Staplers, Surgical, Circular, Hemorrhoid
Definition : Surgical staplers designed to excise enlarged prolapsed anal mucose (hemorrhoids). These devices typically consist of circular staplers of at least 1.25-inch (33 mm) diameter. The device is introduced through the anus into the rectum, then the prolapsed tissue is pulled into the stapler and removed, while the remaining hemorrhoidal tissue is stapled and restored to its original normal position. Hemorrhoid circular staplers are frequently used together with anal dilators and suture anoscopes.
