A surgical instruments company has unveiled a circular stapler that is helping surgeons in resolving surgery complications.
FREMONT, CA: Ethicon, a medical device company, has launched the industry's first ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler. The newly launched ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler is best used for colorectal, gastric, and thoracic surgery. The stapler integrates two novel Ethicon technologies, which is the 3D Stapling Technology and Gripping Surface Technology (GST). The 3D Stapling Technology evenly distributes compression while GST provides gentler handling to reduce compressive forces on tissues. These technologies, when merged, reduce leaks at the staple line without compromising perfusion. This includes the passage of fluid through the bloodstream or lymphatic system.
The ECHELON CIRCULAR Powered Stapler is a confidence booster for surgeons, creating a secure anastomosis. The stapler's one-finger push-button firing reduces force by 97 percent, delivering 37 percent less movement at the distal tip for enhanced stability. The newly launched stapling device standardizes performance, minimizing variation in usage, leading to improved outcomes. Ethicon increases patient satisfaction and reduces the cost to healthcare systems.
