Laparoscopic options can be now be used for resection of cancer in the right, left and sigmoid colon, and have proven to deliver similar probability of cancer-related survival compared with open procedures.29,27 Through collaboration with surgeons, we have developed devices specifically designed for colorectal procedures. We value these partnerships and continue to seek new and more innovative solutions.
Our comprehensive portfolio includes devices engineered for optimal precision, control, efficiency and versatility at every stage of the colorectal procedure.
For ACCESS to the colon:
ENDOPATH® XCEL™ Bladeless Trocar provides smooth and unencumbered laparoscopic access. Integrated thread design to help minimize trocar slip-outs.
The ENDOPATH DEXTRUS® Access System is a complete hand-assisted laparoscopic system uniquely designed to optimize minimally invasive colorectal surgery. Comprised of durable elastomeric material, it can be used as a port for open instruments, such as CONTOUR® Curved Cutter Stapler.
For MOBILIZATION of the colon, our advanced energy devices and clip-appliers are designed to offer precision, security and speed and to enable clear visualization of critical structures.
The HARMONIC ACE® Curved Shears use ultrasonic technology to both cut and coagulate tissue with minimal lateral thermal spread and for precise dissection of the mesentery, bowel and lateral attachments in both laparoscopic and open procedures.
ENSEAL® Temperature-Controlled Tissue Sealing Devices simultaneously seal and transect large vessels up to and including 7mm with minimal lateral thermal spread. And with its I-BLADE™ Design, it delivers high uniform compression across the entire seal area.
The LIGAMAX™ 5 Endoscopic Clip Applier, with its 33 cm shaft length, provides the exceptional access clip security and reliability colorectal surgeons need for ligation of vessels.
The LIGACLIP® Multiple Clip Applier (MCA) provides outstanding speed and accuracy in open colorectal surgery, with a wide jaw aperture for enhanced visibility of the vessel to be ligated.
For TRANSECTION/RESECTION of the colon, our line of staplers and cutters combine strength, for rigorous colorectal procedures, with innovative designs for greater precision. The result is predictable cuts and staple formation for a wide range of tissue thicknesses.
ECHELON ENDOPATH™ Staplers provide strength and precision to confidently handle rigorous colorectal procedures. Enhanced system-wide compression: combines a precision-machined anvil with 3-point gap control to provide uniform, consistent staple formation for hemostasis in a wide range of tissue thickness. The ECHELON FLEX™ ENDOPATH® Stapler is the first articulating mechanical stapler/cutter that can be operated with only one hand.
CONTOUR® Curved Cutter-Stapler enables you to cut and staple simultaneously, increasing efficiency in the OR. In either HALS or open cases, its curved head conforms to natural pelvic anatomy for deeper pelvic access, and it offers a range of staple lengths for different tissue thicknesses.
PROXIMATE® Titanium Linear Cutter (TLC) staples and cuts, for an efficient way to develop side-to-side anastomosis during left, right or transverse colon resection.
For ANASTOMOSIS of the colon, our staplers offer the security you need, providing greater control and delivering system-wide compression.
Ethicon Endo-Surgery, Inc. Circular Staplers, including the ECS, CDH and SDH, provide controlled tissue compression and adjustable staple height to accommodate varying tissue thicknesses when reapproximating the colon.
The ECHELON ENDOPATH Stapler features a wide jaw aperture for easy tissue positioning and manipulation, and delivers the mechanical strength to handle rigorous colorectal procedures.
For CLOSURE, our skin staplers provide you with the control and staple strength you need, with improved visibility and efficiency.
PROXIMATE Skin Staplers, including the MD, RH and PX, deliver accurate stapling with better cosmetic results for excellent all-around value.
For CLOSURE, our wound closure devices provide you with the strength and protection you need.
DERMABOND ADVANCED™ Topical Skin Adhesive – a unique formulation that provides patients with a triad of benefits when used in addition to sutures
Plus Antibacterial Sutures – the only commercially available sutures with antibacterial protection
