ECHELON FLEX™ GST System

A better grip on movement

Now experience less tissue slippage during firing with the ECHELON FLEX™ GST System
 

Only the ECHELON FLEX™ GST System* with the combination of the ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Plus Stapler used with proprietary Reloads with GST gives you the following results:

  • 4x less tissue slippage during firing compared to Endo GIA™ Reloads with Tri-Staple Technology for unsurpassed staple formation
    • Transect the tissue you intended the first time with a more targeted tissue transection with each firing
    • May eliminate 1 reload per procedure due to less tissue slippage during firing

  • Only system to provide a uniform closed staple height, now across a range of tissue thicknesses with each reload§
  • Exclusive reloads with Gripping Surface Technology, offering a proprietary ridged surface to provide a superior grip that holds tissue in place during firing

The ECHELON FLEX GST System is built on the stability of a powered firing, allowing 88% less movement at the end effector\\ and potentially less trauma to adjacent tissues.

  • § Porcine tissue thickness measured at 8g/mm² prior to firing. Tissue comfortably compressed to closed staple height per IFU.
  • Benchtop testing in porcine stomach tissue. Mean peak load required to pull tissue from the clamped jaws of ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Plus Stapler (PSEE60A) and ECHELON Reload with GST vs ENDO GIA™ ULTRA Handle (EGIAUSTND) and Endo GIA™ Reload with Tri-Staple™ Technology (GST60B 6.496lbf & GST60T 7.789lbf vs EGIA60AMT 1.325lbf & EGIA60AXT 1.920lbf, all p<0.001).
  • \\ Benchtop testing on porcine stomach tissue. Surgeons (n=19) fired each instrument/reload once: PSE60A/ ECR60G, 030449/ 030459, and EGIAUSTND/ EGIA60AMT. Median reduction of distal tip motion was 88%, range of reduction was 71% to 95%.
