Overview

Less Dissection

With the thinnest shaft, smallest anvil and jaws, and 80° of articulation, MicroCutter 5/80 reduces the amount of dissection required to place the micro stapler.

Easier Placement

Offering the widest articulation, smallest anvil and jaws and thinnest shaft of any articulating stapler, MicroCutter 5/80 enables easier placement in tightly confined spaces.

Better Visibility

Having the slimmest profile and smallest surface area of any articulating stapler, MicroCutter 5/80 offers improved visibility.

Specs

Widest Articulation

Up to 78% greater articulation, enables increased angle of reach and unprecedented access to the surgical site.

Smallest Anvil

Up to 44% smaller anvil enables easier placement and enhanced visualization.

Smallest Surface Area

Up to 51% smaller surface area provides improved visibility and does not adversely obscure the view of the target tissue.

Thinnest Shaft

At least 33% more reach provides widest freedom of movement and largest area of maneuverability.

Technology

Staple-On-A-Strip Technology

The MicroCutter 5/80 utilizes an innovative three dimensional (3D) staple design which allows for a large surface contact area between the staple and tissue.

The “D” shaped staples are stamped from high quality stainless steel and left connected to a metal strip which eliminates the need for plastic drivers. This allows for tighter spacing between individual staples while reducing the shaft diameter. When the device is fired, the wedge interacts directly with the each staple on the strip. The staples are guided into their final shape by mimicking the path of a suture needle through tissue. This reduces the forming forces and enables miniaturization of all components in the device. This proprietary staple design enables the creation of the smallest articulating stapler available on the market today.
