ECHELON CONTOUR™ Curved Cutter

Reduced risk factors for leaks with the improved ECHELON CONTOUR curved cutter.1  The same deep pelvic access you depend on from the original CONTOUR curved cutter,2  but with gentler tissue handling.3

1. Risk factors for leaks include the following: tissue trauma and a staple line with uneven compression. Benchtop testing on porcine colon comparing mean mucosal capture of 46.3% (n=30) for Echelon Contour to 74.46% (n=30) for Contour (p<0.05). Finite element‐based computational simulations (FEA) on simulated porcine tissue measuring tissue compression after approximation and staple formation, comparing average standard deviation of 5.481 for 2D staples to 5.109 for 3D staples (n=37, p<0.05).

2. Unique curved head design gives low pelvic access and enhanced visibility of anatomic structures

4. Benchtop testing in porcine colon comparing mean compression load of 22.35 lbf (n=32) for ECHELON CONTOUR to 32.56 lbf (n=30) for CONTOUR (p<0.05) and comparing mean mucosal capture of 46.3% (n=30) for Echelon Contour to 74.46% (n=30) for Contour (p<0.05).
