A Better Way to Staple

Surgical Staplers

Surgical stapling complications can have a major impact on clinical outcomes and an increased financial burden for healthcare systems. Our tissue-specific open and laparoscopic stapler designs are based on science and backed by a growing body of real-world evidence and have been associated with improved outcomes and reduced financial burden.1

Performance-Driven Results, Backed by Evidence

Since 2017, the use of ECHELON™ Powered Staplers has demonstrated an association with improved clinical and economic outcomes—across tissue types, patient populations and countries—in bariatric, thoracic and colorectal procedures.1

Clinical Evidence

Clinical Evidence

Today’s patient enters the operating room with comorbidities that increase factors of surgical risk—like heart disease, obesity, diabetes and more. Providing a stapling technology that accounts for both challenging anatomy and complex procedures is critical in managing complications. Our line of surgical staplers can help decrease the burden of clinical complications.

Economic Evidence

Economic Evidence

Ethicon stapling solutions reduce complications1 - supporting higher efficiency in the operating room and reducing hospital costs. ECHELON Powered Staplers have been associated with lower hospital costs in bariatric and colorectal surgery.2,3

The Impact of Surgical Stapling Complications

Bariatric Bleeding

Bariatric Bleeding

Postoperative bleeding can cause surgical complications that lead to substantial morbidity and incremental hospital costs of $6,715–$7,500.4,5

Thoracic Air Leaks

Thoracic Air Leaks

Postoperative air leaks occur in up to 24% of lobectomies and may lead to a higher risk of in-hospital mortality and incremental hospital costs of $6,500.6

Colorectal Leaks

Colorectal Leaks

Postoperative anastomotic leaks occur in up to 12% of colorectal resections with mortality reported between 12% and 27%,7 and costs of around $17.8k per leak.8
