Staplers, Surgical, Circular
Definition : Surgical staplers designed for intraluminal delivery of double staggered rows of staples following a circular pattern. These staplers include a detachable head assembly, a firing handle, a locking spring, a staple housing, and trocars; they are appropriate for use in gastrointestinal tissues (typically from 1 to 2.5 mm thickness). Usually a circular knife cuts a stoma simultaneously to staple driving through the tissues. Circular staplers are available in several sizes to adapt their use to different diameters of the lumen. They are mostly used in anastomosis throughout the gastrointestinal tract.
