Ethicon Launches New Echelon+ Stapler With GST Reloads To Increase Staple Line Security And Reduce Complications In Surgery

IN.PACT AV Drug-Coated Balloon Is First and Only to Show Superior and Sustained Results Through Two Years Compared to PTA in Treating Arteriovenous Fistulae Lesions

The data, which were presented virtually as a podium first at the 2021 Charing Cross Symposium, demonstrated that the IN.PACT™ AV drug-coated balloon (DCB) is the first and only DCB to show sustained and superior effectiveness through two years compared to standard percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients with de novo or non-stented restenotic native arteriovenous fistulae (AVF) in the upper extremity.

Martell Diagnostic Laboratories Announces HERTEST: Groundbreaking Way to Detect Effectiveness of Breast Cancer RX Globally

Ethicon recently announced the global launch of the ECHELON+ Stapler with GST Reloads, a new powered surgical stapler designed to increase staple line security and reduce complications through more uniform tissue compression and better staple formation, even in challenging situations.

The ECHELON+ Stapler is the latest addition to the company’s market-leading ECHELON Powered Stapler portfolio.  The portfolio has been associated with improved clinical and economic outcomes including fewer bleeding complications, reduced hospital costs, and improved efficiency across, procedures, patient populations, and countries in large-scale retrospective studies.

Several innovative design features distinguish the new device from previous staplers including a reengineered ECHELON+ Anvil, that with Gripping Surface Technology (GST) Reloads, is designed for more uniform compression to better capture and form staples, as well as a new motor with Dynamic Firing, which optimizes firing speed in thick tissue to enhance compression and improve audible feedback. In recent benchtop testing, the ECHELON+ Stapler outperformed Medtronic’s Signia and EndoGIA Staplers with Tri-Staple Reloads providing better staple formation and reducing leaks at the staple line.

“The ECHELON+ Stapler is a meaningful innovation that addresses a key concern of bariatric surgeons, improving staple line security to help reduce complications,” said Joseph Northup, MD, Medical Director, Premier Weight Loss Solutions.

Despite recent advances in surgical stapling technology, perioperative complications persist across specialties.  Complications are driven primarily by postoperative anastomotic leaks and bleeding-related complications which may occur in up to 12% of colorectal resections and in 2% to 10% of lobectomies, respectively.

“The launch of the ECHELON+ Stapler with GST Reloads is another milestone in our continuing commitment to evidence-based innovation that can enhance the surgeon’s experience, improve patient outcomes and deliver meaningful clinical and economic value. Our goal is to always elevate the standard of surgical care,” said Tom O’Brien, Worldwide Endomechanical President, Ethicon.
