    Minimizing Thermal Spread

    In your practice, you may already be using certain direct-current devices, which - when used according to the Instructions for Use - offer the ability to help eliminate thermal spread so there is no risk of injury to the surrounding tissue, and the procedure of cutting and sealing can take place immediately adjacent to the main conduit.3,4

    Unintended thermal damage to surrounding cells, including the endothelium of the main vessel or conduit, can occur if the energy used during the EVH procedure (to ligate branch vessels and cauterize the adjacent tissues to seal the branch vessel) is not properly controlled.3
