HOLLYWOOD, FL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. (Ethicon) today announced the launch of HARMONIC ACE® 7 scissors (HARMONIC ACE® 7) with advanced hemostatic function. The first model has a 7 mm seal indicator. HARMONIC ACE® 7 combines the precision and versatility that HARMONIC® expects with reliable sealing of large blood vessels; a combination of advantages not present in any other product represents a real breakthrough in ultrasonic energy technology.

The new device will be unveiled this week at the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) annual scientific conference in Hollywood, Florida.

HARMONIC ACE® 7 demonstrates greater vascular sealing strength by using advanced hemostasis modes, setting a new standard for ultrasound energy. Bench test shows:

"HARMONIC ACE® 7 adds a 7mm vessel sealing function, making it the best tool for laparoscopic colon surgery. It provides the same precise anatomy as HARMONIC ACE® and now has greater vessel sealing capabilities," Texa Said Bartley Pickron, MD, a colon and rectal surgeon at the Colorectal Surgery Association of Houston, S.A. "For many years, surgeons have had to choose between precision and seal strength. With HARMONIC ACE® 7, we no longer need to sacrifice precision and versatility for seal strength. In addition, avoiding the use of multiple instruments should be possible Save the cost of the entire procedure."

HARMONIC ACE® 7 is designed to be used in a variety of surgeries and specialties, including general surgery, colorectal, bariatric, gynecology, thoracic, and urology, enhancing the surgeon's ability to handle multiple tasks with excellent precision. The new HARMONIC ACE® 7 is most suitable for cases that require anatomy, mobility and closure of large blood vessels.

"HARMONIC ACE® 7 represents a breakthrough in ultrasound technology and can now enhance the surgeon’s choice. Surgeons no longer need to sacrifice precision and versatility for sealing strength. In some cases, it can also reduce the need for additional equipment ( Such as the need for clips) to improve process efficiency," said Tom O'Brien, vice president of global strategic marketing for Ethicon Energy. "Our goal is to continue to bring a powerful combination of meaningful innovations (such as HARMONIC ACE® 7) and value solutions (such as our new performance certification HARMONIC® program) to market, and we believe this will change the conversation in clinical practice From “innovation” or “value dialogue to innovation” and “value dialogue, this may ultimately lead to improved results and lower healthcare costs.”
