THE
PEAK
®
SURGERY SYSTEM
DELIVERSSUPERIOR CUTTING AND COAGULATIONWITH MINIMAL THERMAL DAMAGE.
THE PULSE OF PRECISION.
�e PEAK Surgery System is not yet available in the U.S.PEAK Surgical is in the process of filing pre-market notification with the FDA.
 
CUT
Precise cutting and coagulationfor all tissue types
Minimal thermal damage
Ability to “fine tune” based ontarget tissue
Quick and efficient cutting of fat
Maintains performance in blood-and fluid-filled fields
Significantly-reduced surgical smoke
COAG
Capable of “Bovie”-levelcoagulation
Reduced thermal injury
Less energy required
Easy-to-wipe tip
Maintains performance inblood and fluid filled field
�e PEAK Surgery System consistsof the PULSAR Generator, optionalwireless footswitch, cart, and PEAKPlasmaBlade.Plasma discharge along the exposedelectrode edge, which is 99.5% insulated.�e PULSAR Generator features a“plug-n-play”, user-friendly interface.
Turn up the pulse—without turning up the heat.
�e PULSAR Generator’s unique pulsedwaveforms and the PlasmaBlade‘s proprietaryinsulation scheme enable precise cutting withminimal thermal damage.ErgonomichandpieceBendable shaftHighly insulatedelectrodeRotating tip
For decades, surgeons have relied on scalpels to cut skin anddelicate tissues and on electrosurgical devices to cut and coagulatefat and other thicker, tougher tissues. �e inherent tradeoff isthat scalpels cut very precisely but do not control bleeding, whileelectrosurgical devices cut and control bleeding but damagesurrounding tissue. PEAK’s technology bridges this gap by providingthe benefits of both approaches.PEAK Surgical’s next-generation tissue dissection system hasdistinct advantages over today’s prevailing surgical instruments.�e company’s unique technology enables ultra-precise tissuedissection and coagulation while significantly minimizing thermalspread and collateral tissue damage. �is unparalleled combinationprovides significant benefits for both surgeons and patients.�e company’s flagship product, the PEAK Surgery System,balances a power source—the PULSAR Generator
—with a seriesof disposable devices—the PEAK PlasmaBlades
—to address abroad range of surgical applications.PEAK’s pulsed plasma and electrode insulation technologies wereoriginally developed at Stanford University. PEAK Surgical, Inc.now has the worldwide rights to apply these technologies to allsurgical fields.
“With the PlasmaBlade, tissue looks healthier, withno char. �e thermal damage we typically see withtraditional tools has been eliminated.”Kai Ihnken, M.D., Cardiothoracic Surgery Valley Medical Center, San Jose, CA

PEAK Technology Overview
�e PEAK Surgery System strikes a unique balance between precisecutting and bleeding control.PEAK’s pulsed plasma technology enables surgeons to cut straightthrough from skin to fat to muscle, while dialing in the desired degreeof coagulation and controlling collateral tissue damage.With a single system, you can:
 
 
Cut precisely
through
any type of tissue
 
 
Fine tune
the amount of 
bleeding control
to the target tissue—effectively minimizing thermal damage.As a result, you get unparalleled control and procedure efficiency.Preclinical studies

have revealed:
 
Reduced scarring
 
Stronger wound healing
 
Increased cutting speed and precision
 
Significant bleeding control
 A New Kind of Balancing Act
PEAK’s technology balances a
powerful, pulsed plasma generator
with
highly insulated electrodes
on a handheld device.“�e PEAK Surgical System represents a quantum leap in technology.It cuts like a knife with minimal scarring and collateral damage.And it eliminates the time and confusion from using two separateinstruments to precisely cut delicate tissues and to control bleeding.”�omas Krummel, MD, Professor and Chair of Surgery,Stanford University Medical School
�e PEAK PlasmaBlade offers you the closest thing to an optimal cut:
Precision. Bleeding control. Low thermal damage.
