Bovie Finger Background Paper

The Bovie Finger is a newly created digitally mounted electrosurgical device . The Bovie Finger was developed by a plastic surgeon and a team of medical device engineers to address a number of special surgical situations where a fingertip placed electrocautery tool would be ideal.

A number of surgical environments exist where one is often required to dissect and/or cauterize in anatomic areas that present less than ample maneuvering room. As a result, surgeons are often forced to employ their best judgment in less than ideal – indeed often completely restricted – visual environments. In these situations, even when a standard Bovie pencil can be used, we often rely primarily on our proprioception to best gauge position, depth, and force of the cautery instrument. The Bovie Finger removes this uncertainty by removing the entire pencil from the equation. Instead, the cautery tip is placed directly on the end of the surgeon’s preferred index finger essentially as a direct extension of the fingertip. As a result, the surgeon’s proprioception is further refined (thus allowing more precise control) by permitting direct feedback via the fingertip.

The Bovie Finger allows the surgeon to work in a more confined, even blind, space and affords a tremendously increased degree of spatial and tactile feedback. By capturing these advantages greater speed, accuracy and precision follows.

The Bovie Finger has already proved itself ideal for a number of plastic surgery techniques including:

• Breast capsulotomy
• Pectoralis release in breast augmentation
• Tunnel creation in pedicled flap procedures esp. TRAM flaps
• Scalp flap elevation
• High, superior central dissection in abdominoplasty
• Facelift procedures esp. the cervical component

As additional specialties and other creative minds engage the Finger Bovie numerous other situations will present themselves and prove ideal for the improved access, accuracy, speed and precision the Finger Bovie provides.

Script Details

Yes
Script provided:

Digit Script

o “The Digit electrocautery device is easily placed over the surgeon’s preferred dissecting finger. The anatomic fit and soft internal ring produce a secure, stable and tactile platform.”

o “An easily replaced insert allows for a wide range of glove sizes.”

o “The cord is left to drape free or secured with a Velcro patch or steri strip as desired.”

o “ The cautery tip receptacle is standard. The device accepts the full range of custom tips as well as needle tip or Teflon coated tips.”

o “ Digit is plugged into any of the standard electrocautery machines and is operated via the foot pedal.”

o “Digit is designed for a number of specific anatomic challenges but certainly may be employed as the standard cautery tool throughout the entire case from start to finish.”

o “ A few of these situations where Digit’s utility becomes readily apparent are shown.”

o “ In breast capsulotomy, the surgeon is often trying to create radial and circumferential full-thickness capsule incisions. In this tight, anatomically restricted and often blind portion of the procedure the surgeon benefits from the placement of the cautery directly on his or her fingertip. Specifically, the surgeon is able to sweep across the capsule even at its deepest and furthest recess. And, with the instant and improved tactile feedback, make safer swifter cuts.”

o “Likewise, in subpectoral breast augmentation, the Digit electrocautery device affords a swifter, safer, dryer, and overall more complete and elegant release of the inferior-medial pectoralis attachments.”

o “A final example shows the digit’s ease in creating the superior most elements in an abdominoplasty flap elevation where fingertip dissection is often the norm only now is greatly improved with the additional tactile cautery. Or, consider the ease and improved control provided by the Digit when the surgeon creates a tunnel for a pedicled TRAM flap. The surgeon’s thumb and other fingers can provide their own exposure and retraction further facilitating the dissection.”
