Energy Sealing & Dissecting
Energy Sealing & Dissecting
Healing comes first for healthcare providers. That’s why Ethicon Energy is dedicated to delivering energy solutions for our customers to help patients heal faster and protect their teams from OR risks. We improve patient outcomes by making complex surgeries easier, more efficient and less invasive through tissue-specific energy delivery.
Clinical and Economic Value
Ethicon HARMONIC™ and ENSEAL™ technologies are supported by more peer-reviewed publications than any other advanced energy manufacturer combined.A We understand that surgeons, nurses and administrators aim to deliver positive surgical outcomes while improving efficiency and OR safety. Ethicon energy devices may help reduce surgical burdens through optimized energy delivery minimizing tissue damage.1
Ethicon energy solutions are designed to increase efficiency in the operating room, reduce complications, and minimize hospital costs. Portfolio-wide adoption of Ethicon energy devices may result in, on average, $101 per procedure cost savings due to reduced OR time and shorter patient hospital stays versus other energy devices.2
Surgical Burdens Associated with Tissue Dissection and Sealing Using Energy Devices
Perioperative bleeding occurs in 7%-13% across surgeries,B,3 which can lead to extended hospital stays that can cost up to $1,118 per day.4
All energy devices have a thermal envelope where tissue damage can occur. It is important to take into account factors such as compression, heat and time to optimize energy delivery.
29% of all energy-based device complications reported to the FDA are pad-site burns. The risk of a pad-site burn injury is increased when the current is concentrated.5
Surgical smoke is a byproduct of electrosurgical devices. It contains small particles (<2.0μm) able to get into deep parts of the lung6 and can cause acute and chronic health effects.7
ENSEAL™ X1 Tissue Sealers deliver secure and efficient sealing to help drive the best possible patient outcomes. ENSEAL X1 devices provided first pass hemostasis on 100% of vessels sealed and maintained a reliable seal during elevated blood pressure challenge in preclinical testing.8
Precise Energy Delivery
HARMONIC™ Shears are ultrasonic devices which deliver a unique type of energy to the tissue, which helps protect surrounding tissue and vital structures from being damaged.9,10 HARMONIC™ 1100 Shears with Adaptive Tissue Technology is the latest in Ethicon ultrasonic energy portfolio with up to 7mm vessel sealing and is designed to optimize clinical outcomes through precise energy delivery.
Minimize Pad Site Burns
Over 80% of all surgical procedures use energy devices,11 and these procedures require a return patient electrode or “sticky pad” which can cause patient pad-site burns and skin adhesive injuries.12 MEGADYNE™ MEGA SOFT™ Reusable Patient Return Electrodes minimize pad-site burns by limiting heat build-up.13
Minimize Exposure to Surgical Smoke14
MEGADYNE™ Smoke Evacuator begins to capture smoke nearly instantaneously after activation.15 The filter is designed to capture particulate and microorganisms of 0.1-0.2 microns at 99.999% effectiveness.16
