Abstract
Coblation technology (Arthrocare Corp., Sunnyvale, CA, USA) uses plasma-mediated ablation (PMA) for soft-tissue removal. The application of PMA for tonsillectomy has evolved since 1998 through changes in equipment, and surgical techniques. This paper reviews the evidence to date for Coblation tonsillectomy, and offers perspective on novel applications of this maturing technology.
