C-REX®

With zero leakage in mind

We are aiming to improve

patient outcomes after colorectal cancer surgery

THE CHALLENGE

In current clinical practice

stapling and suturing

are most common techniques for colorectal anastomosis

Colorectal surgeries globally per year

8.6%*

Of surgeries will be complicated by anastomotic leakage

An estimate of $9bn will be spent annually worldwide to treat

complications of leakage **

The increasing number of adverse events after surgeries with stapling

is causing widespread concern ***

 
THE SOLUTION

Innovative
