Ethicon Linear Cutters
3-D staples for more uniform tissue compression than B-form staples.
The innovative 3-D surgical staple technology is designed for more uniform tissue compression to reduce the risk of leaks or bleeding through the staple line.
Reduced risk of leaks
Helps reduce risk of staple line leakage compared to DST SeriesTM GIATM.†
The Ethicon Linear Cutter has a 35% higher mean luminal leak pressure when compared to DST Series GIA.†
Delivers superior hemostasis compared to DST Series GIA.‡
The NTLC75 showed significantly improved hemostasis when compared to the DST Series GIA against a 5-point scale.‡
