Venom supposedly has a bigger lesion according to Stryker course.

Again so this is from their course so take with a grain of salt but they recommended placing them perpendicular for si rf and then bipolaring. They called it palisade technique. They had pictures showing the burn getting vertical enough to catch the sacral branches.

Thx.

Along similar lines- do standard Stryker electrodes work or have to buy special venom electrodes?!
