38 Bariatric Times Buyers Guide 2017 Bariatric Times • August 2017 Suturing Devices and Systems APOLLO ENDOSURGERY, INC. OverStitch ™ Endoscopic Suturing System The OverStitch ™ Endoscopic Suturing System enables advanced endoscopic surgery by allowing physicians to place full-thickness sutures using a flexible endoscope. With the ability to provide secure tissue approximation, the OverStitch System has multiple applications, including revisional bariatric procedures and repair of GI defects. ETHICON INC. DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive can add strength and protection to an incision. • Strength: When used in addition to sutures, DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive was shown ex vivo to add 75% more strength to wound closure than sutures alone • Microbial barrier: DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive provides a microbial barrier with 99% protection in vitro for at least 72 hours against organisms commonly responsible for s urgical site infections (SSIs) • Inhibition of bacteria: DERMABOND ADVANCED Adhesive demonstrated in vitro inhibition of gram-positive bacteria (MRSA & M RSE) and gram-negative bacteria (E. coli) P ROXISURE ™ S uturing Device P recise suturing in tight spaces. Reach the Angle: Enables precise suture placement with minimal tissue manipulation. Control the Bite: Improves a surgeon's ability to suture a variety of tissue types, including flat s urfaces. Secure the Knot: Enables surgeons t o tie secure intracorporeal knots. STRATAFIX ™ Sprial Knotless Tissue Control Devices Placing a running suture over the stapling line may reduce risk of leakage in laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. STRATAFIX Knotless Tissue Control Devices facilitate a stronger watertight seal than interrupted or running standard suture. The unique, knotless design and multiple points of fixation facilitate closure in laparoscopic surgeries. ETHICON INC. ENDOPATH ® XCEL ® Bladeless Trocars with OPTIVIEW ® Technology Great stability and superior visibility. And with OPTIVIEW ® Technology, endoscope recleanings are cut in half. OPTIVIEW Technology is currently available in 5mm and 1 2mm trocars. ENDOPATH ® X CEL ® Bladeless Trocars are available in a wide range of lengths, with diameters ranging from 5–15mm. T rocars Staplers ETHICON INC. P owered ECHELON FLEX ™ G ST System T rust the most chosen Endocutter in b ariatric surgery. Movement matters—a better grip on movement. The Powered ECHELON FLEX ™ GST System is uniquely designed with better grip to provide the least tissue slippage of any endocutter for outstanding stapling performance. Ethicon Intraluminal Circular Staplers (ILS) Ethicon Intraluminal Circular Staplers (ILS) provide confidence through compression. E thicon Circular Staplers allow a surgeon to c ontrol the amount of compression force applied to tissue depending on the clinical situation. Our adjustable staple height technology accommodates compressed tissue thickness from 1.0mm to 2.5mm—no other circular stapler is indicated for a wider range. S URGICAL INSTRUMENTATION CONTINUED Vessel/Tissue Sealers/Dividers ETHICON INC. HARMONIC ACE ® +7 Shears with Advanced Hemostasis H ARMONIC ACE ® + 7 Shears with Adaptive T issue Technology enables greater surgical precision and performance by dynamically optimizing energy delivery in response to changing tissue conditions. • Adaptive Tissue Technology actively manages and helps improve the thermal profile of the device. • Advanced Hemostasis Mode modulates energy to provide for strong and secure sealing in all vessel sizes up to and including 7mm in diameter, including the short gastric vessels. • Curved blade design enables blade visibility and fine dissection for confidence in mobilizing structures near the crus. • Multi-functionality assists in minimizing instrument exchanges and may reduce the number of surgical devices needed in a procedure. ENSEAL ® G2 Articulating Tissue Sealer The first and only articulating tissue sealer compatible with a 5mm port. Facilitates a perpendicular approach to vessels and provides the ability to maneuver around corners and behind structures. May reduce the number of ports and instrument exchanges needed to access targeted areas.
