Overview
CONTOUR Curved Cutter Stapler

The CONTOUR Curved Cutter Stapler can be used for lower pelvic access with enhanced visibility and allows placement of a 40mm cut line in the width of a 30mm space.

Simplify your colorectal procedures with a device that delivers four curvilinear rows of staples with a single cut between. You eliminate two steps: the need for a bowel clamp and scalpel.

This cutter is:

  • Uniquely designed – curved head designed for lower pelvic access and enhanced visibility
  • Efficient – simultaneous stapling and cutting
  • Easy to use – increased shaft length allows access to lower pelvis without handle obstruction, and intermediate locking position makes it easy to place on tissue.

The CONTOUR Curved Cutter Stapler is now indicated for skeletal muscle stapling in above-/below-knee amputation procedures. It provides uniform, consistent staple formation for hemostasis in the thicker muscular tissue. The result: less tissue trauma at the point of transection compared to electrocautery for the muscle transection.

Description & Specs
CONTOUR Curved Cutter Stapler

The CONTOUR Curved Cutter Stapler is a multi-fire, single-patient-use device with a curved head that cuts and staples. It delivers four staggered rows of titanium staples, with a knife between the second and third row, and creates a 40mm curved transection in the width of a 30mm space Designed to prevent closures if there is no (or a used) reload and, when properly loaded, won't fire unless the closing trigger is latched in the closed position. A retaining pin holds the tissue in place and can be positioned manually.

The instrument may be reloaded five times during a single procedure. Each reload cartridge module includes a knife blade with two staggered rows of staples on each side. Reload cartridges are available in two sizes to accommodate various tissue thicknesses.

Features include:

  • Unique curved head – designed for lower pelvic access and enhanced visibility
  • Placement of 40mm cut line in width of 30mm space
  • Simultaneous stapling/cutting fewer procedure steps
  • Manual retaining pin placement option – capture of intended tissue before closing device
  • Reloadable  up to six firings in a procedure
  • Longer shaft length than other linear staplers – designed for lower pelvic access without handle obstruction
  • Ergonomic design for one-handed placement, closure and firing.

Procedure applications:

  • Colorectal
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Orthopedic – Skeletal muscle stapling
