Ethicon Endo-Surgery Introduces First Powered Endocutter with Enhanced System-Wide Compression and Stability, Allowing Surgeons Greater Control in Laparoscopic Surgery
Date:9/27/2011

CINCINNATI, Sept. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To further reduce the risk of tissue trauma during laparoscopic surgery, Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. (EES), announced today the launch of the ECHELON FLEX™ Powered ENDOPATH® Stapler -- the industry's first powered endocutter with enhanced system-wide compression and stability. Developed in collaboration with surgeons worldwide, Powered ECHELON FLEX™ allows greater instrument stability with at least 63 percent reduction in tip movement during tissue cutting and stapling compared to the Endo GIA™ Ultra and the Endo GIA™ Universal.(1, 2)

More Stability, More Confident Stapling with Powered ECHELON FLEX™When using endoscopic stapling devices in laparoscopic surgical procedures, stability is critical to the safe and effective use of the device. Surgeons need stapling devices to operate smoothly and consistently to reduce inadvertent movement of the distal tip during firing; potentially resulting in less trauma to the targeted area and surrounding vital organs and tissue from damage. The Powered ECHELON FLEX™ Stapler is the first powered endocutter with system-wide compression and stability, meaning it delivers consistent, properly formed staples across the entire length of the staple line by maintaining a uniform gap in the jaws from the instrument's proximal end to distal tip.

According to Robin Blackstone, M.D., FACS, Medical Director and Bariatric Surgeon at the Scottsdale Healthcare Bariatric Center, "the benefits of the device are immediately evident when you use it. I am particularly pleased with the control and ease of operation of the Powered ECHELON FLEX™ stapler, which provides smooth, consistent compression and firing, and maneuverability. I can see how it will be of enormous value in procedures that involve thick tissue and challenging angles."
