New and Improved from Medtronic
We’re raising the bar on the standard of care in vessel sealing. The nonstick coating on the jaws of the LigaSure Impact™ device delivers the reliable performance of LigaSure™ technology — with greater efficiency and fewer procedural interruptions.([FOOTNOTE=Lig-40 Report Product Claim LF4418 RE00057355. Based on internal benchtop testing conducted on July 29, 2016 using porcine uterine tissue, a wet gauze cleaning fixture, and optical imaging analysis. Cleaning effectiveness assessed after each of 2 cleaning cycles.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
Overcoming Clinical Challenges
Eschar buildup can cause jaws to stick, affect device performance, and require multiple cleanings that disrupt procedural flow. Our coated jaws help to solve this problem, and bring the value of greater efficiency to the OR — for patients, physicians, and the healthcare industry.
The LigaSure Impact™ device can grasp, seal, and cut tissue independently — or you can perform all three in one step. The device’s large jaws also:
But the latest innovation comes from the nonstick coating on the LigaSure Impact™ device jaws. Because compared to our legacy device, the nonstick coating:
The end result is a smoother procedure — for surgeons and patients.
The LigaSure Impact™ device is lightweight, comfortable to use, and the activation button is ergonomically positioned.2 It’s designed to optimize performance across a range of specialties, including:
The jaws of the LigaSure Impact™ device also facilitate access because they follow the curve of the stomach and uterus.2

Across the range of products and procedures, LigaSure™ technology delivers a unique combination of pressure and energy to create a consistent seal with each application.
TissueFect™ sensing technology is the control system for the ForceTriad™ energy platform, designed to precisely manage energy delivery, creating a range of options for desired tissue effect. TissueFect™ sensing technology monitors changes in tissue impedance 3,333 times a second, and adjusts energy output accordingly to deliver the appropriate amount of energy for the desired tissue effect.
LigaSure™ vessel sealing technology has been updated and improved in the ForceTriad™ energy platform, controlled by TissueFect™ sensing technology. LigaSure™ tissue fusion, like LigaSure™ vessel sealing, uses the body’s own collagen and elastin to create a permanent fusion zone. This technology can fuse vessels up to and including 7 mm, lymphatics, tissue bundles and pulmonary vasculature, and has an average seal cycle of two to four seconds in most surgical situations.
