Endoscope Linear Stapler Program

The stapler is the first surgical device used to suture the gastrointestinal tract for almost a century, until the tube stapler became widely used in gastrointestinal surgery in 1978. The stapler is a device used in medicine as a substitute for traditional hand-sewn sutures. Due to the development of modern technology and improvements in manufacturing techniques, the clinical use of staplers is reliable, convenient, tight, and appropriate in tension, with the advantages of rapid stitching, easy operation, and minimal side effects and surgical complications. This has also allowed for the removal of previously inoperable tumors.

Introduction to the Endoscopic Linear Stapler

The Endoscopic Linear Stapler is an essential medical device used in laparoscopic surgeries that has a relatively high linear cutter price compared to other surgical tools. Despite its high cost, this surgical stapler provides surgeons with precision, speed, and efficiency during surgical procedures. The device is designed to cut and staple tissues, thereby reducing blood loss during surgery and creating a sterile environment that minimizes the risk of post-operative infections.  The Endoscopic Linear Stapler uses the linear principle of a stapler. When the handle is pulled, the lever increases the grip force to more than 5 times, and transfers it to the slide block. The slide block, along with the push rod, pushes the lead-out wire of the nail magazine, and the nail penetrates the tissue to be sutured. However, due to the resistance of the guide grooves on the plate, the nail foot bends inward to form a B-shape, securely sealing the two layers of tissue.

Steps to use the Endoscopic Linear Stapler

The Endoscopic Linear Stapler is a crucial medical stapler in laparoscopic surgeries that requires proper steps to use.

  • Remove the cover plate (needle plate) of the Endoscopic Linear Stapler.

  • Use tissue clamps to clamp both sides of the tissue incision, lift the anastomotic site, and place the tissue at the head of the stapler.

  • Hold the firing handle and when the firing begins, the locating rod in the component automatically enters the staple, limiting the matched tissue to the matched area.

  • When the firing handle is pushed halfway, the firing handle can be automatically saved. At this time, there will be a sound prompt to accurately adjust the anastomotic site according to the situation.

  • After adjusting the contact site, continue to tap the handle until the tissue is completely locked. There will be a sound prompt at this time, and the firing handle will automatically pop open. If it does not, manually open it to ensure firing and that the handle is fully open.

  • When pressing the firing handle again to match the tissue, there will be a sound prompt when the firing is in place. The U-shaped nail penetrates both sides of the tissue to complete the B-type suture. At this time, the firing handle is in a fully locked state and cannot be tapped twice to protect the anastomotic site and the tissue from damage.

  • Remove excess tissue.

  • Press the reset button, and each part will automatically return to its initial position. Check the anastomotic site to see if there is any needle leakage (bleeding or needle leakage). If there is, manually suture it in a timely manner.

  • When the Endoscopic Linear Stapler is withdrawn, be careful not to use violence or pull it out with force.
