SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intuitive (Nasdaq: ISRG), a global technology leader in minimally invasive care and the pioneer of robotic-assisted surgery, today announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance of two innovative technologies for two of the company’s da Vinci® surgical systems to help improve procedures that require sealing.
Intuitive’s E-100 generator is its first internally developed robotic generator to power two key instruments on the da Vinci X® and Xi™ systems. Vessel Sealer Extend is the flagship instrument in the da Vinci energy sealing portfolio today, and the new SynchroSeal instrument offers enhanced capabilities1 in general surgery.
We are pleased to receive FDA clearance, providing surgeons an additional tool for the X and Xi da Vinci platforms,” said Bob DeSantis, Intuitive’s Senior Vice President and General Manager for Instruments and Accessories. “We developed SynchroSeal and the E-100 generator to help surgeons quickly seal and transect tissue and vessels, facilitating efficient technique.”

The E-100 is Intuitive’s first generator and is offered as an upgrade to power Vessel Sealer Extend and SynchroSeal. SynchroSeal will enable a surgeon to perform rapid1 one-step sealing and transection with a single pedal press.
SynchroSeal uses advanced bipolar energy from its raised cut electrode to transect tissue then cool down quickly2, and will allow surgeons to move on to the next step. With its wristed articulation, its rapid sealing cycle, and refined curved jaw, SynchroSeal offers enhanced versatility to the da Vinci Energy portfolio1.

About the da Vinci Surgical System
There are several models of the da Vinci surgical system. The da Vinci surgical systems are designed to help surgeons perform minimally invasive surgery. Da Vinci systems offer surgeons high-definition 3D vision, a magnified view, and robotic and computer assistance. They use specialized instrumentation, including a miniaturized surgical camera and wristed instruments (i.e., scissors, scalpels and forceps) that are designed to help with precise dissection and reconstruction deep inside the body.
