Ethicon Launches Echelon Circular as the First Powered Circular Stapler for Colorectal Gastric and Thoracic Surgery

Shots:

  • The Echelon Circular powered stapler combines 3D stapling technology that evenly distributes compression with gripping surface technology (GST) which provides gentler handling for reducing the compression force on tissue
  • The Echelon Circular allows for the creation of air-tight and fluid-tight anastomoses leading to the reduction in leaks by 61% at the staple line without compromising perfusion compared to Medtronic’s DST Series EEA stapler
  • The circular stapler has one-finger push button firing that reduces 97% force to fire and deliver 37% less movement at the distal tip to increase stability, provide surgeons an opportunity to enhance patient outcomes, increase patient satisfaction and reduce the cost to healthcare systems
