Staplers, Surgical, Linear, Vascular
Definition : Linear staplers designed to deliver staples (e.g., made of titanium) in resection, transection, and anastomosis procedures performed on the vessels. These staplers are appropriate for use in tissues with the characteristic thickness of the vasculature, typically tissues that can be compressed to 1 mm or less in thickness. Vascular staplers are available in several sizes to adapt their use to different tissue thicknesses; the staplers can create stapling lines of different lengths (e.g., 30 mm, 60 mm). Some staplers are disposable but may be reloaded during a single procedure.
