PERI-STRIPS DRY Staple Line Reinforcement with VERITAS Collagen Matrix is designed to help surgeons improve outcomes and enable patient healing in bariatric, gastric, lung and small bowel procedures. By delivering a naturally strong and biocompatible material, PERI-STRIPS DRY with VERITAS has been shown to reduce the risk of leaks and bleeds along the staple line.

Confidence at the Staple Line

Over 20 years and 2.2 million implants later, PERI-STRIPS DRY with VERITAS is proven to improve clinical outcomes and reduce procedural complications.1,2,3

Strong From the Start (Burst Strength)*

An experimental study evaluating staple line seam integrity at intraluminal pressures in the immediate postoperative period with a canine model demonstrated:

Regardless of the operative techniques, the buttressed ileocolic anastomoses showed higher bursting pressures.*,8 

Buttressed anastomoses never ruptured at the staple line.*,8

*Pre-clinical data results may not correlate to results in humans.

Additional Product Benefits

Outperforms Synthetic PGA Material

PERI-STRIPS DRY with VERITAS is derived from bovine pericardium and outperforms synthetic PGA material at the staple line over time in sleeve gastrectomy/gastric bypass patients.2

Reduced Risk of Staple Line Leaks and Bleeds

In a multicenter comparative use study, PERI-STRIPS DRY with VERITAS significantly lowered the risk of postoperative bleeding and leaks at the staple line compared to competitive products, over-sewing, and no staple line reinforcement.3

Fully Remodelable with Tissue Integration

Remodeling of PERI-STRIPS DRY with VERITAS entails two simultaneous processes that occur during normal wound healing: degradation of the VERITAS scaffold and deposition of new tissue and blood vessels, as demonstrated in pre-clinical studies*.4,5,6


*Pre-clinical data results may not correlate to results in humans.
