Title: VESSEL SEALING AND DIVIDING LAPAROSCOPIC DEVICE
Abstract:
An electrosurgical forceps includes a handle assembly including a movable handle pivotably connected to a fixed handle, an elongated shaft extending distally from the fixed handle, an end effector disposed at a distal end of the elongated shaft, and a drive member slidably disposed within the elongated shaft. The drive member includes a proximal end pivotably coupled to the movable handle and a distal end operably coupled to the end effector. A first movement of the movable handle relative to the distal handle causes a first distal movement of the drive member to effect a first function of the end effector, and a second movement of the movable handle relative to the fixed handle causes a second distal movement of the drive member to effect a second function of the end effector.
