Seal and Cut

Caiman® 12 Articulating

Caiman® 12 Articulating features a unique jaw design, providing uniform compression, resulting in one seal confidence. Caiman® 24 cm and 44 cm shaft is used for a variety of laparoscopic and open surgical applications with articulating tip.

Patented jaw mechanism

The Caiman® 12 Articulating features a jaw engineered like no other. The lower jaw hinge causes the tip of the instrument to close first – capturing tissue and preventing slippage. This unique design then allows the upper and lower jaws to compress tissue in parallel, creating even compression forces distal to proximal.

Versatile jaw design

Caiman® features an articulating jaw, resulting in an instrument that is both powerful and agile, easing navigation through difficult anatomy and tight angles. Only Caiman®'s 50 mm jaws can grab and seal large, complex, tissue bundles, spot weld, or seal and cut areas.

50 mm sealing length

Enlarged vessel sealing length results in improved surgical efficiency.
