By controlling bleeding, the use of the Aquamantys system has been shown to significantly reduce the incidence of hematoma and reduce surgical time in a variety of procedures, and may reduce the need for haemostatic agents. Aquamantys bipolar sealers are sterile, bipolar electrosurgical devices intended to be used in conjunction with the AEX and Aquamantys pump generators for delivery of RF energy and saline for hemostatic sealing and coagulation of soft tissue and bone at the operative site.

Controlling blood loss can reduce or eliminate the need for a tourniquet in your TKA, potentially leading to the following patient benefits:

  • Less pain reported after surgery
  • Less swelling and brusing
  • Greater range of motion
  • Increased satisfaction scores following surgery

Minimising tourniquet time has also been shown to reduce the risk of some post-operative complications:

  • Wound infection
  • Nerve injury
  • Skin necrosis
  • Hematoma (internal pooling of blood)
  • Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
