How do you use a GIA stapler?

The GIA stapler places two double rows of staggered B-shaped stables 3.5mm apart and then incises in between. It is used most often in combination with a TA stapler to create functional end-to-end anastomoses. The EEA stapler places a circular double-row of staples.

In this way, what is an Endo GIA stapler?

What are surgical staples made of?

Although most surgical staples are made of titanium, stainless steel is more often used in some skin staples and clips. Titanium produces less reaction with the immune system and, being non-ferrous, does not interfere significantly with MRI scanners, although some imaging artifacts may result.
