The PROXIMATE® ACCESS 55 stapler simplifies procedures because it's easy to use, position, and fire. It's articulating linear stapler design allows you to transection and resection tissues and provides better access to target tissue. The stapler's small head and long, flexible shaft provide surgeons with deeper access in the pelvis or thoracic cavity. The shaft has a 30º flex to help achieve this access, while the articulating head can rotate as much as 80º to ensure precision. Best of all, the user-friendly tool can be worked all with one hand (to open, close, and fire).
