Smart Instrument Design
For Ergonomic Treatment
The CELON method is a highly efficient solution for minimally invasive and impedance-controlled tissue ablation. It is extremely user-friendly as its innovative bipolar technique enables safe, gentle, and fast energy transmission into the tissue. In addition, the CELON method requires only a short training session and can generally be performed on an outpatient basis.
ENT specialists can use the CELON method to treat a variety of indications.
"An excellent innovation incorporating various functions in one device with the possibility of storing standard settings for the individual surgeon. It also allows objective documentation of duration and intensity of Radiofrequency energy delivered."

"I’ve been successfully using the CELON RFITT method for more than 15 years. What impresses me the most is the level of accuracy and user-friendliness which is mainly achieved by means of ergonomical probes. This proven technology allows me to treat my patients in a quick and tissue-sparing manner."

Due to the design of the CelonProBreath applicator, submucosal thermal lesions are created along the entire length of the turbinate, keeping the ciliated epithelium and mucous membranes intact. A visible reduction in volume as a result of scarring and the body’s resorption of the coagulated tissue can be expected after three weeks.
Stiffening of Soft Palate
The bipolar RFITT CelonProSleep plus applicator is used to puncture the soft palate muscle at precise positions, and in so doing, coagulates its submucosal tissue.
A tightening of the palatine tissue can be expected within approximately four weeks. As a result, the vibration of the soft palate is reduced, largely eliminating the main cause of habitual snoring. Usually, only one to two treatment sessions are needed.
Shortening of Uvula/Webbing
Additionally, the CelonProCut accessories can be used efficiently to reduce the uvula and the soft palate mucous membrane in selective cases of habitual snoring.
In this procedure the uvula is held by forceps, which also serve as a return electrode.
The fine cutting electrode ensures fast and precise cutting. The palatine muscle remains largely intact, while the risk of tissue bleeding at the palatine arch and the enlarged uvula is low. As a result, the breathing passage is significantly expanded.
The bipolar RFITT CelonProSleep plus applicator is used to treat enlargement or slackening of the muscles of the tongue, leading to a volume reduction and stiffening.
The tongue base will be stabilised and the respiratory tract is opened.
The coagulation causes a local denaturation of the treated tissue area, leaving tissue and organ surfaces intact, which in turn leads to reduced postoperative pain and risk of infection. A visible reduction in volume accompanied by a tightening of the tissue can be expected within four to six weeks. Usually only two treatment sessions are needed.
The bipolar RFITT CelonProSleep plus applicator is used to preserve the function of the palatine tonsils in cases of tonsil hyperplasia where complete removal of the tonsils is not necessary. The lymphatic tissue within the tonsils is precisely coagulated, involving only minimal risk of bleeding and minimal pain. Absorption of the coagulated tissue over the next three to four weeks leads to a volume reduction of up to 40 percent.
The procedure can be repeated six weeks later if required.
The bipolar CelonProCut system can be used to preserve the function of the palatine tonsils in cases of tonsil hypertrophy where an efficient and gentle partial removal of the tonsils is needed. The tonsils are grasped with forceps, which also serve as a return electrode. The incision with the cutting electrode ensures fast and precise cutting with only a minor risk of intraoperative bleeding. The current remains confined to the tissue area being treated; a neutral electrode is not required. Complete healing can be expected within approximately three weeks.
In addition, standard electrosurgical procedures in ENT, such as the treatment of epistaxis, can be performed with the CELON ELITE power control unit. ENT specialists may be able to use compatible standard hand instruments that are already available in their office or hospital.
"Probes are a particular feature in radiofrequency surgery. Olympus is at the forefront when it comes to the handling and functionality of interstitial probes. The very sharp and extremely thin, semiflexible CelonProBreath probes are ideal for procedures on the nasal turbinate under local anesthetic. The ProBreath probe only requires a single puncture, and offers maximum comfort."
