In addition to the reusable RaVoR™ bipolar electrodes used successfully in the market for more than 15 years, Sutter also offers a disposable version.
Both the RaVoR™ bipolar electrodes for the inferior turbinates, single-use and the RaVoR™ bipolar electrodes for the soft palate, single-use offer the same benefits as their reusable counterparts.
RaVoR™ for the Inferior Turbinates
RaVoR™ of the inferior turbinates has become a standard treatment option in sleep surgery, i.e. to treat habitual snoring, mild sleep apnea and to increase both comfort and compliance of CPAP treatment. Moreover, it can be beneficial to improve nasal breathing, even together with septum correction, or to treat symptoms of rhinitis.
RaVoR™ for the soft palate
RaVoR™ (Radiofrequency Volume Reduction) of the soft palate has become the standard surgical procedure to treat habitual snoring and mild sleep apnea. Multiple clinical studies confirmed the efficacy and the clinical benefit of the treatment (see abstracts). This minimally invasive treatment method preserves the structures and function of the soft palate. RaVoR™ is performed under local anesthesia; it can easily be combined with other treatments, e.g. RF-UPPP or CPAP treatment.
RaVoR™ of the tongue base is intended for patients suffering from light to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and retrolingual obstruction. RaVoR™ (Radiofrequency Volume Reduction) of the tongue base is a minimally invasive surgical treatment option for obstructions on that level.
