Narrower anvil,§ thinner shaftβ and more articulation¥
Watch a PVS Transection during Right Upper Lobectomy with ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Vascular Stapler. Watch Dr. Zane Hammoud at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, MI perform a PV transection during a right upper lobectomy procedure with ECHELON FLEX Powered Vascular Stapler.
26% narrower curved, blunt tip anvil vs. Endo GIA™ Tri-Staple™*
Reduce the amount of dissection required around the vessel to place the stapler. Plus, the blunt, curved tip improves visibility and confirms early, precise placement on thoracic vessels.
More flexibility during placement
11% greater articulation in each direction¥ vs Endo GIA™ Tri-Staple™
Only the Powered Vascular Stapler provides a span of 100° (50° in each direction), which may make it easier to navigate in the tight thoracic cavity.
Increased freedom of movement
The 9mm shaft, which is 26% thinnerβ, offers an unprecedented angle of reach
Thinnest shaft diameter offers a broader angle of reach for 43.8% greater freedom of movement in the tight intercostal space.β
