The Digitimer DS7AP Pediatric Stimulator is a dedicated device designed to help pediatric surgeons locate the musculature required for the reconstructed anus during posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) or Peña surgery. It is available in North America, Canada, and Mexico through Digitimer North America.
The stimulator provides a constant current stimulus of 0-100mA, delivered at a fixed frequency of 50Hz. It has two pulse durations, 200µs, and 500µs, which can be selected to provide different strengths of stimulation. The DS7AP also has a compliance voltage of 100V, which helps to protect the patient from electrical shock.
The stimulator is supplied with either disposable or reusable bipolar stimulation probes. The disposable probes are a single-use option that is ideal for reducing the risk of cross-contamination. The reusable probes can be cleaned and sterilized for multiple uses.
The DS7AP can be operated using a front panel toggle switch or a footswitch. This allows the surgeon to activate stimulation in a hands-free manner when required.
The Digitimer DS7AP Pediatric Stimulator is the only stimulator currently cleared by the FDA for use in PSARP or Peña surgery. It is a reliable and easy-to-use device that can help to improve the accuracy and efficiency of these procedures.
