Use of Enseal Tissue Sealer for Pulmonary Right Lower Lobectomy

Whittaker G, Joshi V, Granato F. Use of Enseal Tissue Sealer for Pulmonary Right Lower Lobectomy. September 2021. doi:10.25373/ctsnet.16624324

The Enseal® Tissue Sealer device is used as an important instrument for performing a pulmonary right lower lobectomy. This instrument can be used in a number of ways, including: grasping, blunt dissection, sharp dissection, and coagulation. This results in fewer instrument swaps and therefore reduced operative time and instrumentation.

In this video, the use of the Enseal® Tissue Sealer device is demonstrated as a useful adjunct for pulmonary resection. This cost-effective tool has been shown to be effective in the following operative steps:

  1. Safe and efficient dissection of soft tissues including adhesions;
  2. Division of pulmonary artery vessels up to 7mm in diameter as a cost-effective alternative to stapler reloads; and
  3. Lymph node dissection and sampling with minimal tissue and blood loss.

The resected tumour was a T2bN0M0 adenocarcinoma of the right lower lobe.
