J&J’s Ethicon launches new surgical stapler

Ethicon announced that it began the U.S. launch of its first-of-its-kind Echelon Linear surgical stapler.

The Johnson & Johnson MedTech unit says it’s the first linear cutter brought to market with combined 3D stapling technology and gripping surface technology (GST). These advanced capabilities can enable greater staple line security, helping surgeons reduce risks and support patient outcomes.

According to a news release, the first-of-its-kind stapler delivered 47% fewer leaks at the staple line. Its unique design offers the option to keep device halves locked or to separate them. This offers more control of device placement when navigating the differing needs of each patient’s anatomy.
