Prior to the introduction of RF instruments, ablation procedures were performed with power instruments, which proved to be very time consuming. Arthroscopic RF technology not only provides greater control and precision but also allows the surgeon to cut only fragmented parts of the damaged tissue. RF is also commonly used for shrinkage of shoulder and wrist instabilities. This technology has also been used for other shrinkage applications, such as ACL/PCL tightening. However, the application of RF technology for knee-related surgeries has been criticized for its collateral effects and is becoming less common in arthroscopy. Although not commonly used for full applications in the knee, shrinkage devices are still useful for spot applications. RF probe usage has been shown to damage suture strength, which can lead to unwanted re-tearing of surgically repaired sites.
RF probes come in two varieties, monopolar or bipolar, and specific for two different functions, ablation or shrinkage. Bipolar and monopolar probes exist in both types, either for ablation and shrinkage. Thus the market can be segmented by type, which includes the bipolar and monopolar RF probe segments or by function into the ablation and shrinkage RF probe segments. Ablation probes create a point of high temperature at the treatment site, which vaporizes the water content of the tissue. In comparison, shrinkage probes operate at a lower temperature that merely desiccates the tissue, thereby contracting the treatment area through water loss. These devices can be used in applications that compete with shaver blades, thereby driving unit growth for cutting and shrinkage probes.
