The Diego Elite Multidebrider platform for applications including sinus surgery, polypectomy, tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and inferior turbinate reduction is offered by Olympus. Features include a toggle stop to open and close the blade window, dedicated suction and a bulb for de-clogging during the procedure. Various ergonomic handpieces are available, and a blade identification feature ensures that the device defaults to the recommended setting every time a new blade is plugged in. The platform offers monopolar and bipolar energy blades for reduced bleeding and hemostasis. The company says that the instrument shortens procedure times by as much as 12 percent compared with surgery performed with standard blades.
