Reliable vessel-sealing technology

Tailored for Thoracic Surgery

The LigaSure™ Maryland jaw thoracic sealer/divider is part of our commitment to transforming lung care.

It’s the first — and only — minimally invasive LigaSure™ device designed for VATS procedures and indicated for sealing pulmonary veins and arteries up to and including 7 mm.1–5,([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #RE00147462, Pulmonary sealing claims for the LigaSure™ LF1930T device (memo).

The multifunctional LigaSure™ Maryland jaw thoracic device complements thoracic procedures by providing:

  • One-step vessel sealing([FOOTNOTE=LigaSure™ Maryland jaw thoracic sealer/divider one-step sealing, nano-coated [instructions for use]. Boulder, CO: Medtronic; 2018.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

The LigaSure™ Technology Difference

Reliable LigaSure™ vessel-sealing technology drives the LigaSure™ thoracic device. It works by using the body’s own collagen and elastin to create a permanent seal that is designed to withstand three times normal pulmonary systolic blood pressure.3

Plus, LigaSure™ technology eliminates the guesswork — and minimizes thermal spread8,([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report # R0047634_A, Comparison of various competitor devices versus the Sonicision™ device and LigaSure™ LF1637 and LF1737 devices; acute porcine study.
