[Quick Take] Interview with Kirt Kirtland, President & CEO of Starion Instruments

Starion Instruments‘ uses focused thermal energy and pressure to simultaneously seal and divide tissue. By applying direct heat instead of electrical, radio frequency or ultrasonic energy, Starion products can reduce unintended thermal injury, minimize instrument exchange, improve visibility by reducing smoke, splatter, and can be used close to vital and delicate structures.

Starion recently released the next generation Thermal Ligating Shears (TLS3), which features two active jaws with heating elements on each, creating a uniform, higher integrity seal in less time. The ability to grasp and dissect soft tissue, as well as seal and divide, reduces the need for instrument exchanges.
