Ethicon has introduced the Enseal X1 large jaw tissue sealer for use in open procedures, colectomies, and hysterectomies. It can be used in open general, gynecologic, urologic, thoracic, and vascular procedures.
The new device's larger distal electrode surface area is supported by the Ethicon generator with adaptive tissue technology, which allows to effectively reduce bleeding in thick tissue.
The sealer's shaft rotation enables to improve access to targeted tissue. It also provides separate seal-and-cut functionally and convenient control placement for less hand movement. Enseal X1 is expected to give surgeons greater control, access, and accuracy during surgical procedures in an effort to improve outcomes for patients.
