Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. (EES) has announced U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance of its innovative ENSEAL® G2 Curved and Straight Tissue Sealers line to expand US surgeons’ options for achieving strong vessel seals while remaining gentle on tissue in both open and minimally invasive surgery(the products are already available in Europe).
“For me, it’s about having confidence in a reliable seal, while being gentle on tissue. I get both with ENSEAL® technology”
This line of eight new tissue sealer devices include four shaft lengths and options for curved and straight jaws to meet each unique surgical need. Along with ENSEAL® G2 Super Jaw, the ENSEAL®G2 Tissue Sealer line provides surgeons with the broadest portfolio of advanced bipolar tissue sealers to provide more options in both open and minimally invasive surgical procedures such as colorectal, gynecological and general surgery. The ENSEAL®G2 Tissue Sealers feature improved ergonomics and one-handed operation.
“For me,it’s about having confidence in a reliable seal, while being gentle on tissue. I get both with ENSEAL® technology,” says Dr. James Kondrup, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., A.C.G.E, and Assistant Clinical Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Upstate Medical College in Syracuse, New York (Binghamton, NY campus).
“I get uniform compression throughout the entire length of the jaws of the instrument, while at the same time I get minimal lateral spread of the energy, which is extremely important around vital structures.”
The entire ENSEAL® G2 Tissue Sealer line is designed for superior tissue sealing by providing uniform compression, controlling temperature and minimizing thermal spread.
- Consistent sealing through uniform compression: Proprietary I-BLADE® technology delivers high uniform compression for sealing vessels consistently along the length of the jaw.
- Minimal thermal spread: The proprietary offset electrode configuration in each device was designed to minimize thermal spread. Other bipolar devices do not have the PTC and offset electrode technologies designed for minimizing energy spread into surrounding tissue.
