of connections and a push-button fan adjustment with LED indicator to identify current setting. The use of the smoke evacuator in combination with Smoke Evacuator Fusion Hand Piece ensures best results.

Other items usable with the Smoke Evacuator are:

  • a 4-stage Replacement Filter to filter aerosols, gross particulate, and micro-organisms at an efficiency of 99.999% with a carbon filter for absorption of toxic gases. Also available as replacement.
  • a Remote Activator to allow automatic activation of the smoke evacuator when connected with the Electrosurgical Unit or High-Frequency Desiccator. Sold separately.

AIN Treatment Module for electrosurgical treatment of AIN lesions: advantages and benefits

AIN Treatment Module features allow to:

  • clear the field of vision during surgery and conclude all electrosurgical procedures faster and more efficiently.
  • effectively suction both smokes and fluids and ensure maximum safety and comfort for both providers and patients.
  • perform a wide range of procedures in a cost-effective way thanks to an affordable package system fitting all electrosurgical and suctioning needs that can be used in an outpatient setting.
