Backed by a Body of Evidence
ECHELON products are designed for exceptional tissue management and control. It's the only portfolio that goes "beyond the benchtop," using real-world evidence in colorectal, bariatric and thoracic surgery to support innovative performance and design for a better way to staple.
Body of Evidence: Colorectal
The ECHELON CIRCULAR™ Powered Stapler demonstrated anastomotic leak rates of 1.8% and 1.7% in two clinical studies.2,3 It has an innovative combination of Gripping Surface Technology and 3D Stapling Technology and it reduced leaks at the staple line without compromising perfusion.1
The ECHELON CIRCULAR™ Powered Stapler demonstrated the following clinical results in colorectal surgery.
anastomotic leak rate in a multi-site, multicountry clinical study (3/168)2
anastomotic leak rate in a single institution clinical study (1/60)3
reduction in anastomotic leak rate compared to manual circular staplers (1.7% v. 11.8%, p=0.02)3
ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Staplers with GST Reloads are the only surgical staplers backed by large-scale, real-world, peer-reviewed evidence associated with improved clinical and economic outcomes in bariatric surgery.
Up to 73%
reduction in hemostasis-related complications vs Medtronic Signia™ with Tri-StapleTM Reload (0.67% vs 2.51%, p=0.003)6
lower median total hospital cost vs Medtronic Signia™ with Tri-StapleTM Reload ($9,771 vs $10,487, p<0.001)6
Body of Evidence: Thoracic
The ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Vascular Stapler plus ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Stapler with GST has been shown through retrospective studies to be associated with the reduction of complications without an increase in price.7 GST offers two-stage compression and stability while PVS offers improved access and precision via a narrow anvil, increased articulation, and smaller shaft diameter for vascular firings.
The ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Vascular Stapler plus the ECHELON FLEX™ Powered Stapler with GST are supported through real-world evidence and were associated with improved hemostasis outcomes without increasing cost in thoracic surgery.
reduction in bleeding-related complications (4.8% vs 14.2%, p=0.01)8
reduction in length of stay (4.99 vs 5.82, p=0.047)9
increase in hospital costs compared to using a single Medtronic stapler10
