RaVoR™ (Radiofrequency Volume Reduction) is an interstitial application for submucosal tissue shrinkage. Radiofrequency energy causes deliberate local lesions through brief and selective heating of certain tissue areas. The treated tissue is decomposed by the body's own immune system and turns into fibrous scar tissue. This process leads to shrinkage and hardening of the treated area. Sutter has developed different bipolar electrodes for the treatment of sleep-related respiratory disorders based on anatomical sites of obstruction.
