“This release marks another important milestone in our mission to develop solutions that can lead to more consistent and repeatable results in bariatric surgery,” he said Jonathan Thompson, MD, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Standard Bariatrics®. “Titan SGS ™ stapling technology is the natural evolution of the Standard Clamp ™ anatomy-based approach to sleeve gastrectomy that has been used successfully in more than 10,000 procedures.”
With a purposeful design tailored to meet the needs of today’s bariatric surgeon performing a sheath gastrectomy, Titan SGS ™ provides real-time audio and video feedback, graduated staple elevation, tissue sensing technology, and an ignition cycle optimized specifically for the patient’s gastric tissue Creation of a gastrectomy bag.1,3,4 While each patient’s anatomy is different, the Titan SGS ™ long staple line allows surgeons to plan and place staples in one shot, minimizing the variance often associated with the current use of multiple overlapping short cartridge fires.5
The design ensures more uniform stapling across the entire nine-inch cut line for improved staple strength and fewer defective staples than competitive staplers offering short cartridges for more general surgical use.2,3,4 The Titan SGS ™ design can result in a safer tack line and a lower chance of leaks, which is reflected in higher burst pressures.3rd Since Titan SGS ™ takes about half the time to create the stitching line,6.7 It can also potentially improve process time and operational efficiency.2.7
Titan SGS ™ was released after a successful multicenter study with 62 patients in longitudinal bracing of the stomach.2 The Department of Surgery at the University of Buffalo at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (UBMD) was the first to use Titan SGS ™. Steven SchwaitzbergMD, Professor and Chair of Surgery at Jacobs School and President of UBMD Surgery, said, “The gastric cuff is the most prevalent bariatric procedure around the world today and this important refinement will serve patients well for years to come.”
“We are focused on bringing innovation and breakthroughs in science and surgery to our users,” he said Matt Sokany, Chief Executive Officer of Standard Bariatrics®. “We believe Titan SGS ™ has the potential to address the challenges bariatric surgeons face using existing short cartridge stapling technology.”
