Your Choice of Stapler Matters

Surgical complications are costly, and most importantly, can be devastating for patients. In VATS lobectomy, air leaks and bleeding are among the most common complications, leading to increased morbidity, longer hospital stay and increased costs.

Ethicon is committed to evidence and advancing surgical care to improve patient care and outcomes. We recently completed peer-reviewed studies, which allow us to share compelling evidence that ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Staplers have been associated with improved clinical and economic outcomes compared to Medtronic non-powered staplers.¹
