  • Causa
    Intuitive surgical has identified the potential for a certain, small portion of vessel sealers to exhibit interference in the proximal end (near the joint) of the instrument grips. this interference is due to manufacturing variability in some jaws. the interference can lead to contact between the instrument electrodes at the back of the jaws and subsequent shorting of the electrosurgical energy. the shorting behaviour can lead to extended activation times and insufficient energy delivery to thin, vascular tissue bundles, leading to bleeding if transected. this issue has been identified on a small population of vessel sealers only when used on thin, vascular tissue. there has been no impact identified to sealing performance on larger vessels or tissue bundles.
