  1. In one sentence, Describe the Function of the Roticulator ™ TA™ Single Use Instrument:
  2. The Roticulator TA 30/55 instrument fires a double staggered row of titanium staples. The instrument edge can also be used as a guide for transection.
  3. What is the benefit of the Roticulator TA's ability to Rotate 320 degrees and Articulate 120 degrees? (Feature)
    Allows for greater access and visualization of the tissue to be stapled, especially in challenging areas like the pelvis. (Benefit)
  4. What is the benefit of the Roticulator TA's Long, 13 inch shaft?
    It is ideal for reaching deep into areas of difficult access. Allows the surgeon to use the instrument in many different and challenging applications
  5. What is the benefit of the Roticulator TA's Locking Collar?
    Locks the instrument head into place either straight or articulated/rotated. Increases surgeon confidence that the head will not move and that the staple lines can be formed consistently, even when the instrument head is articulated and rotated.
  6. What is the benefit of the Roticulator TA's Automatic Pin Placement?
    Increases the security of the tissue within the jaws and allows for a properly formed and consistent staple line.
  7. Describe the Function of the DST series™ TA™ Instrument
    The DST series™ TA™ stapler fires a linear double staggered row of titanium staples with secure closure allowing excellent hemostasis. The instrument edge can also be used as a cutting guide. The 30 V3 load may also be used for application on vessels as it provides a Triple staggered row for greater security in stapling vascular structures.
  8. What is the Benefit of the DST series TA's availability in a 45mm Linear Staple Length?
    *All cases/applications get best stple formation possible*

    Studies amongst surgeons have shown this to be the preferred linear staple length for procedures in the pelvic cavity and the competition doesn’t offer a 45mm linear staple line. With our instrument, the surgeon gets the best staple formation possible on all applications.
  9. What is the Benefit of the DST series TA's Direct Stapling Technology (DST)?
    *More secure staple formation*

    We’ve improved our staples so that they are made of flattened staple wire for more surface area than round staples and we have wider anvil buckets for a larger point of staple impact, allowing for consistent closure, consistent formation of B-shaped staples and a more secure staple line.
  10. What is the Benefit of the DST series TA's Remote or Manual Pin Placement?
    *One Handed Operation*

    Surgeon Preference of either being able to place the pin automatically or manually. Also allows for one handed use of the instrument.
  11. What is the Benefit of the DST series TA's Locking Handle?
    Since the instrument handle will lock after firing the stapler, the surgeon can confidently know that the staples have been fired and can make a transection on the specimen side and release the jaws with the black quick release button on the back of the instrument.
  12. What is the Benefit of the DST series TA's Interchangeable 3.5mm and 4.8mm cartridges?
    The surgeon doesn’t have to open a separate instrument when switching between staple heights. This allows for greater versatility and cost reduction.
  13. How would you position the Roticulator TA's ability to Rotate 320° and articulate 120° for success over the Ethicon Access 55?

  26. Describe the Function of the DST series™ EEA™ Instrument:
    The DST series™ EEA™ instrument fires a circular double staggered row of titanium staples and resects the tissue within the staple line; allowing for the formation of a true end to end anastomosis.
  27. What is the benefit of the DST series EEA's Tilt-top Anvil?
    *Provides for easier removal of anvil from anastomosis*

    As the instrument is opened, the anvil will tilt on its side aiding in removal of the instrument from the lumen by minimizing the surface area of the anvil that comes in contact with the staple line. Buttoning and Un-buttoning a shirt is a good analogy to this technology.
  28. What is the benefit of the DST series EEA's DST Staples and Anvil?
    *Better B-shaped staple formation*

    We’ve improved our staples so that they are made of flattened staple wire for more surface area than round staples and we have wider anvil buckets for a larger point of staple impact, allowing for consistent closure, consistent formation of B-shaped staples and a more secure staple line.
  29. What is the benefit of the DST series EEA's Five Instrument Diameters and Two Instrument Lengths?
    Allows for flexibility and use on varying lumen sizes. 22cm Standard and 35cm XL shaft lengths are offered, both in all five diameters with 3.5mm staples available on the 21mm, 25mm & 28mm. All applications get the best staple formation possible.
  30. What is the benefit of the DST series EEA's creation of the Largest lumens available with consistent pedicle formation?
    *Added anastomosis and staple line security*

    Added security in each anastomosis and greater staple line security. More space exists between the staple line and the point of transection, allowing for the instrument to grasp more tissue and form a safer and stronger anastomosis.
  31. What is the benefit of the DST series EEA's Greater number of staples?
    Surgeon can trust that the anastomosis has the added security of extra DST™ staples
  32. Describe the Function of the Eithicon Contour Single Use Instrument:
    The Contour instrument fires two curved double staggered rows of titanium staples and divides between the staple lines with a knife.
  33. What is the Benefit of Ethicon's Contour's Simultaneous Cutting and Stapling?
    Four curvilinear rows of staples with a single cut between – eliminating the need for a bowel clamp and scalpel.

    In challenging applications, DST™ provides more consistent “B” shaped staple formation in every application
  38. How would you position the DST Series™ TA™ 45mm linear length vs. 30mm linear length for success over the Ethicon Contour?
    Studies amongst surgeons have shown this to be the preferred linear staple length for procedures in the pelvic cavity and the competition doesn’t offer a 45 mm linear staple line. With our instrument, the surgeon gets the best staple formation of B-shaped staples and a more secure staple line and with the contour, only a true 30mm staple line is offered.
  39. How would you position the DST series TA - 45mm or Roticulator TA's size for success over the bulky Ethicon Contour?
    The DST™ TA and Roticulator™ instruments should be highlighted for their less cumbersome design and significant low access advantage
