What is a LigaSure in surgery?

What is a LigaSure in surgery?

LigaSure is a bipolar clamping device used in open and laparoscopic surgeries for producing haemostasis in vascular pedicles up to 7 mm in diameter (“Covidien LigaSure technology: consistent, reliable, trusted vessel sealing,” 2012).

What is LigaSure Maryland jaw?

Reliable vessel-sealing technology The LigaSure™ Maryland jaw thoracic sealer/divider is part of our commitment to transforming lung care. It’s the first — and only — minimally invasive LigaSure™ device designed for VATS procedures and indicated for sealing pulmonary veins and arteries up to and including 7 mm.

What is LigaSure impact?

With the LigaSure Impact™ instrument, surgeons possess an open vessel-sealing tool that integrates ligation with vessel sealing of up to and including 7 mm in diameter, resulting in faster operating times and lower risk for blood loss compared with conventional techniques.

Is LigaSure monopolar or bipolar?

LigaSure (bipolar vessel sealing) technology is a radiofrequency-driven bipolar electrosurgical device.

How hot does LigaSure get?

22 Two independent experimental studies using infrared thermal imaging demonstrated that the temperature of the LigaSure device can rise up to 96 8C, 23, 24 and the mean lateral thermal spread above 60 8C is about 1.376 6 0.27 mm with activation on thyroid parenchyma.

What type of energy does LigaSure use?

I have been using this instrument along with the Harmonic Scalpel (Ethicon Endosurgery, Somerville, NJ) for many years now. LigaSure™ uses a combination of pressure and continuous bipolar energy to create vessel fusion.

Does LigaSure cut tissue?

The LigaSure Impact™ sealer/divider can grasp, seal, and cut tissue independently — or you can perform all three in one step.

Can you use monopolar cautery with a pacemaker?

When possible, bipolar electrocautery should be used. 2. If this is not practical, and monopolar electrocautery must be used, the cautery current pathway should be perpendicular to the pacemaker’s lead system when possible. This is done by manipulating the placement of the grounding plate.
