* In a pre-clinical study, 100% (56/56) of porcine blood vessels remained hemostatic over a 30 day survival period. (C2073)
HARMONIC HD 1000i produces consistent and reliable hemostasis
† Based on a pre-clinical study of lymphatic node dissection. (C2025)
HARMONIC HD 1000i displayed overall superior dissecting capabilities when performing dissection on the pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, azygous vein and lymph nodes
‡ Based on acute and long term evaluations in animate porcine stomach, bowel, lung and vasculature. Visual comparisons of 10-20 second clamp and release and full firing staple lines immediately following, 1hr after clamping, 14 days post op and at necropsy, as well as histological evaluation at 14 days post op, revealed no additional clinically relevant trauma to the tissues. (C2297)
Only reloads with Gripping Surface Technology have a proprietary ridged surface to provide an atraumatic grip on tissue to hold it in place during firing.
