Overview
Request Rep Follow-up

ECHELON ENDOPATH™ Staplers provide uniform, consistent staple formation for hemostasis in a wide range of tissue thicknesses. They have a wide proximal to distal jaw aperture, and they work with a wide range of cartridges which all fit down a 12mm trocar.*

Optimal staple formation, even in thick tissue

  • Enhanced system-wide compression enables proper staple formation, which is necessary to achieve a leak-proof and hemostatic staple line
  • Compression before firing gently exudes fluid from targeted tissue before firing
  • Alignment during firing ensures a uniform distance between the anvil and cartridge surfaces during firing

  • * Note: Fits down all Ethicon Endo-Surgery 12mm trocars.

Safety features

  • Safety lockout prevents inadvertent firing of empty, or misloaded cartridges
  • Manual release allows for surgeon-controlled, reverse knife motion in the middle of a firing sequence

One-handed operation

  • Can close and fire the device with one hand, allowing free hand to manage tissue
  • The anvil release button allows one-handed opening of the jaws with the thumb after completion of the firing process

Automatic knife return

  • The first three strokes cut and fire staples
  • Knife retracts automatically when transection is complete and firing trigger is released

Wide range of cartridges

  • Accommodates various tissue thicknesses, all with 6-row stapling capability
  • All cartridges fit through a 12mm trocar*

Compression before firing

The entire ECHELON ENDOPATH™ platform gently exudes fluid from targeted tissue before firing.

  • This helps bring tissue to a compressed thickness appropriate for uniform hemostatic staple line
  • The anvil is designed to compress tissue over the recommended 15-second period prior to firing

Alignment during firing

The 3-point gap control mechanism of the ECHELON ENDOPATH™ platform ensures uniform distance between the anvil and cartridge surfaces during firing. This is achieved by maintaining 3 separate points of alignment as the knife travels from the proximal end to the distal tip.

  • Once the appropriate cartridge for the compressed tissue thickness is loaded, the gap between anvil and cartridge remains consistent during firing
  • Delivers consistent, properly formed staples across the entire length of the staple line by maintaining a uniform gap in the jaws from proximal end to distal tip

The spectrum of tissue compression

The 15 second precompression excludes fluid from tissue, which helps ensure a more consistent thickness in targeted tissue. You must apply enough pressure to achieve good hemostasis and a leak-free anastomosis, but too much pressure can injure the tissue. The correct compression with the correct staple height ensures a proper staple line while maintaining respect for tissue properties.
