The Lexington, Mass.-based company touted the newly released FMsealer as the only vessel sealing instrument based on ferromagnetic surgical energy, which it claims provides quick transection with minimal thermal impact on surrounding tissue.
The device is cleared for sealing vessles up to 7mm in diameter, including lymphatics in open and laparoscopic procedures, OmniGuide said.
“The FMsealer Laparoscopic Shears offers intuitive plug-and-play capabilities with our award-winning FMX Ferromagnetic Surgical System; expanding the utility of our electrically silent precision-based surgical platform. The FMsealer provides surgeons with an optimal combination of reliability, efficiency, customization, and safety in a variety of laparoscopic procedures, without passing potentially dangerous electrical current through the patient,” OmniGuide CEO John Buhler said in a prepared statement.
OmniGuide said that the FMsealer had been shown to be safe and effective in a peer-reviewed article of the device published last year in the journal Surgical Laparoscopy, Endoscopy & Percutaneous Techniques.
OmniGuide acquired Domain Surgical and its FMX ferromagnetic surgical system in August 2016 for an undisclosed amount.
