Surgical Stapling

Our surgical stapling portfolio addresses the challenges of tissue thickness, tissue movement during firing, staple line security, and tissue tension with the objective of providing greater stapling precision in surgery.

Surgical Stapling

The ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler provides 61% fewer leaks at the staple line without compromising perfusion compared to the Medtronic manual DST Series EEA Stapler.1*

33%

Delivers precise compression with a 33%reduction in compressive forces on tissue compared to the Medtronic manual DST Series EEA Stapler.2#

37%

Provided greater stability with 37% less distal tip movement during firing compared to Medtronic’s manual DST Series EEA Stapler.3†

3D

Produces 21% more comprehensive compression and reduces potential leak paths compared to the Medtronic DST Series EEA Stapler.4‡

97%

The ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler significantly reduces force to fire by 97% with powered,push button firing compared to the Medtronic manual DST Series EEA Stapler.
