Overview
Optimal compression, superior hemostasis Request Rep Follow-up

As a surgeon, you are most concerned with delivering optimal outcomes for your patients. To assist you in achieving this goal, Ethicon remains committed to developing advanced instrumentation across the spectrum of surgical methods, including open surgery. And so, in collaboration with surgeons worldwide, we have developed the ETHICON ENDO-SURGERY™ Linear Cutter – designed to deliver optimal compression and superior hemostasis.*

Compression

  • Proximal reload mechanism forces the distal tip downward, creating uniform pressure throughout the anvil that allows for consistent staple line upon closing
  • Selectable staple height gives surgeons the ability to choose the appropriate closed staple height for the tissue conditions encountered
  • Using the staple height selecter, which moves the anvil up or down, the surgeon can change the gap between the cartridge and anvil surfaces
  • Gives surgeons the efficiency of 3 closed staple heights in one cartridge

Superior hemostasis

  • ETHICON ENDO-SURGERY™ Linear Cutter is the only open linear cutter with innovative 6-row, 3-D staple technology*
  • 3-D surgical staple designed with angled, parallel legs to increase the area of tissue compression

  • * Preclinical animate study comparing the ETHICON ENDO-SURGERY™ Linear Cutters 75 (NTLC75), the PROXIMATE® Linear Cutters, and the DST Series™ GIA™ 80. Data on file.

Compression

  • Selectable staple height gives surgeons the ability to choose the appropriate staple height
  • Upon closing, proximal reload mechanism forces the distal tip downward, creating uniform pressure throughout the anvil that allows for a consistent staple line
  • Using the staple height selecter, which moves the anvil up or down, the surgeon can change the gap between the cartridge and anvil surfaces.

Hemostasis

  • 3-D surgical staple designed with angled, parallel legs to increase the area of tissue compression*
  • ETHICON ENDO-SURGERY™ Linear Cutter is the only open linear cutter with innovative 6-row, 3-D staple technology

Ease-of-use

  • Spring-loaded, intermediate locking mechanism allows for easier, one-handed tissue manipulation
  • Two-sided firing allows for firing at any angle, whether left or right-handed
  • A single cartridge for three closed staple heights allows for 50% reduction in Stock Keeping Units (SKU)

Safety

  • Tissue retaining button – assists with setting the closed staple height and also prevents tissue slippage out of the distal end of the instrument
  • Non-slip grip surfaces provide improved control of the device
  • Safety lockout feature prevents firing of unloaded device and preventing firing of a used cartridge/reload
