Habib® 4X Bipolar Resection Device

Habib-4XThe Habib 4X bipolar resection device is designed to reduce blood loss, shorten OR time and shorten ICU and overall hospital stays, as well as offer the ability to perform non-clamping surgery and avoid warm ischemia side effects.* Based on clinical data, the average time for an individual ablation is eight seconds using the Habib 4X bipolar resection device. It is primarily used in liver resections and partial nephrectomy.

  • Four-electrode bipolar resection device
  • Uses radiofrequency (RF) energy for tissue coagulation
  • Coagulates organs' parenchyma and vessels in seconds
  • Used with Model 1500X RF Generator – fully automated Habib mode
    with automatic RF shut off and remote foot pedal control available
  • Significantly reduces chances for blood transfusions
  • Spare functional portions of cirrhotic liver
  • Lowers the occurrence of liver failure & bile leakage as a result of blood loss reduction and functional tissue sparing

Important Risk Information

INDICATION FOR USE: The Habib 4X device is used to transmit bipolar radiofrequency energy (provided by the 1500X RF Generator) and to assist in intraoperative coagulation of tissue during surgical procedures. The Habib 4X Laparoscopic device is used to transmit bipolar radiofrequency energy (provided by the 1500X RF Generator) and to develop a plane of coagulative necrosis along the intended line of transection. The tissue can subsequently be divided with a conventional scalpel through this zone of necrosis. CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts the sale of these devices by or on the order of a physician. CONTRAINDICATIONS: Do not use on patients with cardiac pacemakers or other active implants. WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS: For single use only. Do not bend/kink the needle arrays or attach anything (i.e., clamps, etc.) to the device; inadvertent patient injury may result. Do not use needle-monitoring or dispersive electrodes. This device may interfere with the operation of other electronic equipment. Improper placement or handling of bipolar electrodes while RF is on may lead to burns. Please see package insert for complete list of warnings and precautions and observe all instructions prior to use. POTENTIAL COMPLICATIONS: Possible complications include problems related to general anesthetics, bleeding, liver abscess, bile leak, liver failure, subphrenic abscess, postoperative heart failure, chest infection, wound dehiscence, wound infection or incisional hernia.

Indications, contraindications, warnings and instructions for use can be found in the instructions for use supplied with each device. Observe all instructions prior to use. Failure to do so may result in patient complications.
