Innovative Capabilities

Ethicon offers a comprehensive portfolio and innovative solutions to meet the demanding needs of every critical step of Colorectal surgery

Achieving Optimal Anastamosis

Solutions enabling compression and reliable staple formation

Achieving appropriate compression and reliable staple formation for an optimal anastomosis are our common goals. We work with surgeons to control variability and reduce complications through specific device-tissue interactions. Only Ethicon Circular Staplers allow you to adjust staple height to accomodate varying tissue thicknesses.

Distal Transection

Solutions delivering access and more targeted tissue transection

Ethicon has solutions that provide access and exceptional staple line integrity* in more challenging procedures. The ECHELON FLEX™ GST System enables the least tissue slippage during firing* to precisely transect the colon and rectum. The CONTOUR® Curved Cutter Stapler is designed specifically for distal transection, the unique, curved head makes it the most chosen open stapling device in the industry.

Mobilization and Vessel Sealing

Solutions for precise dissection and advanced sealing.

Achieving secure vessel sealing without damaging surrounding tissue are critical for mobilization. ENSEAL® X1 Large Jaw has significantly less lateral thermal spread than LigaSure™ Atlas. ENSEAL® G2 Articulating Tissue Sealers, with 110° articulation, improves access and visibility. HARMONIC ACE®+7 Shears is the first purely ultrasonic energy deviceβ to provide reliable hemostasis¥ when ligating large vessels including IMA and abdominal vessels up to 7mm in diameter. €,‡,†

Secure Wound Closure

Solutions addressing risk factors associated with SSIs

Colorectal surgery faces a 9.8%508 rate of surgical site infection(SSI), the most common reason for unplanned readmission.509 Ethicon offers a portfolio of wound closure products to help prevent complications, including STRATAFIX™ Knotless Tissue Control Devices, antibacterial sutures, and DERMABOND® PRINEO® Skin Closure System, giving uncompromised strength and protection across different layers.
