A yellow alert indicator will appear in the “window” at the distal end of the Premium Surgiclip™ indicating that 5 clips remain (the Premium Surgiclip™ II features a clear window the entire length of the shaft, which allows visibility of all clips remaining). For both the Premium Surgiclip™ and the Premium Surgiclip™II, once the final clip has been fired, the safety interlock feature prevents the handles from being squeezed, thus preventing the empty jaw from being closed on tissue.
The Premium Surgiclip™ is available in a Small clip size with an instrument length of 9.0" , a Medium clip size with an instrument length of 9.75 and 11.5", and a Large clip size with an instrument length of 13.0".
The clips delivered by the Premium Surgiclip™ are titanium.
