Overview

Addressing the Challenges of Advanced Tissue Management

With the thickest indicated tissue range for any stapler on the market (2.25 mm – 3.00 mm)1, the Endo GIA™ radial reload delivers optimal performance, even in challenging cases.

In colorectal procedures, the Endo GIA™ radial reload is setting new standards for access, maneuverability and staple line security in LAR procedures. It may provide surgeons uncompromised access and visibility deep in the pelvis. Surgeons can operate with confidence across a broader range of tissue thickness and lower in the pelvis compared to Ethicon Contour®*([FOOTNOTE=Rivadeneira DE, Verdeja JC, Sonoda T. Improved Access and Visibility During Stapling of the Ultra-low Rectum: A Comparative Human Cadaver Study Between Two Curved Staplers. Ann Surg Innov and Res 2012; 6:1.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

For thoracic procedures, the unique design and 360 degree rotation provides multiple angles and enhances access in the chest cavity for both open and VATS procedures compared to linear reloads. The Endo GIA™ radial reload may produce less stress during compression and clamping([FOOTNOTE=When compared to Echelon Flex™* green reloads as part of a September 2, 2011 analysis comparing different stapler designs and their performance and impact on tissues under compression using two-dimensional finite element analysis (Covidien engineering report PCG-007).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]), may allow greater perfusion into the staple line([FOOTNOTE=When compared to Ethicon Echelon Flex™* green reloads as part of a bench study conducted August 16-18, 2011 that measured fluid perfusion into clamped media among different stapler designs (Covidien Engineering Report PCR-007).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]), and provides outstanding performance in variable tissue thicknesses.
