Ethicon, part of the Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies, announced the launch of the ENSEAL X1 Curved Jaw Tissue Sealer, a new advanced bipolar energy device for colorectal, gynecological, bariatric surgery and thoracic procedures.
The ENSEAL X1 Curved Jaw is the first of several new advanced laparoscopic bipolar devices the company plans to launch in the coming months as it expands its energy portfolio, which includes market-leading HARMONIC ultrasonic devices and MEGADYNE core electrosurgical tools.
Among the ENSEAL X1 Curved Jaw’s new features are separate seal and cut capabilities, a 360-degree continuous shaft rotation that enables easy access to targeted tissue and Ethicon’s Adaptive Tissue Technology, which enables the device to continuously sense changes in the condition of tissue and respond accordingly with the optimal amount of energy to minimize lateral thermal spread. These features, including improved ergonomics and a one-handed operation, combine to offer precision and a secure seal to deliver greater efficiency in the operating room.
Ethicon previously launched the ENSEAL X1 Large Jaw Tissue Sealer for vessel sealing in open surgical procedures and to provide better hemostasis, minimize thermal spread, and improve ergonomics.
