GORE® SEAMGUARD® Bioabsorbable Staple Line Reinforcement Material is indicated for use in surgical procedures involving soft tissue transection or resection with staple line reinforcement. This includes cases of lung resection and lung volume reduction.

GORE® SEAMGUARD® Bioabsorbable Staple Line Reinforcement is specifically engineered to reduce the incidence of perioperative leaks and bleeding in a variety of open and minimally invasive surgeries.

Clinical Benefits of Using GORE® SEAMGUARD® Bioabsorbable Staple Line Reinforcement

  • Strong, yet thin - Engineered for consistent thinness to allow proper staple formation and mechanically increase the strength of the resection line by evenly distributing the staple pressure exerted on the tissue over a wider surface area.
  • Proven polymers used in bioabsorbable sutures and implantable devices with a well-known history of safety
  • Synthetic material having no risk of animal contamination
  • More than 50 peer-reviewed papers documenting successful clinical use in multiple surgical
