J&J’s Ethicon Releases Harmonic HD 1000i Surgical Shears

Oct. 20, 2016

Ethicon has launched its Harmonic HD 1000i surgical shears, which are designed for procedures involving thoracic, hepato-pancreato-billary, colorectal and gynecologic oncology.

The device has a tapered jaw to enable improved precision access to tissue planes and a shape that mimics a mechanical dissector.

The Cincinnati-based company won FDA approval for the shears in July. — Cynthia Jessup
