Achieving Optimal anastomosis

Achieving an optimal anastomosis is one of the most critical jobs in Colorectal surgeries. Tissue tension, poor blood supply, and fragile or inflamed tissues can compromise the anastomosis and lead to significant complications. Among complications, anastomotic leaks are a dominant surgical concern due to their high mortality rate.

Optimize perfusion.* Reduce leaks.*


Designed to reduce leaks without compromising perfusion—resulting in 61% fewer leaks at the staple line compared to the Medtronic DST Series™ EEA™ Stapler.*

Reduced staple line leakage

Superior staple formation compared with AutoSuture DST Series GIA

PROXIMATE® Linear Cutters featuring a unique Cam Mechanism and tissue retention pin produce the tightest closed staple height, providing fewer malformed staples than AutoSuture DST Series GIA.* It also may help reduce staple line leakage compared to the AutoSuture DST Series GIA.
