Tonsillectomy with BiClamp® 150C
- Recurrent tonsillitis
- Obstructive tonsillar hyperplasia
- Focal infections
- Tonsillar abscess
Opening the palatal arch
The anterior palatal arch is incised with the bipolar forceps.
Coagulation and cutting of the mucous membrane
The mucous membrane of the anterior and posterior palatal arch is successively raised with pointed scissors, atrophied with the BiClamp® and is cut with the scissors.
Cutting the upper venous plexus
The upper pole of the tonsil is prepared until the venous plexus is exposed. The vessels are sealed with BiClamp® and are then cut.
Sealing and cutting the tonsil vessels
The prepared tonsil vessels are sealed using BiClamp® and then cut mechanically near the tonsil.
Detachment of the lower pole
Finally the lower pole is detached. Two adjacent seals can be undertaken with BiClamp® for safe vascular occlusion.
