Effect of Tri-Staple Technology and Slow Firing on Secure Stapling Using an Endoscopic Linear Stapler.

AIM To evaluate the effect of Tri-staple technology and slow firing using the Endo-GIA endoscopic linear stapler. METHODS The cardiac and pyloric portions of porcine stomachs were divided using the endoscopic linear stapler with different reload types. A total of 8 min of waiting time was employed during firing in the slow-firing group and no waiting time… (More)
