The Echelon 60 ENDOPATH® Stapler delivers hemostasis and a true 60mm staple line. It can be used in laparoscopic weight loss surgery procedures and for laparoscopic colorectal and thoracic procedures. The Echelon 60 ENDOPATH has a revolutionary design with Enhanced Compression that features the combination of a rigid anvil and a new 3-Point Gap Control for consistent staple formation and hemostasis. It provides three points of contact to ensure the anvil, cartridge and channel are all aligned and calibrated. The device also features a new automatic knife return to enable one-handed close, fire and release by the surgeon. The Echelon 60 ENDOPATH Stapler works with a wide range of cartridges including white, blue and green and a new gold cartridge that is used primarily on thicker tissue, compressible to 1.8mm. These cartridges all fit down a 12mm port for small incisions and provide 6-row capability. Surgeons select cartridge size based on tissue thickness.
