THUNDERBEAT Open Extended Jaw is specially Designed for Open Surgical Procedures

Dec 20 2014 Read 1171 Times

THUNDERBEAT Open Extended Jaw is based on the established THUNDERBEAT concept of synergistic energies. With one crucial difference: the instrument has been further optimised to suit the requirements of open surgery. Compared to the laparoscopy model, it is shorter overall, but its jaws are 25% longer to enable comfortable use. THUNDERBEAT Open Extended Jaw cuts quickly, reliably seals blood vessels, and enables very precise tissue dissection, without any unwanted bleeding. The ergonomics of the handle have also been adjusted to facilitate accurate operations.


In addition to general surgery, the THUNDERBEAT Open Extended Jaw is particularly suitable for gynaecological and urological procedures. As with the THUNDERBEAT model for laparoscopies, the THUNDERBEAT Open Extended Jaw can also be used in the integrated Olympus ENDOALPHA operating room.

The laparoscopic THUNDERBEAT was launched on the market in 2012. In its development, Olympus was focused on a very clear goal: The instrument needed to be as versatile as possible in order to reduce the number of instrument changes, decrease operation time, and limit blood loss, thereby enabling procedures to be performed in a more precise and gentle manner. This also meant added safety for patients and surgeons. THUNDERBEAT is the world’s first instrument to combine a bipolar high-frequency current with ultrasound technology to create a synergistic form of energy, which reliably

cuts and seals tissue and vessels in one step, thereby enabling fast, precise and safe surgical procedures.


THUNDERBEAT is currently the fastest cutting instrument of its kind. It allows surgeons to reliably seal blood vessels up to and including 7 millimetres in diameter, with minimal thermal spread. The instrument is extremely versatile, as it provides surgeons with a dissector, cutting instrument (ultrasound) and sealing instrument (bipolar) in one product. The THUNDERBEAT system consists of two generators. In addition to its ultrasound generator, it also features a complete, integrated high-frequency (HF) generator compatible with most conventional HF instruments found in operating theatres, rendering the use of different HF systems superfluous.
