Huntleigh Intraoperative Probe 8Mhz for use with the Vascular Dopplers
Re-Sterilisable 8MHz Surgical Doppler Probe:
Quality control is vitally important in performing surgery, if secondary intervention and re-operation are to be avoided.
The Dopplex intraoperative probe can assist in the performance of safe surgery. Using Doppler ultrasound the probes provide immediate evidence of success in vascular reconstructive procedures. By confirming blood flow prior to closing, time and costs of a potential re-operation can be saved.
Furthermore the risk of prolonged ischemic time is significantly reduced.
The probe can also be used to locate small vessels in skin flap planning and during cosmetic procedures.
• Sterilisable by Autoclave, Ethylene Oxide or Steris System 1.
• Audible, visual* and hard copy* confirmation of blood flow.
• 8MHz operation for reliable flow detection in native vessels and some prosthetic grafts.
• Simple operation – special electronic adaptor resists diathermy interference and allows connection to any Vascular Dopplex
Advanced Pocket Doppler:
• A unique easy clean connector system.
• Bi-directional velocity waveform printouts – when used with the dopplex MD2, dopplex RD2 or dopplex MD200 in conjunction with the dopplex Printa II or dopplex DR3 software package.
* Depending on Dopplex system used.
The easy to clean probes have been designed in close consultation with leading surgeons and meet exacting requirements for quality, ease of use and value for money. A unique, easy clean connector system has been developed to provide trouble free connection to the probe adaptor and the super flex cable does not kink or tangle when in use.
Why use the dopplex intraoperative probe?
The intraoperative probe can greatly reduce the risk of infection during surgery caused by non sterile products being used within the sterile field.
The fully sterilisable probe ensures that high quality Doppler signals can be obtained from vessels without compromising the sterile barrier.
Palpating a pulse does not confirm flow:
The intraoperative probe is an excellent Quality Assurance tool and has benefitted many surgeons during operations. Palpating the vessel for a good pulse does not indicate that distal run off is adequate.
A good pulse can be obtained from a blocked distal vessel and is often misleading.
Where the dopplex intraoperative probe can be used?
The intraoperative probe can be used in a wide range of clinical procedures, these include:
• Carotid Endarterectomy
• Femoro-popliteal bypass
• In-situ femoro-distal bypass
• Detection of flow in arteriovenous fistulae
• Coronary artery bypass grafts
• Renal and hepatic transplantation
