ETHICON Linear Cutters

Ethicon Linear Cutters with 3-D staples, enables consistent compression, reduced risk of leaks and superior hemostasis making them ideal for the most challenging procedures.

Grampeadores Lineares Cortantes Ethicon NTLC

Features & Benefits

  • Consistent compression

    Consistent Compression

    3-D staples for more uniform tissue compression than B-form staples. The innovative 3-D surgical staple technology is designed for more uniform tissue compression to reduce the risk of leaks or bleeding through the staple line.

  • Reduced risk of leaks

    Reduced Risk of Leaks

    Helps reduce risk of staple line leakage compared to DST SeriesTM GIATM. The Ethicon Linear Cutter has a 35% higher mean luminal leak pressure when compared to DST Series GIA.

  • Superior hemostasis

    Superior Hemostasis

    Delivers superior hemostasis compared to DST Series GIA. The NTLC75 showed significantly improved hemostasis when compared to the DST Series GIA against a 5-point scale.
