Energy-based devices have evolved significantly to meet clinical demands of the operating room. As part of the armamentarium of technology-driven solutions, ultrasonic devices, which derive their dissecting and sealing capabilities from high-frequency vibration, have been found to improve outcomes including operating times and blood loss. Recently, Covidien expanded its portfolio of energy-based surgical instruments to include the Sonicision™ cordless ultrasonic dissection device, indicated for soft tissue dissection and vessel occlusion of up to 5 mm in diameter. With possible applications across different surgical procedures, the Sonicision™ may reduce costs associated with the capital investment of using several devices through technology standardization.
