* 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). (C2090)
Exceptional sealing strength as evidenced by burst pressures of 150% relative to both small and large jaw devices
† Porcine tissue thickness measured at 8g/mm2 prior to firing. Tissue comfortably compressed to closed staple height per IFU. (C1735)
Exceptional staple line integrity now across a range of tissue thicknesses with each reload
‡ Comparison of the ECHELON FLEX™ GST System designed to accommodate a compressed tissue thickness range of 1.0mm to 4.0mm vs the Medtronic Tri-Staple portfolio intended for a thickness range of 0.75mm to 3.0mm (Medtronic literature, downloaded from Medtronic website on Nov 16, 2016). (C2272)
The ECHELON FLEX GST System can accommodate the broadest range of [lung parenchyma] [gastric] [colorectal] tissue thicknesses.
§ 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
