Stapling Made Smarter

Tri-Staple™ technology reloads are designed to work in harmony with the natural properties of tissue to optimize performance before, during and after stapling. With its stepped cartridge face, Tri-Staple™ technology delivers graduated compression, optimizing interaction between the tissue and stapler because it:

  • Generates less stress on tissue 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 (data on file).],[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 (data on file).],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Provides superior performance in variable thicknesses

The improved design of the stronger fixed anvil and I-beam incorporated into the Tri-Staple™ technology reload results in improved staple line strength, leak resistance and hemostasis when compared to the universal reloads.([FOOTNOTE=Covidien Bench Top Testing.

No single stapler can address the wide range of tissue management issues surgeons face on a daily basis. That's why we have developed a portfolio of specialty stapling solutions within the Tri-Staple™ technology portfolio to provide the right tool to meet each specific challenge.
