HARMONIC FOCUS®+ Long Shears
HARMONIC FOCUS+ Long produces stable and reliable seals.1*
Features & Benefits
Thermal Management vs Previous Generations of Energy Products
Adaptive Tissue Technology for HARMONIC Focus+ Long resulted in lower and more consistent clamp arm temperatures2#
HARMONIC FOCUS+ Long Shears with Adaptive Tissue Technology is shown in preclinical testing to reliably seal up to 5mm vessels, as well as lymphatics3-7**
Cooler Tissue Temperatures
Use of HARMONIC FOCUS+ Long resulted in significantly cooler tissue temperature at 2mm and 4mm lateral to the jaw compared to OLYMPUS Thunderbeat.8‡
*In a pre-clinical study, 100% (32/32) of porcine blood vessels remained hemostatic over a 30 day survival period.
# Based on temperature and temperature variance of device following multiple transections using porcine jejunal tissue.
**Based on preclinical testing of blood vessels and lymphatic vessels up to and including 5mm and 1mm in diameter, respectively.
‡ Comparison of medians in a benchtop study on 3-5mm porcine carotid arteries via infrared camera (p<0.0001), tissue temperature measured at distances of 2mm and 4mm lateral to device jaw.
