‡ Preclinical testing on porcine carotids that measured mean max lateral thermal damage via histology (mean=1.57mm).
§ Benchtop testing on porcine rectum. Normalized mean tissue movement along the cut line from before clamping on tissue to after firing the CONTOUR® Curved Cutter Stapler vs ENDO GIA™ ULTRA Handle (EGIAUSTND) and Endo GIA™ Radial Reload with Tri-Staple™ Technology (EGIARADMT) on 2.1mm to 2.9mm thick tissue. 3.8mm (9.4%) vs 17.4mm (32.5%), p<0.001.*
¶ Benchtop testing in porcine tissue ≤30mmHg (26mmHg average pressure experienced during intra-operative leak test), comparing Ethicon CDH29P to Medtronic (Covidien) EEA2835 (p<0.001).
