Ethicon Launches New Powered-Circular Stapler
Johnson & Johnson’s Ethicon business has launched what is being called the industry’s first powered circular stapler. Somerville, NJ-based Ethicon’s Echelon Circular Powered stapler was developed to help address anastomotic leaking, a serious complication associated with colorectal, gastric, and thoracic surgery The company said Echelon reduces leaks by 61% when compared to Dublin-based Medtronic’s DST Series EEA Stapler. Echelon Circular’s one-finger push-button firing reduces force to fire by 97% and delivers 37% less movement a...

3D bioprinting of collagen to rebuild components of the human heart
We present a method to 3D-bioprint collagen using freeform reversible embedding of suspended hydrogels (FRESH) to engineer components of the human heart at various scales, from capillaries to the full organ. Control of pH-driven gelation provides 20-micrometer filament resolution, a porous microstructure that enables rapid cellular infiltration and microvascularization, and mechanical strength for fabrication and perfusion of multiscale vasculature and tri-leaflet valves. We found that FRESH 3D-bioprinted hearts accurately reproduce patient-specific anatomical structure as determined by micro–computed tomography. Car...
