Rafaelo Masterclasses

Two instructive masterclasses on the Rafaelo procedure recently took place in Delhi and Mumbai, bringing together experts and students alike.

In Mumbai, at the Global Hospital in Parel, Dr. Carlo Vivaldi from Germany shared valuable insights into the Rafaelo RF ablation procedure for treating haemorrhoids. The session included a live case demonstration skilfully performed by Dr. Jignesh Gandhi.

In Delhi, at Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC), more than 50 specialists and 30 students gathered for the Masterclass.

Dr Jignesh Gandhi and Dr Carlo Vivaldi demonstrated their expertise in using the Rafaelo technique. In just 3 hours, they treated seven patients, each with at least three haemorrhoids, as well as an additional case with an anal fistula.

Dr. Pawanindra Lal, Director Professor, and Head of Surgery at MAMC & Lok Nayak Hospital played a pivotal role in spearheading and organising this transformative event.

We are pleased to inform you about our participation at Medica, the prominent trade fair for the medical industry, scheduled from November 13th to November 16th in Düsseldorf.

Available from today, this all-inclusive Fistura Pack is a complete set of supplies for the treatment of anal fistulas.

A French prospective multicentre study assessed RFA (Rafaelo®) in 129 outpatients with grade II–III haemorrhoids with a 1 year follow up.

16 Centres participated in the research. RFA was performed in the operating room under locoregional or general anaesthesia. Primary endpoint was the evolution of a quality-of-life score adapted to the haemorrhoid pathology (HEMO-FISS-QoL) 3 months after surgery. Secondary endpoints were evolution of symptoms, complications, postoperative pain and medical leave.

The researchers concluded that RFA is associated with an improvement in quality of life and symptoms with a good safety profile. As expected for minimally invasive surgery, postoperative pain is minor with short medical leave. They pointed out that regarding average operating times, RFA is more rapid (15 min) than other techniques.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the HPR45i electrosurgical electrode to conduct radiofrequency (RF) current for coagulation from the RF electrosurgical generator MedRF4000® to target soft tissue in a broad range of surgical procedures.
