DST Series™ EEA™ staplers embody the Covidien commitment to innovation and collaboration with the surgical community. The 6th generation of circular staplers incorporates three decades of experience and input from leading bariatric, colorectal, and general surgeons throughout the world.
Incorporating proprietary directional stapling technology (DST), 3.5mm staples, and a host of other unique features, the DST Series™ EEA™ stapler provides unprecedented clinical performance, ease of use, and versatility.
The DST Series™ EEA™ OrVil™ 21 mm device is a DST Series™ EEA™ 21 mm anvil assembly, and the DST Series™ EEA™ OrVil™ 25 mm device is a DST Series™ EEA™ 25 mm anvil assembly, both with the anvil head secured in the tilted position.
The anvil assembly is mounted on a 90 cm long PVC delivery tube and is secured to the tube with a suture. When used with the DST Series™ EEA™ XL 21 or 25 mm stapler, a circular, double staggered row of titanium staples is placed. Immediately after staple formation, the stapler knife blade resects the excess tissue, creating a circular anastomosis. The diameter of the staple line is 21 mm or 25 mm, depending on the device selected.
The EEA™ hemorrhoid and prolapse stapler set with DST Series™ technology is designed for use as a stapler instrument for control of rectal prolapse and hemorrhoid disease. The instrument places a circular, double-staggered row of titanium DST™ staples and removes a circular tissue specimen. It is offered in a 33 mm diameter size with either 3.5 mm or 4.8 mm staples.
The accompanying accessories include an access port, anoscope, and dilator.
Valtrac™ devices are biofragmentable rings for end-to-end, end-to-side and side-to-side anastomosis.
