45mm Green Reload with Gripping Surface Technology
This is what Ethicon has to say about GST Staples:
The ECHELON FLEX™ GST System* controls tissue movement to enable you to transect as you intend even on the most challenging tissue.
Control tissue slippage during firing
4x less tissue slippage for the most precise transection
Uniquely designed for better grip to provide the least tissue slippage for the most precise transection. Proprietary Gripping Surface Technology provides superior tissue grip without additional trauma during firing. This means you can transect more of the tissue you intended – especially in very thick tissue – with each firing.
Exceptional staple line integrity
Reliability across the broadest range of tissue thicknesses.
Surgeon-controlled stapling delivers closed staple height formation reliability through a proprietary combination of multi-stage compression, powered firing and Gripping Surface Technology, including stronger internal reload components and redesigned staple geometry to mitigate the amount and effect of tissue slippage during firing.
The ECHELON FLEX™ GST System delivers superior staple line integrity for robotic procedures compared to EndoWrist® Stapler. In thick tissue, EndoWrist® Stapler 45 required multiple clamp attempts,produced 3x more malformed staples and had a significantly higher occurrence of compromised staple line integrity.
