What is X-Tack?

X-Tack Endoscopic HeliX Tacking System

X-Tack allows for suture-based, deep submucosal and intramuscular enhanced fixation through a standard gastroscope or colonoscope.

Placing independent barbed HeliX Tacks, tethered with a single polypropylene suture, makes spanning and closing large or irregular shaped defects easier. Applying suture tension approximates margins, allowing for visual confirmation of closure prior to locking the suture construct.

Designed specifically for applications in the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract, X-Tack delivers precision to your defect closures.

The easy and intuitive X-Tack Handle features a Persian Drill that translates linear motion into rotation using the Finger Slider.

Customized Suture Patterns

The first HeliX Tack is pre-loaded and three additional reloadable HeliX Tacks are readily available to quickly add up to four points of fixation.

The suture Cinch simultaneously facilitates final suture tension, locks construct, and cuts excess suture.

How It Works

X-Tack Endoscopic HeliX Tacking System Overview

Enhanced Fixation, Low Profile

HeliX Tacks are designed with barbs for enhanced fixation in deep submuscuoal and intramuscular gastrointestinal tissue. Optimized length and flat driving tip delivers a low-profile suture-based construct.

Easily Span Difficult Defects

HeliX Tacks tethered with a polypropylene suture allow for independent, through-the-scope placement of fixation points, eliminating the challenge of spanning defects.

Precise Closure

Applying suture tension approximates margins allowing for visual confirmation of defect closure prior to locking suture construct.

The Next Evolution in Defect Closure

The X-Tack™ Endoscopic HeliX Tacking System is compatbible with gastroscopes (up to 155 cm) and colonoscopes (up to 235 cm) with a 2.8mm or larger working channel.

The X-Tack™ System is intended for approximation of soft tissue in minimally invasive gastroenterology procedures (e.g. closure and healing of ESD/EMR sites, and closing of fistula, perforation or leaks). The X-Tack™ System is not intended for hemostasis of acute bleeding ulcers. For complete safety information, refer to the Instructions for Use (GRF-00539-00).

pre=loaded helix

First, pre-loaded HeliX Tack is placed into healthy tissue adjacent to the defect.

Tack detached

HeliX Tack is detached from the Driver.

tacks added and inserted in channel

Additional HeliX Tacks are re-loaded and inserted into the scope working channel.

suture tension helps margins

Four HeliX Tacks are placed independently around the defect. Intra-procedural suture tension helps approximate margins.
