Unique shape mimics a mechanical dissector.
More tapered jaw is designed to enable more precise access to tissue planes. Curved, tapered blade geometry delivers superior dissection among advanced energy devices* and may reduce the need to use a separate dedicated dissecting instrument.
Unique blade design delivers more secure seals, even in challenging conditions.
Exceptional sealing strength as evidenced by burst pressures of 150% relative to both small and large jaw devices†
Increased sealing speed, multi-functionality, and simplified steps for use.
Simple energy activation using one energy button provides the reliable sealing of the HARMONIC® MIN button with faster cutting than HARMONIC® MAX button for vessels up to 5mm in diameter.‡ Strong tip grasping is designed to minimize tissue slippage and may aid in tissue manipulation and control.§
* Design Validation Study with surgeons (n=31) who have used other advanced bipolar devices (Olympus Thunderbeat, Ligasure Maryland, Ligasure Impact, HARMONIC ACE+7 and HARMONIC ACE+), operating in simulated procedures in an animate porcine model (26/31).
† Based on a benchtop study with 5-7mm porcine carotid arteries. HARMONIC® HD (1878 mmHg) vs. LigaSure Maryland (1171 mmHg) and LigaSure Impact (1224 mmHg). (p<0.05)
‡ Seal reliability at 240 mm Hg of 98.2% vs. 98.4% for HARMONIC ACE®+7 MIN button. Speed based on average time to transect 150 mm of porcine jejunum (p=0.0000).
§ Based on average device tip grasping force (distal 5 mm of the jaw).
