Innovation inspired by tradition
Precise, controlled dissection
Ergonomic, scissor-like design with a single jaw aperture for versatility in dissection and minimal thermal spread thanks to Adaptive Tissue Technology.
Access and visibility in deep spaces
HARMONIC FOCUS®+ Long Shears has a 17cm shaft length to reach deep anatomy and slim profile for precision in tight spaces.
Reliable, fast and effective
Seals 5mm vessels, as well as lymphatics.* Provides seal strength greater than 2X systolic blood pressure (>200mgHg.)†
Reduced operative time
The use of HARMONIC® Technology in pancreatectomy saved approximately 30 minutes as compared to clamp, cut and tie.‡
* Based on preclinical testing of blood vessels and lymphatic vessels up to and including 5mm and 1mm in diameter, respectively. (C0097)
† The burst pressure of transected 3-5mm porcine carotids was 207.8mmHG at 99% probability and 95% confidence (n=89). (C0735)
‡ In a retrospective analysis of data from 623 U.S. hospitals, use of HARMONIC® Technology in pancreatectomy procedures performed in 2008 resulted in a statistically significant mean time savings as compared to cut, clamp, and tie [6.9 hours vs. 7.4 hours (p = 0.022)]. (C0595)
