AEM® Shielded Instruments highlighted for unique patient safety in laparoscopic surgery. Click here to watch the full NBC Los Angeles Investigative Report on Stray Energy Burns.



Every ninety minutes in the United States, a patient is severely injured from a stray energy burn acquired during laparoscopic surgery*. These completely preventable burns kill 1-2 people per day, during common procedures such as a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic hernia, laparoscopic appendectomy, and LAVH. Encision’s AEM® Shielded Instruments are the only way to eliminate these burns, caused by monopolar energy insulation failure and capacitive coupling, reducing complications and readmissions.
