The LigaSure™ small jaw sealer/divider (LF1212A), working exclusively with the ForceTriad™ energy platform, combines TissueFect™ sensing technology with hand or foot activation and an integrated cutting mechanism to create a multifunctional tissue sealing system that provides consistent, controlled tissue effect.
This instrument is designed for use in open procedures.
Procedural applications include:
The LigaSure™ small jaw sealer and divider is an 18.8 cm (7.4 inch) vessel sealer and divider, designed to be used in confined surgical spaces where access and visibility are a necessity. The instrument has a low temperature profile and seals effectively at a cooler temperature compared to Harmonic FOCUS™*([FOOTNOTE=When compared to the Harmonic FOCUS™* as part of an August 3, 2010, study comparing device temperatures during seal tests on porcine tissue either in-vivo or freshly excised. (Covidien test report R0021935B dated September 14, 2012.)],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]).
The LigaSure™ small jaw sealer/divider:
LigaSure™ technology confines effect to target tissue with thermal spread ≤ 2mm on average, so you can feel more confident sealing near critical structures and dissecting around vessels.
Ligasure™ technology has been shown to significantly reduce hospital stay and post-operative drainage days compared to conventional techniques when used for axillary breast dissection.([FOOTNOTE=Cortadellas-Rosel T, Córdoba-Cardona O, Espinosa-Bravo M, Mendoza-Santin C, Rodríguez-Fernández J, Esgueva-Colmenarejo A, Alvarez-Vinuesa M, Rubio-Rodríguez IT, Xercavins-Montosa J.
