Features & Benefits

Contour Stapler is designed to be reloaded

Designed to be Reloaded

CONTOUR Curved Cutter Stapler has a unique curved head and tissue retaining pin, which may be used to prevent overloading of the tissue in the jaws of the device. The knife extends to the retaining pin and the staple line extends beyond the pin, supporting multiple firings when needed to complete a single transection.

Contour Stapler with Echelon Circular Powered Stapler

Fewer Leaks at the Staple Line

CONTOUR Stapler combined with ECHELON CIRCULAR™ Powered Stapler had significantly fewer leaks at the staple line.*

Contour Stapler has more precise transection and less tissue slippage

Less Tissue Slippage

With its parallel closure and tissue retaining pin, CONTOUR Stapler provided 78% less tissue slippage during firing compared to Radial Reload with Tri-Staple Technology.

Designed for Deep Pelvic Access

CONTOUR Stapler, with its unique curved head, has a 21% smaller head width than Radial Reload with Tri‐Staple™ Technology, allowing placement of a 40mm cutline in a 30mm space.

* Benchtop testing in porcine colon compared the rate of staple line leak failure at ≤30mmHg, compared Ethicon CDH29P/CS40B/CR40B to Medtronic EEA2835/EGIAUSTND/EGIARADMT, n=30 ea p=0.005. Leak rate at ≤30mmHg was selected based on a preclinical study that measured the intraluminal pressure associated with an intra-operative leak test by surgeons (n=31). Average selected pressure was 26 +/-1.8 mmHg.
