The new stapleless staplers are available in a choice of up to 6 colours so they are suitable for colour coded applications.
OUTCOME FACTORS: Both hand sewn and stapler anastomosis in all 3 groups were compared on following parameters:
The global surgical stapler market was valued at USD 3,046.3 million in 2017, and is projected to reach USD 5,636.6 million by the end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of 8.2% during 2018-2025.
Ligation was done using an Endo GIA stapler in group 1 (n=20) and with Hem-o-lok polymer clips in group 2 (n=26).
In total gastrectomy group, post total gastric resection, end-to-end oesophagojejunostomy with side-to-side jejunojejunostomy was done by stapler or hand-sewn technique.
To the best of our knowledge no similar technique has been described in literature with the use of circular stapler for corrosive stricture.
However, the two sites vary in the circular stapler height used to fashion the GJ with one site using the traditional 4.8 mm stapler and the other using a 3.5 mm stapler.
Currently two methods are being used for the purpose of anastomosis; the first one is a hand sewn method, while the second one involves the use of circular surgical stapling device, known as the EEA stapler. Furthermore, the anastomosis can be performed in a single layer or double layers using appositional suturing patterns (simple interrupted, simple continuous), as reported by Nasir Khan et al.
