Sutter RaVoR

Snoring intensity pre and post-operatively for treatment of nasal turbinates and soft palate (1)Snoring intensity pre and post-operatively for treatment of nasal turbinates and soft palate (1)

RaVoR™ - Bipolar Radiofrequency Volume Reduction electrodes can be applied to the turbinates, soft palate, tongue base and other areas of the ENT anatomy. AutoRF™ is an intelligent mode with impedance control that will tailor the power output of the CURIS® 4MHz radiofrequency generator to the tissue condition. As soon as the right size of a lesion has been achieved, the CURIS generator will automatically stop the activation (AUTO STOP mode) and give an acoustic signal. If desired, an acoustic feedback function (AUDIO FEEDBACK) can be activated for additional safety.

While the lesion is created, a change in tissue condition is signalled according to a predefined pitch (the further the lesion progresses, the higher the activation sound).

Bipolar radiofrequency volumetric tissue reduction, using Sutter technology, appears to have promising results for patients with snoring and mild OSA. One treatment session resulted in significant reduction in snoring intensity, improvement in sleep quality and QOL, and reduction in daytime sleepiness. ²
