The multifunctional LigaSure™ Maryland jaw device now delivers even greater procedural efficiency.2,3,§
Because — compared to the legacy device — the new nonstick nano-coated jaws:
So you get these benefits in addition to the performance you expect from the LigaSure™ Maryland jaw device.
We engineered our multifunctional LigaSure™ Maryland jaw device to provide efficiency throughout the procedure.6,§§ Now, we’ve taken that efficiency to the next level — by putting nonstick nano-coating on the jaws.3,‡‡
With the LigaSure™ Maryland jaw device you get the benefits of:
The LigaSure™ Maryland jaw device delivers:
Three lengths to meet different procedural needs
The LigaSure™ Maryland jaw device is available in three lengths:
The new LigaSure™ Maryland jaw device is designed to help you treat patients — reliably and efficiently.2,§
Because we combined the benefits of nonstick nano-coating technology with the proven performance of LigaSure™ vessel-sealing technology.
Nano-coating is a highly controlled, thin-film coating with uniform thickness. It covers the entire jaws of a LigaSure™ device without impacting the intelligent vessel-sealing algorithms of Valleylab™ energy platforms.
For the LigaSure™ Maryland jaw device, compared to its uncoated counterpart, that means:
The net benefit is smoother, more efficient procedures.3,§
LigaSure™ technology has been setting the standard of care for vessel sealing for nearly two decades.
LigaSure™ technology uses the body’s own collagen and elastin to create a permanent seal that can withstand three times normal systolic blood pressure.7 It’s been used in more than 19 million procedures worldwide.8,‡‡‡ And is supported by an ever-growing body of clinical evidence.
With an average seal cycle of one to four seconds in most surgical situations,9 LigaSure™ technology can seal vessels up to and including 7 mm, lymphatics, and tissue bundles. It also eliminates the guesswork — and minimizes thermal spread10 — by automatically discontinuing energy delivery when the seal cycle is complete.9
The LigaSure™ Maryland jaw portfolio works great when powered by the ForceTriad™ energy platform with 3.6 software and higher. For optimal performance, use it with the Valleylab™ FT10 energy platform.
The Valleylab™ FT10 energy platform makes LigaSure™ devices better than ever.9,11
