Overview

Transforming Surgical Stapling Single-Handedly

Tissue varies but your staple lines shouldn’t. That's why the Signia™ stapling system delivers consistent staple lines([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #R2146-151-0, Powered stapling firing speed DOE analysis and ASA parameters. 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #R2146-173-0, ASA verification testing with slow speed force limit evaluation. 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) — across variable tissue — and the benefits they bring to patients.

The world’s first smart stapler, the Signia™ system combines the proven performance of Tri-Staple™ technology with the power of real-time feedback. Our reposable handle also gives you the precision of fully powered rotation, articulation, and firing([FOOTNOTE=Drew S, Tarek T, Donald P.

Features

Powered Articulation, Rotation, and Firing with One Hand

The world’s first smart stapler is here. And it’s transforming surgical stapling — single-handedly.

Because the Signia™ stapler:

  • Delivers consistent staple lines1,2
  • Provides precision and maneuverability with fully powered articulation, rotation, and clamping3
  • Displays real-time feedback on an easy-to-understand LED screen4
  • Frees your other hand to focus on the surgical site4
  • Feels well-balanced in your hand during use([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #RE00027558, Signia™ powered stapler center of Mass. 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

The Signia™ stapler is compatible with our existing reload portfolio featuring the proven performance of Tri-Staple™ technology, which:

  • Generates less stress on tissue([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #PCG-007 rev 1, When compared to Echelon Flex™* green reloads as part of an analysis comparing different stapler designs and their performance and impact on tissues under compression using two-dimensional finite element analysis. Sept. 2, 2011.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Allows greater perfusion into the staple line([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #2128-002-2, Final analysis of staple line vascularity using MicroCT. April 27, 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
  • Delivers outstanding performance in variable tissue

It’s when paired with Tri-Staple™ 2.0 reloads and Signia™ loading units with Tri-Staple™ 2.0 cartridges that you’ll get the enhanced performance of our smart stapling system. See our technology section to learn more.

Components

The Signia™ Stapling System is a reposable platform which means that some parts are single partients use, however other parts are reusable so we can bring innovative technology within an acceptable cost structure.

The Signia™ Stapling System is also an expandable platform, meaning that in the future we will add new components and software updates so we can bring meaningful advances in stapling technology based on one intelligent handle.

Technology

The Signia™ stapler adapts to tissue variability1,2 and lets you know — before you fire — with visual and audible feedback from the handle. This is made possible by Adaptive Firing™ technology and real-time feedback.1,2,8

When you clamp on tissue, the Signia™ stapler:

  • Displays real-time feedback, showing the device is ready to fire8
  • Sets one of three firing speeds based on the tissue variability1,2
  • Adjusts firing speed based on tissue variability and thickness1,2,6

Acknowledging a clinical challenge

Appropriate selection of the cartridge for the tissue to be divided is essential in the clinical setting, but it’s not always easy or possible to determine the thickness of the tissue intraoperatively.9

The Signia™ system’s continuous clamp force measurements — displayed on the handle in real time during a procedure — give you information about stapling conditions. Higher clamp force measurements may indicate thicker tissues and more challenging tissue applications.1,2

The Signia™ system adapts to these changing surgical conditions, by appropriately adjusting firing speed based on force measurements to optimize staple formation1,2 so you get more consistent staple lines.2,6
