* Benchtop testing on 1-7mm porcine splenic, thyrocervical and carotid arteries (mean burst pressure of 1400 mmHg). (C2241)
Full Claim: ENSEAL® X1 Large Jaw seals vessels securely
† For complete instructions for use, refer to the ENSEAL® X1 Large Jaw IFU
‡ Preclinical testing on porcine carotids that measured mean max lateral thermal damage via histology (mean=1.57mm). (C2162)
ENSEAL® X1 Large Jaw had minimal lateral thermal spread
§ 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 (CS40G) 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.* (C2112)
CONTOUR provides 78% less tissue slippage compared to Covidien EndoGIA Radial Reload with Tri-Staple Technology.
¶ Benchtop testing on porcine jejunum. Comparing mean tissue stretch during anvil opening after firing of the Ethicon Circular Stapler (CDH25A) and the DST Series EEA circular stapler (EEA2535). 1.558cm vs 2.228cm, p<0.05.(C2176)
The Ethicon circular stapler causes 1.4 times less strain on the anastomosis during anvil opening compared to the Covidien DST Series EEA .
