Aragon Surgical, Inc. announces the successful completion of the first 100 bariatric surgical procedures with its Lektrafuse CAIMAN System. Lektrafuse is used during a bariatric weight reduction procedure called a sleeve gastrectomy which works by permanently decreasing the size of the patient’s stomach. The Lektrafuse CAIMAN System is used during this procedure to cut and seal the short gastric vessels and omentum.
According to the company’s website, the Lektrafuse CAIMAN 44 combines unique mechanics and sophisticated energy delivery to assure a precise, durable seal with every pass. CAIMAN 44 is the first articulating RF tissue and vessel sealing instrument—giving you a more flexible, agile device for laparoscopic procedures. Because it is powered by Lektrafuse technology it delivers a seal you can count on, time after time.
CAIMAN 44’s 50 mm sealing length, 44 cm articulating shaft, and unique jaws offer a more flexible, agile device for tissue ligation and division. Lektrafuse technology combined with strong, uniform jaw compression forces creates a seal that is visibly different. With virtually no adhesion, no charring and less than 1 mm of thermal spread, the CAIMAN 44 seal provides confidence in one pass.
