Ethicon Powered Staplers and outcomes in thoracoscopic surgery

ECHELON FLEX Staplers Have Been Associated with Improved Clinical and Economic Outcomes

ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Staplers vs. Medtronic non-powered staplers has been associated with reduction in hemostasis-related complications,§ shorter length of stay, and improved hemostasis outcomes without increasing cost** in VATS Lobectomy (Video Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery).

More flexibility during placement

More Flexibility During Placement

11% greater articulation in each direction vs Endo GIA™ Tri-Staple™. ECHELON Flex Powered Vascular Stapler provides a span of 100° which may make it easier to access structures in the tight thoracic cavity.††
