CONTOUR can. Reload after reload.
Designed to be reloaded to complete a single transection
CONTOUR with its unique curved head and tissue retaining pin supports multiple firings which may be used to prevent overloading of the tissue in the jaws of the device. The knife extends to the retaining pin and the staple line extends beyond the pin, supporting multiple firings when needed.
Unique Curved Head
Designed to transect perpendicular to the rectum
The CONTOUR Curved Cutter Stapler allows for placement of a 40mm cutline in the width of a 30mm space and low pelvic access without handle obstruction.
More Precise Transection*
Parallel closure for controlled compression and less tissue movement.
Tissue retaining pin with manual closure option holds tissue in place during compression and firing.
Less Tissue Slippage*
CONTOUR with its simultaneous firing may eliminate 1 reload per procedure*
78% less tissue slippage during firing compared to Covidien Endo GIA Radial Reload with Tri-Staple™ Technology.*
* Benchtop testing on porcine rectum.
