Covidien's LigaSure technology provides a unique combination of pressure and energy to permanently seal vessels up to and including 7 mm in size, lymphatics and tissue bundles. The average seal cycle is 2-to-4 seconds and seals withstand three times normal systolic blood pressure. The feedback-controlled response system automatically discontinues energy delivery when the seal cycle is complete, eliminating the guesswork. The LigaSure technology is delivered through a variety of instruments for use in both laparoscopic and open procedures in a range of surgical specialties, including gynecological, colorectal, urology and general surgery.
