Using Surgical Instruments Like the Endo Stapler for Endo Surgery
Endo surgery means “within” or “inside”, but is also commonly in reference to the surgery utilised to treat endometriosis in women.
Scar tissue and cysts can be tricky to remove and require laparoscopic surgery to correct. This begins with a small incision in the lower abdomen, and the insertion of a laparoscope that enables the surgeon to see the problematic tissue so it can be removed.
Special surgical instruments are utilised for endo surgery, as well as for sealing up the wound once the procedure has been done.
The Invention of the Endo Stapler
It’s quite interesting to know that the stapler was invented in 1866, due to King Louis XV having the need to hold papers together.
Since then, a furniture stapler was invented to connect fabric to wood. At some point, a surgeon thought how handy a stapler could be to reconnect tissue back together after a patient has had surgery. Medical staplers were invented in 1908.
While it sounds a bit uncomfortable, an endo stapler is used while the patient is under anesthetic and can be a quicker way to seal a wound back together again. Endo staplers are also much different than the initial invention early last century.
There are also a wide range of different endo staplers depending on the type of surgery that is required for the patient.
Medical Benefits of the Endo Stapler
A surgeon can more quickly close a wound with a medical stapler. Since staples are used, rather than threaded sutures, there is less risk that the wound will become infected, as organisms can’t penetrate the staples.
Staples are also a lot easier to be removed once the wound has healed up. The patient will also require less anesthesia, making the procedure much safer.
Ethicon Curved Circular Stapler
The Ethicon Curved Circular Stapler is a popular product among surgeons. It has many benefits. It’s been designed to improve insertion into the wound to reconnect tissue.
It can be easily used, and then removed once the wound has been reconnected. This medical instrument is available in different diameters, so the appropriate size can be chosen based on the size of the wound.
Ehthicon Circular Stapler Options
There are four different Ethicon Circular Stapler options. They vary in price according to size. They all have the 18cm shaft length but can vary from 21 mm to 25 mm to 29 mm to 33 mm.
The height is adjustable so that it can accommodate a compression tissue thickness from 1 mm to 2.5 mm, such as may happen with leg tissue. The Ethicon stapler also has a non-slip grip meaning the surgeon can have better accuracy without worries of slippage.
A more accurate grip also provides better comfort and control to the surgeon.
Endo staplers are definitely one of the most useful inventions early last century.
