Preparation and application

PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix is composed of two primary components: the PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix plastic loading unit and the PSD Gel. The plastic loading unit contains two strips of dehydrated bovine pericardium secured on each side of a foam spacer by the plastic loading unit. PSD Gel is a hydrogel which creates a temporary bond between the strips and the forks of the stapler and promotes rehydration of the strips.

Apply a continuous bead of PSD Gel to the center of both sides of the loading unit.

The plastic loading unit contains two strips of bovine pericardium secured on each side of a foam spacer. Gently push the PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix loading unit into the jaws of the stapler and slide the foam insert out of loading unit.

With the Covidien stapler, be careful to ensure that the end of the yellow guard is positioned above the assembly clip.

Note: PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix can be used immediately or allowed to remain between the forks of the stapler loading unit until surgery. For optimal results, PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix should be used within 60 minutes of its application to the stapler

Ethicon Stapler

Covidien Stapler

Remove the plastic sheath by sliding it straight off in a continuous motion. Wipe off any excess gel from both sides of the foam insert. Leave the stapler locked on the foam insert until ready to use.

PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix can be used immediately or allowed to remain between the jaws of the stapler loading unit until surgery. For optimal results, PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix should be used within 60 minutes of its application to the stapler.

PERI-STRIPS DRY with VERITAS Collagen Matrix Staple Line Reinforcement (PSDV)

Indications for Use
PSDV Reinforcement is intended for use as a prosthesis for the surgical repair of soft tissue deficiencies using surgical staplers when staple line reinforcement is needed.

(Circular reinforcement only) PSDV Reinforcement can be used for reinforcement of staple lines during gastric, bariatric, and small bowel procedures.

(Linear reinforcement only) PSDV Reinforcement can be used for reinforcement of staple lines during lung and bronchus resections and during bariatric surgical procedures, and during gastric, small bowel, mesentery, colon, and colorectal procedures.

Selected Important Risk Information
Ensure the staple line is completely covered with the buttress or inadequate coverage after firing may result.

Do not get the buttress wet before applying Gel, or the buttress may not adhere to the stapler properly.

Ensure the anvil and cartridge sides of the loading unit are on the corresponding stapler jaws or the buttress may not adhere to the stapler properly.
