The LigaSure Advance™ monopolar tip device (LF5544) is a laparoscopic vessel sealer and divider that offers multifunction capability in one instrument. The combination of advanced monopolar energy and LigaSure™ sealing technology may allow surgeons to reduce their exchanges between dissecting, ligating and grasping instruments during procedures.
The LigaSure Advance™ monopolar tip sealer/divider is designed for use in laparoscopic procedures. The instrument’s 44 cm shaft provides extended reach and increased access to target structures. Procedural applications for this device include:
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.
