Tri-Staple™ technology reloads are designed to work in harmony with the natural properties of tissue before, during, and after stapling. Each reload has a stepped cartridge face that delivers graduated compression and three rows of varied height staples.
The result of that design is a reload that provides greater strength and leak resistance4,([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal test report #PCG-002, In-vitro leak comparison. March 08, 2011.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),Ω,†† across procedures.
Each Tri-Staple™ reload has a stepped cartridge face that delivers graduated compression and three rows of varied height staples. This helps generate less stress on tissue during compression and clamping.1,2,†,‡
Tri-Staple™ technology’s graduated compression profile and varied height staples allow greater perfusion into the staple line.3,†
With a stepped cartridge face and graduated staple heights, reloads with Tri-Staple™ technology deliver greater performance across a broad range of thicknesses.2,4,5,6,7,§,Ω
Tri-Staple™ technology reloads are designed to work in harmony with the natural properties of tissue to optimise performance before, during and after stapling. With its stepped cartridge face, Tri-Staple™ technology delivers graduated compression, optimising interaction between the tissue and stapler because it:
Tri-Staple™ technology improves staple line strength, leak resistance, and hemostasis when compared to the universal reloads.([FOOTNOTE=Bench Top Testing. Tyvek Pull Apart Testing, In-Vitro Leak Comparison and In-Vivo Leak Comparison Test.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])
