Abstract

During the application of advanced bipolar energy, it is necessary to inhibit the activation of the transection blade until the tissue treatment is completed. One indication of completed tissue treatment is elevation of the temperature of the tissue. If the transection blade is activated early it can prevent proper sealing of the tissue, adversely impacting the patient.
