HARMONIC FOCUS®+ Shears
The HARMONIC FOCUS®+ Shears with Adaptive Tissue Technology is today’s standard for head and neck surgery—enabling fine dissection and sealing of vessels up to 5mm in head and neck procedures.
Features & Benefits
Visualization and Control
Precisely grasp, dissect, seal and cut.† Slimmer design improves visualization and control in narrow spaces† and around delicate nerves. The curved, tapered tip allows precision and speed in your head and neck procedures.*
Improved Efficiency§¶ and Outcomes
Less blood loss, shorter procedures and better outcomes. HARMONIC FOCUS+ Shears reduced total operative time by 31%\\ and reduced intraoperative blood loss by 45ml.**
Proven leader in thyroidectomy, now get the same precision and speed in your head and neck procedures* HARMONIC FOCUS+ Shears reduced total operative costs by 10%.1
Designed for Ergonomics and Fine Dissection
Feels, responds and dissects like a traditional fine dissection instrument. With Adaptive Tissue Technology, HARMONIC FOCUS+ Shears delivers energy intelligently and efficiently to enhance surgical outcomes and reliably seal 5mm vessels, as well as lymphatics.‡

§ Based on a meta-analysis of HARMONIC FOCUS® (HF) versus clamp, cut and tie, where HF reduced operative time (p<0.001), intra-operative blood loss (p<0.001), length of stay (p<0.005), drainage volume (p<0.01).

¶ The health technology method was applied in a case study of 440 patients undergoing thyroidectomy in Terni, Italy. The use of HARMONIC FOCUS® resulted in reducing overall procedure time from 143.33 minutes to 113.7 minutes (20.67%) and reducing overall hospital cost from €3,055 to €2,768 (9.39%).

†† In a preclinical rat model that compared cold scissors, HARMONIC ACE®+, HARMONIC FOCUS® and monopolar electrosurgery (MES). Incision with cold scissors, HARMONIC ACE®+ and HARMONIC FOCUS® at 2mm from the sciatic nerve were not different via compound action potential (1621, 1519, 1803 mV-ms), conduction velocity (61.8, 62.3, 60.3mm/ms), depolarization time (229.5, 211.6, 248.1 micro secs), repolarization time (2687, 2435, 2650 micro secs), vForce (20.2 , 17.0, 19.1 g), dForce (24.0, 21.4, 27.7 g) and beta-APP (12.6, 18.1, 18.6 % incidence), respectively (p-value for all >0.05). At 2mm from the sciatic nerve, MES resulted in significantly slower conduction velocity (58.5mm/ms), longer depolarization time (283.1 micro secs), longer repolarization time (4150 micro secs) and higher incidence of beta‐APP infiltration (31.8 % incidence) than cold scissors (p-value for all <0.05). (Note: p-values are comparison to cold scissors)(PSP003539).
