Description
Objective : It has been accepted to use staplers for open and video-assisted thoracic surgery, however there was a risk in stapling of the pulmonary vasculatures. A newly developed stapler, powered ECHELON FLEX (Ethicon) is an electrically-powered stapler. It may reduce tip movement during cutting and stapling, which results in reduction of the risk of trauma to surrounding tissue. The aim of this study was to evaluate powered ECHELON FLEX for pulmonary lobectomy.
Methods : We reviewed 16 patients who underwent pulmonary lobectomy with powered ECHELON FLEX in our institution from December, 2013 to April, 2014.
Results : There were 25 stapling for the pulmonary artery, 17 stapling for the pulmonary vein, 16 stapling for the bronchus, and 33 stapling for the pulmonary parenchyma. Though two case of oozing from the stamps of a pulmonary artery and pulmonary parenchyma, there were no serious complications related to use of the staplers.
Conclusions : The powered ECHELON FLEX can be used for pulmonary lobectomy safely.
