*Smartscope measurement of estimated aerial surface area of distal end of clamp arm and blade outer tube housing (n=1).
§Compared to the Endo GIA™ Curved Tip Reload with Tri-Staple™ technology. PVE35A, EGIA30CTAVM, and PSE45A articulation data from IFUs of each device.
†Based on prospective comparative study between fusion technique with HARMONIC FOCUS (n=18) vs. CUSA-bipolar (n=18). Jagannath P et al. Fusion technique for liver transection with Kelly-clysis and Harmonic technology. World J Surg. 2010; 34:101-105.
‡Reduced force to fire leads to less movement of the tip on vital structures during transection, potentially resulting in less trauma compared to manual stapler firings.
‡Benchtop testing of distal tip movement with Powered Echelon Flex™ vs manually fired devices. Based on similarity of relevant design features between Powered Echelon Flex and subsequent powered ECHELON Devices, no significant difference in performance is expected.
