Stapler/Cutters, Surgical, Linear, Multipurpose

Definition : Multipurpose surgical staplers designed to deliver staples to tissues from one up to several (e.g., six) staggered rows following a linear pattern These staplers/cutters usually consist of a manual instrument with an insulated tubular shaft that provides tissue cutting and stapling capabilities at the distal of and a handle. The instrument may include an articulated mechanism at the distal end to provide different angles of operation. The integrated handle at the proximal end includes a firing mechanism for cutting and stapling; some powered instruments include a motor and battery inside the handle. Processed biological tissue (e.g., bovine pericardium) may be used as a buttressing material for reinforcement of the stapled tissues to prevent leakage and/or staple-hole enlargement. Linear staplers/cutters are used with different staple cartridges with sizes (e.g., 1.5, 2.0 height) according to the thickness of the tissue to be resected and stapled. They are intended for transection, resection, and/or creation of anastomoses in a variety of open or minimally invasive surgical procedures (e.g., gynecologic, urologic, thoracic) procedures and also for transection and resection of other organ tissues (e.g., liver parenchyma, pancreas, kidney, and spleen).
