Monopolar Lesion Comparison Images

Side by side comparison of 18g standard monopolar cannula v. Nimbus lesion. This demonstrates Nimbus provides a significantly larger lesion than the standard 18g monopolar cannula. 

Nimbus monopolar technique created a robust 11.40mm diameter lesion.

The standard 18g cannula monopolar technique produces a 5.47mm diameter lesion.

Bipolar Lesion Comparison Images

Nimbus bipolar technique created a robust 31.20mm diameter lesion.

The standard 18g cannula technique revealed a 7.80mm gap resulting in an incomplete lesion when used under the same conditions.

Laboratory Testing Conditions

The tissue in this test was warmed to 37 degree celsius to simulate body temperature in a water bath. The tissue used in these images was chicken breasts.

For the monopolar testing the radiofrequency generator was set to 80 degrees celsius for 80 seconds with a 30 second ramp for both the Nimbus and the standard 18g cannula.

For the bipolar testing the radiofrequency generator was set to 85°C for 150 seconds for 150 seconds with a 30 second ramp for both the Nimbus and the standard 18g cannula.
