The award-winning Circular Stapler (CST) has 200% more housing capacity compared to standard staplers. The CST’s increased housing capacity improves staple line formation by allowing the tissue to lie flat between the anvil and the cartridge which then does not subject it to unwanted compression during firing (also known as the piston effect).
Circular staplers were first created in 1978, but for more than 40 years there had been little innovation upon the original design.

OF THE CST
WHAT SETS US APART
LARGER HOUSING VOLUME
& COMPRESSION-FREE FIRING
The CST’s 200% larger housing combined with its compression-free firing mechanism is setting new standards in circular stapling technology and providing precision without the need for power.
Resulting in unwanted tissue compression and overflow, often causing crossed staple lines.
Overflow on staple line
Smaller housing may prevent tissue lying flat on the cartridge.
Unwanted compression of the staple line during firing may cause the tissue to bunch affecting the staple line’s integrity.
200% larger housing
Allows more tissue to be included in the excision doughnut, minimising the risk of cross staple lines.
Tissue lies flat
Larger housing allows tissue to lie flat on the CST cartridge.
Allowing tissue to stay in position on staple line during firing.
