Refined blade design
Curved blade designed to enable visibility and fine dissection.
The refined blade design includes a tapered tip with a proprietary, nonstick coating to enable fast, precise dissection.
Designed to outperform the competition
Strong, secure sealing in vessel sizes up to and including 7mm diameter.
The median burst pressures of HARMONIC ACE®+7 Shears in Advanced Hemostasis mode were higher than competitors.
Adaptive Tissue Technology
Provides superior heat management†‡
Adaptive Tissue Technology enables greater surgical precision and performanceβ by dynamically optimizing energy delivery in response to changing tissue conditions.
*Burst pressure = saline infusion pressure at which seal bursts
† In a benchtop study on porcine jejunum, ThunderbeatTM (Seal and Cut mode) exhibited 31.7% higher mean shaft temperature (Fahrenheit) on the last 3 of 20 transections vs. Ethicon ACE® devices with Adaptive Tissue Technology at Max Power Level 5 (p<0.001). (C1830)
‡ In a preclinical study on 5-7mm goat carotids (n=76) that compared the mean thermal damage via histology of HARMONIC ACE®+7 in Advanced Hemostasis mode vs LigaSureTM Blunt Tip (LF1537) (2 54 [±0.48] mm. respectively, p=0.003).
