FDA Clears Sealing Instrument for Intuitive’s Surgical Systems

December 3, 2019

The FDA granted Intuitive clearance for its SynchroSeal vessel sealing instrument and accompanying E-100 generator for its da Vinci surgical systems.

The new devices help surgeons seal and transect tissues and vessels more quickly, improving procedures performed by the company’s da Vinci X and Xi robotically-assisted surgical systems that require sealing.

The SynchroSeal instrument uses advanced bipolar energy to transect tissue and cool down quickly in a one-step process performed with a single pedal press.
