The device harvests a small strip of rectus fascia (1 x 5 cm) by simultaneously dilating the rectus fascial, stapling and then cutting the fascia. The device is small enough to fit through a 3-5 cm lower abdominal incision and articulates to an adjustable angle to account for possible patient obesity.
