  • Reduces acute bleeding at the staple line when compared to non-buttressed reloads on small bowel([FOOTNOTE=Reinforced Reload Bench Top Testing, Acute Hemostasis in Canine Small Bowel, 11/26/13, Report # 2183-075 (Published Model, applicable to EGIA60AMT reload).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Provides a higher leak pressure point when compared to non-buttressed reloads in in-vivo canine bowel([FOOTNOTE=Reinforced Reload Bench Top Testing, In Vivo Leak Testing in Canine Bowel, 12/2013, Report # 2183-075-In Vivo Competitive Testing (Published Model, applicable to EGIA60AMT reload).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Lowers rate of air leaks at the staple line vs. non-buttressed reloads at 40 mmHg([FOOTNOTE=Reinforced Reload Bench Top Testing, Acute Pneumostasis in Canine Lung, 11/20/13, Report # 2183-075 (Published Model, applicable to EGIA60AMT reload).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • In a preclinical thoracic model, the reinforced reload performed comparably to SeamGuard™* with respect to impact to adjacent tissue structures([FOOTNOTE=Reinforced Reload Pre-Clinical Testing, Abrasion Assessment of Staple Line Reinforcement Materials in the Thorax of a Canine, 4/4/13, Report #2183-027.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Reinforced reload buttress material is absorbable, absorbent and soft, and allows tissue in-growth([FOOTNOTE=Reinforced Reload Pre-Clinical Testing, In-Vitro Benchtop Stiffness; 10/1/13; Report #2183-033-0; Report: In vitro Mass Loss; 1/23/14 (2183-060-0).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Reinforced reload buttress material mass loss is comparable to SeamGuard™* ([FOOTNOTE=Reinforced Reload Pre-Clinical Testing, In-Vitro Mass Loss; Report: In vitro Mass Loss; 1/23/14 (2183-060-0).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • May save a hospital between 7-10 minutes of OR time per procedure due to the preloaded benefit([FOOTNOTE="Survey of tissue reinforcement users to determine waste and time loss attributed to separately loaded buttress materials in the OR."
