Device: Covidien Radial Reload Stapler with Tri-Staple Technology
Phase 4

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Evaluating the Radial Reload Stapler With Tri-Staple TM Technology During Laparoscopic Low Anterior Resection for Rectal Cancer: A Prospective Multicenter Case Series

Further study details as provided by Covidien:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Staple line [ Time Frame: Operative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The surgeon's ability to achieve a staple line at the desired level of the rectum.

  • Distal Margins [ Time Frame: Operative ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The ability to achieve adequate distal margins (defined as >2cm [or >1cm with clear histologic evaluation]) in the low rectum.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Usability [ Time Frame: Operatively ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    1. Access measured by surgeon usability questionnaire.
    2. Visibility measured by surgeon usability questionnaire.
    3. Maneuverability measured by surgeon usability questionnaire.
