Innovative Capabilities

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

COLON ANASTOMOSIS

Products enabling compression and reliable staple formation

Achieving optimal compression needed for a secure anastomosis and effective perfusion to promote healing is our common goal. 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 accommodate varying tissue thicknesses.

DISTAL TRANSECTION

Products delivering access and more targeted tissue transection

Ethicon has products that provide access and exceptional staple line integrity* in more challenging procedures. The ECHELON FLEX™ GST 45 controls tissue movement, which enables transecting colorectal tissue in fewer firings due to less slippage on colon. 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.Ω §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.
