Working Principle and Usage Analysis of a Surgical Stapler

With the improvement of our economic level and continuous progress in medical technology, medical conditions and facilities are rapidly developing. Medical staplers are commonly used for special populations, and they are devices used during surgery to replace traditional manual suturing.

The medical stapler is mainly composed of a nail warehouse clamp, a nail abutment, a straight tube, an adjusting knob, a firing handle, a movable handle, a fixed handle, a switching button, a knife display, a reset button, and a medical stapler. Compared with traditional manual suturing, medical staplers have the characteristics of fast stitching, simple operation, high safety factor, low recurrence, and low surgical complications. They can effectively improve the efficiency of medical personnel and ensure the safety of patients.

How does a medical stapler work?

Staplers are commonly used medical devices in surgical operations with wide range of clinical applications and various types. However, their basic working principle is based on the B-shaped staple pattern. Taking a laparoscopic stapler as an example, it is mainly composed of a staple box, a handle, a transmission component, etc. There is a blade in the staple box, which completes tissue section and staple at the same time. There are 6 rows of staples in the staple box. After the tissue is cut, 3 rows of staples on each side bend into a "B" shape under the abutment and complete the tissue stapling.

How to use surgical stapler?

Skin staplers are common surgical tools used to firmly attach cut skin or tissues together. They can provide firm closure at the incision site, reduce the incidence of wound recurrence and shorten healing time, as well as reduce trauma during surgery and improve surgical outcomes.

The steps to use a skin stapler are:

1. Preparation: Before the surgery, prepare the skin stapler, including cleaning and disinfecting the surgical table and preparing the necessary disinfectants and surgical equipment.

2. Place the skin stapler at the incision site: Place one end of the skin stapler on one side of the incision and the other end on the other side, and clamp it tightly.

3. Lock the skin stapler: Pull up the locking mechanism of the skin stapler to clamp the two ends of the skin stapler tightly on the incision site to prevent sliding during the stapling process.

4. Check the stapling result: Check if the incision has been completely stapled. If it is not, use the skin stapler to staple the incision again.

5. Remove the skin stapler: After checking the stapling result, the skin stapler needs to be removed to avoid affecting the healing of the skin or tissues.

6. Clean and disinfect: After removing the skin stapler, it needs to be cleaned and disinfected to avoid contamination and virus transmission.

Surgical stapler uses

Surgical staplers are used in surgical operations to tightly staple the edges of incisions, reducing tissue damage, improving surgical quality, and shortening the recovery period. It can be used for skin, muscles, organs, blood vessels, and fixation of implants.
