Business description: The SurgRx™ EnSeal Laparoscopic Vessel Fusion System allows surgeons to fuse and transect small to large vessels, large pedicles and tissue bundles to achieve surgical hemostasis. Vessel fusion requires controlled pressure and heat. The SurgRx™ EnSeal™ System incorporates Smart Electrode Technology™ and a high compression jaw design to provide secure, rapid vessel fusion with virtually no unwanted thermal effects. It is the first and only system that controls energy deposition at the electrode-tissue interface. Vessel fusion requires controlled pressure and heat.
