The Mini EVS 3.4 Epidural Vein Sealer delivers Transcollation technology, a combination of RF energy and saline that has been shown to reduce blood loss during spine surgery. The device is also designed to optimize visibility and control epidural bleeding by enabling prophylactic compression and treatment of epidural veins before they begin to bleed. In order to address surgeon needs of managing hemostasis in minimally invasive spine surgery, the Mini EVS 3.4 has an insulated shaft for simultaneous retraction and electrode use near sensitive tissues.
