Brachycephalic Obstructive Airways Syndrome (BOAS) is an increasingly common condition which can require surgical intervention. However, conventional soft palate correction surgery can cause complications such as haemorrhages, pain and inflammation, both during and after surgery.
Which is where the Onemytis® 2 comes in. This new type of electrosurgical instrument is changing the face of soft tissue surgery. It is particularly suited to tackling the challenges presented by BOAS.
Dr Julian Hoad, Head of Crossways Veterinary Group in West Sussex now uses Onemytis® 2 “pretty much routinely” for nares widening in brachycephalic dogs:
“… the fact the haemostasis is so good, you can visualise the tissues a lot more easily. You can do more precise cutting and remove a larger amount of nasal tissue safely. It also drastically cuts down surgery time. I’d typically spend around half an hour on this procedure – now, surgery time is around five minutes.
It makes a huge difference.
I don’t think I’m overstating it to say this is the future of soft tissue veterinary surgery.”
