Official Title: Evaluating the Radial Reload Stapler With Tri-Staple TM Technology During Open Low Anterior Resection for Rectal Cancer: A Prospective Multicenter Case Series

Further study details as provided by Medtronic - MITG:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Staple Line [ Time Frame: Operative ]
    The surgeons ability to achieve a staple line at the desired level of the rectum.

  • Distal Margins [ Time Frame: Operative ]
    The ability to achieve adequate distal margins (defined as >2cm [or >1cm with clear histologic evaluation]) in the low rectum.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Usability: Visibility [ Time Frame: Operatively ]
    Visibility measured by surgeon usability questionnaire.

  • Usability: Access [ Time Frame: Operatively ]
    Access measured by surgeon usability questionnaire

  • Usability: Manueverability [ Time Frame: Operatively ]
    Manueverability measured by surgeon usability questionnaire. Question: Maneuverability of Radial reload during the procedure was adequate
