Optimal staple formation, even in thick tissue1

  • Enhanced system-wide compression aids in proper staple formation, which is necessary to achieve a leak resistant 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
  • All cartridges fit through a 12mm trocar§

Stay focused on the surgical field without interruption

  • Natural, one-handed operation allows the surgeon to focus on the line of transection and place the anvil exactly where needed
  • Facilitates tissue positioning/manipulation with its wide proximal to distal jaw aperture
  • Allows the surgeon to rotate, articulate and fire with one hand
