The LigaSure™ vessel sealing system gives you something no other electrosurgical tool can - permanent vessel occlusion. The LigaSure™ system's revolutionary technology replaces almost all other hemostatic tools because it doesn't just ligate vessels, it actually fuses vessel walls to create a permanent seal.

The LigaSure Vessel Sealing System is compatible with a variety of specialty instruments, these are optional. Please inquire with your DRE representative about availability:
Optional Laparoscopic Instruments
- LigaSure™ V — 5 mm shaft, single use instrument that dissects, grasps, seals, and divides.
- LigaSure Atlas™ — Single use laparoscopic sealer/divider instrument that seals and divides vessels up to and including 7 mm in diameter and tissue bundles.
- LigaSure™ Lap — Single use laparoscopic instrument for laparoscopic procedures.
Optional Open Instruments
- LigaSure Atlas™ 20 cm — Single use sealer/divider instrument that offers reliability for dissection, grasping, sealing, and cutting in open procedures.
- LigaSure Impact™ — Works exclusively with the ForceTriad™ energy platform, utilizing the TissueFect™ sensing technology that precisely manages energy delivery for consistent, controlled tissue effects with faster fusion times than the original LigaSure™ generator
- LigaSure Precise™ — Single use instrument specifically designed to provide permanent vessel occlusion to structures that require fine grasping.
- LigaSure™ Std — Reposable instrument for general surgery open procedures.
- LigaSure™ Max — Reposable gynecology instrument for open procedures. The instrument's textured surface provides improved grasping capability for thick tissues.
- LigaSure™ Axs — Reposable instrument that has extra length and an angled jaw to allow better access in deep cavaties.
- LigaSure™ Xtd — Reposable instrument for deep cavity procedures. The longer instrument allows the surgeon to comfortably hold the device outside the surgical site.
- LigaSure™ Generator — The LigaSure™ generator is a computer controlled electrosurgical unit with two distinct outputs. The LigaSure™ vessel sealing receptacle diagnoses the tissue within the jaws of the instrument and delivers the optimal amount of energy necessary to fuse the vessel wall and create a permanent seal. The bipolar receptacle provides both bipolar and macrobipolar outputs.
