Availability of the Stapler 30 for the da Vinci Xi Surgical System expands the company’s Endowrist Stapler portfolio through the offering of new curved and straight tip instruments and four reloads. With general surgery, thoracic, gynecologic and urologic surgery indications, the Stapler 30 curved-tip instrument provides enhanced placement and visualization around tenuous vasculature. The Stapler 30 instruments and reloads—ranging from grey (0.75 mm closed) to green (2.0 mm closed)—provide a robust offering of 30 mm stapling options for the da Vinci Xi surgical system.
“Combined with the da Vinci Xi surgical system’s 3DHD vision, access, and surgeon control and autonomy, the Endowrist Stapler 30 naturally expands the da Vinci stapling portfolio,” said Sal Brogna, executive vice president of product operations at Intuitive Surgical. “This clearance further underscores the progress we’ve made in developing a broad suite of tools and resources for surgeons spanning several specialties, including thoracic and general surgery.”
The da Vinci Xi Surgical System design enables control of stapling from the surgeon console, creating a more direct relationship between clinical decision-making and instrument action.
The Stapler 30 product is immediately available for order, with rollout occurring in Q1 of 2016.
