The exit opening (10) for the plasma is a slot, from which a flat or fan-shaped jet of plasma (11) exits with a laminar flow at its edges (12,12'), so that the plasma reaches the tissue with substantially no mixing with the surrounding air. The instrument (31) includes a gas source (1) for delivering an inert gas, preferably a noble gas, to at least one exit opening. Also included is a high-frequency (HF) generator (2) for delivering a coagulation current to an electrode arrangement located in the exit opening region.
