Protection against leaks in colorectal surgery

A colorectal leak is the most serious complication of colorectal surgery. The leak may occur after the removal of an intestinal segment and the connection of two healthy parts.
Cologuard developed a device that provides protection against leaks in colorectal surgery, thus dramatically reducing patient suffering and even death, as well as cutting medical expenses.
The design and development challenge was to create an intuitive operating handle for the doctor, thus minimizing confusion or hesitation while operating, by providing clear indications and simple and reliable design.
