Lumenis Ltd., the world’s largest energy-based medical device company for surgical, aesthetic and ophthalmic applications, announced the launch of Lumenis Pulse 30H, the new addition to Lumenis’ comprehensive Urology portfolio, at the European Association of Urology (EAU) Congress, taking place March 11-15, 2016 in Munich.
As the newest offering in its category, the Pulse 30H system has an energy per pulse of up to 5J, the highest of its kind, along with a repetition rate of 25Hz. These features contribute to reduced procedure duration, higher stone fragmentation rate and minimal retropulsion. These capabilities set it apart from competition and increase the variety of stone types and sizes addressed during procedures.
“I was extremely impressed by the comprehensive solution the Lumenis Pulse 30H provides in addressing stones of any type and size, as well as tumors,” said Dr. Guido Giusti, Urologist, Head of European Training Center in Endourology, Ospedale San Raffaele-Turro, Milan, Italy. “The system along with its fibers has definitely set a new standard in the mid/low power range of stone systems.”
Offering optimal user experience, the Lumenis Pulse 30H features an intuitive user interface, efficient and flexible space-saving design offered in tower or desktop, green aiming bean in five adjustment options for enhanced endoscopic visibility and a system’s setting summary report for 10 last treatments. Additionally, the Pulse 30H is aligned with Lumenis fibers, maximizing the fiber’s durability and energy utilization during procedures.
“With a history of innovation in the urology community, Lumenis’ holmium lasers and delivery devices are the standard of care in urology. Through our unique Pulse 120H product and the latest additions of Pulse 100H and Pulse 50H, we provide state-of-the-art offerings to various market segments,” said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. “By adding the Pulse 30H to our family of urology solutions, we are now offering a new best-in-class product in the low-watt segment, and look forward to continuing our commitment to deliver premium products to drive better treatment standards, and ultimately, enhance the quality of care for patients.”
