    Background: Staple line integrity is of upmost importance to surgeons in gastric surgery. Staple line reinforcement is utilized to improve strength and stability of the staple line. The Echelon Endopath™ SLR (Staple Line Reinforcement, ESLR) was developed for staple line reinforcement. Our goal is to present results from a real-world study using the ESLR in gastric procedures. Methods: A prospective, single-arm, multi-center, post-market study was performed to determine the incidence of device-related adverse events (AEs) through 70 days post-procedure in gastric procedures. AEs were defined as staple line bleeding, intra- or post-operative leak and radiographically documented stricture. Secondary outcomes were number of devices replaced intraoperatively due to bunching or slippage. Eligibility included subjects who u.. Read More»
