Tri-Staple™ reinforced reloads are the only endoscopic staplers with preloaded tissue reinforcement for improved ease of use and less waste in the OR.1,†,‡ That convenience comes with the confidence of Tri-Staple™ technology and stronger reinforcement than Seamguard™*.2,§,Ω Plus, it may: 

  • Save an average of 7 to 10 minutes of OR time per procedure1,†,‡

The Tri-Staple™ 2.0 reinforced reload is compatible with all Medtronic handles. When paired with the smart Signia™ stapler, it delivers:

  • More consistent staple formation by adjusting firing speeds when stapling in across different tissue properties([FOOTNOTE=Based on internal report #RE00218740, Signia™ stapling adaptive firing technology data calculations and references.

Stapling made smarter

Tri-Staple™ technology reloads are designed to work in harmony with the natural properties of tissue before, during, and after stapling.
