Tri-Staple™ Technology – 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 clamping1
- May allow greater perfusion into the staple line2
- Provides outstanding 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 Reloads3.
No single stapler can address the wide range of tissue management issues surgeons face on a daily basis. That's why Covidien has developed a portfolio of specialty stapling solutions within the Tri-Staple™ technology portfolio to provide the right tool to meet each specific challenge.
