ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler

The ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler is designed to reduce leaks without compromising perfusion—which can result in 61% fewer leaks at the staple line compared to the Medtronic DST Series EEA Stapler.1*

ECHELON CIRCULAR™ Powered Stapler

Features & Benefits

  • ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler Card 1

    3D Stapling Technology

    Can reduce potential leak paths.2# Designed with offset closure of the staple legs, 3D Stapling Technology can evenly distribute compression throughout the anastomosis.2#

  • ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler Card 2

    Gripping Surface Technology

    Gentler handling: can reduce compressive forces on tissue by 33%.3† Gives precise compression only where it is needed to prepare the tissue for staple formation.3†

  • ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler Card 3

    61% fewer leaks at the staple line4‡
     

    Optimized perfusion. Reduced leaks at the staple line.4‡ Benchtop testing in porcine tissue comparing ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler to Medtronic DST Series EEA Stapler showed that the ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler provides significantly fewer leaks at the staple line without compromising perfusion, compared to the Medtronic DST Series EEA Stapler.1*  Read the study in the Clinical Evidence section below.6


     

  • ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler Card 4

    Powered firing platform

    Reduced force to fire by 97% compared to the Medtronic DST Series EEA Stapler. Push button firing has significantly reduced movement at the distal tip for increased stability. It is designed to minimize variation in usage and standardize performance across users.9

    The Management of Anastomotic Leaks

    Reviewed studies on post-operative colorectal anastomotic leaks showed mean rates of 6.1%10 to 13.5%11 of the cases, and substantial cost increase. The new ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler is designed to reduce leaks at the staple line.1* Read the studies in the Clinical Evidence section below.10-12
