Olympus launches POWERSEAL Sealer/Divider, a next level surgical bipolar energy device in EMEA

Olympus has announced the full market launch of POWERSEAL Sealer/Divider for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. This multifunctional advanced bipolar device supports surgeons across multiple different medical specialties with state-of-the-art sealing, dissection and grasping capabilities for both laparoscopic and open surgical treatments. It complements the existing unique hybrid technology of THUNDERBEAT and with this, strengthens Olympus’ advanced energy portfolio.

POWERSEAL Sealer/Divider

POWERSEAL’s unique proprietary jaw design ensures maximum control of bleeding and enhanced dissection capability. It enables surgeons to completely focus on patient and process owning to best-in-class control, efficiency, safety and performance, whereas patients benefit from an increasingly minimally invasive treatment. POWERSEAL Sealer/Divider reduces the squeezing force required to close the jaw – without sacrificing sealing strength. Along with improved ergonomics that ensure the device fits comfortably in the hand, surgeons benefit from comfort during surgery all while delivering a superior user experience.

“I found that POWERSEAL was faster than other options”, said Dr Nikhilesh R Shekhar, New York Presbyterian, New York Bariatric Group. “POWERSEAL provides quick bloodless seals of the vessels.”

POWERSEAL Sealer/Divider supports the treatment of colon, stomach, lung and other major types of cancer – but also non-cancer conditions – and can therefore be applied in various medical specialties, from lower to upper gastrointestinal surgery and gynaecology, as well as in urology and other areas.

“We are thrilled to finally offer POWERSEAL to customers in the EMEA region after it’s already proven its premium quality in many non-European markets around the world,” said Tilman Kamlah, Head of Surgical Endoscopy at Olympus Europa. “POWERSEAL supports treatments of major types of cancer, but also non-cancer conditions, offering reliable sealing of vessels, best-in-class dissection, and enhanced usability during surgery. With POWERSEAL, we are completing our comprehensive advanced energy portfolio allowing hospital departments to standardize, reduce costs and complexity.”

“Initial clinical experience has shown that the new 5mm POWERSEAL devices offer uniform tissue compression for consistently strong sealing,” said Dr Justin A Maykel, Chief of Colon and Rectal Surgery at UMass Memorial Health. “The product design makes the devices both intuitive and safe to use.”
