Description & Salient Characteristics: Stryker Malis Bipolar Generator and irrigator system provides a method to use electrical current through the device, which cuts through tissue and/or seals bleeding vessels. Surgeons often combine this type of surgical instrument simultaneously with some type of fluid irrigation that to controls the amount of tissue damage occurring during surgery. Compared to other cauterization methods, bipolar cautery allows surgeons to accurately and delicately move and remove diseased areas without causing extensive damage to adjacent or deeper tissue. By immediately searing affected blood vessels, surgeons usually spend less time performing the procedure, and patients generally experience tissue damage and blood loss.
The system must meet the following characteristics:
Offer both cut and coagulation settings
Smart console that as tissue resistance increases, the generator dramatically decreases electrical output
Irrigation capable
Oversized color touchscreen that provides easy recognition of settings and easy adjustment of settings

Allows user to set up surgeon specific profiles for quick recovery of preferred setting
