CareFusion Launches New Electrosurgical Product Line

V. Mueller Bipolar Instruments Promote Improved Safety for Electrosurgical Procedures

Mar 6, 2014

SAN DIEGO,CA, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ – CareFusion (NYSE:CFN), a leading global medical technology company, today announced the global launch of a new line of electrosurgical instruments under the V. Mueller® brand.

The new V. Mueller line of bipolar electrosurgical instruments will include both forceps and scissors with approximately 200 options including non-stick, titanium and irrigating options to meet the specific requirements of surgeons. Industry trends indicate that surgeons are migrating to bipolar electrosurgery, because it causes less thermal damage to nearby tissue compared to monopolar instruments.

“Expanding our electrosurgical line to include enhanced bipolar options is good for both our customers and their patients,” said Andreas Lex, vice president and general manager for V. Mueller and Snowden-Pencer® surgical instruments for CareFusion. “V. Mueller has been a trusted name in surgical instruments for decades, and the new line reinforces our commitment to innovation for today’s modern surgeries.”

A key feature of the new scissors in this line is a single-point connection to the electrical source, which reduces the number of wires attached to the handles to improve maneuverability and ease-of-use.

The new instruments are available for product demonstration and evaluation this month.
