The use of circular staplers for re-anastomosis of colon and rectum poses the risk of sphincter lesions, rupture of the inner sphincter and lesions or tears in the mucosal folds. 

Up to 36% of all patients suffer temporary anal incontinence ("soiling"), while 18% of patients suffer from sphincter injuries.

m-protect®3 offers a rounded head for the dilation of the sphincter and protection of the stapler chamber from feces.

It is available in three sizes and fits all circular staplers.
