ECHELON FLEX™ GST System

ECHELON FLEX™ GST System enables the least tissue slippage to precisely transect targeted tissue* – intended for parenchyma and bronchus firings.

Now experience the least tissue slippage during firing*

4X less tissue slippage

Lobectomy with the ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Vascular Stapler & ECHELON FLEX™ GST System. Watch a right upper lobectomy featuring the ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Vascular Stapler and the ECHELON FLEX™ GST System, performed by Dr. Robert J. Cerfolio, MD, MBA, FACS, FCCP.

Closed channel design

Reduces lateral deflection or movement

Only the ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Plus Stapler has a closed bottom channel to provide a rigid foundation that can withstand the high loads and stresses encountered in thick or dense tissue firings.

Reloads with Gripping Surface Technology

A better stapling solution for outsmarting movement

Offering a proprietary ridged surface to provide an atraumatic grip that holds tissue in place during firing. This superior hold may eliminate a reload per procedure* due to less tissue slippage during the transection.

Greater stability

Less movement during transection§

Allows 88% less movement at the end effector§ and potentially less trauma to adjacent tissues vs. EGIAUSTND/EGIA60AMT.

  • * Benchtop testing in porcine stomach tissue. Mean tissue movement from after clamping on tissue to after firing ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Plus Stapler (PSEE60A) and ECHELON Reload with GST vs ENDO GIA™ ULTRA Handle (EGIAUSTND) and Endo GIA™ Reload with Tri-Staple™ Technology at 1.5, 2.5, 3.3 and 4.0mm tissue thicknesses (1.5mm: GST60B 1.067mm vs EGIA60AMT 2.452mm p<0.001; 2.5mm: GST60G 1.148mm vs EGIA60AMT 3.261mm p<0.001; 3.3mm: GST60T 0.642mm vs EGIA60AMT 4.806mm p<0.001; 4.0mm: GST60T 0.654mm vs EGIA60AXT 5.116mm p<0.001).
  • Based on acute and long term evaluations in animate porcine stomach, bowel, lung and vasculature. Visual comparisons of 10-20 second clamp and release and full firing staple lines immediately following, 1hr after clamping, 14 days post op and at necropsy, as well as histological evaluation at 14 days post op, revealed no additional clinically relevant trauma to the tissues.

  • Benchtop testing in porcine stomach tissue. Mean peak load required to pull tissue from the clamped jaws of ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Plus Stapler (PSEE60A) and ECHELON Reload with GST vs ENDO GIA™ ULTRA Handle (EGIAUSTND) and Endo GIA™ Reload with Tri-Staple™ Technology (GST60B 6.496lbf & GST60T 7.789lbf vs EGIA60AMT 1.325lbf & EGIA60AXT 1.920lbf, all p<0.001).
  • § Benchtop testing on porcine stomach tissue. Surgeons (n=19) fired each instrument/ reload once: PSE60A/ ECR60G, 030449/ 030459, and EGIAUSTND/EGIA60AMT. Median reduction of distal tip motion was 88%, range of reduction was 71% to 95%.
