Surgical Stapler

Surgical staples are specialized staples used in surgery in place of sutures to close skin wounds or connect or remove parts of the bowels or lungs. The use of staples over sutures reduces the local inflammatory response, width of the wound, and time it takes to close.[1]

A more recent development, from the 1990s, uses clips instead of staples for some applications; this does not require the staple to penetrate.[2]

Description

How does a surgical stapler work?

Surgical staplers work by compressing tissue, connecting two pieces of tissue with staggered rows of B- shaped surgical staples and, in some models, cutting away excess tissue to create a clean closure of the surgical wound.
