Repeated re-processing has a detrimental effect on diathermy instruments: the coating breaks down and pinholes or nicks appear. A leakage of current can occur, which could cause a burn to the patient or surgeon. Some electrosurgery manufacturers replace the damaged instrument with another of unproven provenance raising issues about accountability and operating history. Repaired diathermy forceps and cables do not require CE marking under the Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC.
To address these problems, Surgical Holdings has introduced a new system which offers these advantages:
- New for Old - Send in your surgical instruments and cables for repairs and receive brand new CE marked replacements.
- Speed - Surgical Holdings holds large stocks of instrument patterns and the most common cables, enabling a fast turnaround of items which would otherwise require repair.
- A New Instrument - Paid for out of your repair budget.
- British Made - All forceps and cables are manufactured to conform with the European Directive 93/42/EEC for Medical Devices.
