“LDF [Laser Doppler Fluxmetry] offers several advantages, including (a) sensitivity to rapid changes in flow, (b) simplicity in performance, and (c) noninvasiveness.” Smith, TL, Koman LA, Mosber AT. Principles and Methods of Toxicology “Cardiovascular Physiology and Methods for Toxicology” 1994
Laser Doppler technology allows for the monitoring of microcirculation in tissue surfaces. Perfusion measurements during surgical procedures provide a quick check that the tissue or organ is being adequately supplied with blood. Post-surgical monitoring can inform clinicians about the healing process and alert them to potential ischemic issues.
Tissue perfusion can be measured in:
- Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery including breast reconstruction and maxillofacial surgery
- Free- & TRAM-Flap Monitoring
- Replantation of Digits & Limbs
- Transplant Surgery: organ tissue perfusion
- Dentistry: tooth pulp viability & gingival perfusion
Transonic’s BLF-Series Tissue Perfusion Monitors measure microcirculation in 1 cubic mm of tissue for real-time assessment of perfusion in patients. This safe, compact and portable bedside monitor is easy to operate and comes with sterilizable, interchangeable, Laser Doppler Probes for surface, mucosa or deep tissue measurements.
