Applying staples after surgery can be a painful experience for the patient as they are waking up from their surgical procedure. The instrument used to apply the staples can vary from one surgeon to the next. The GIA Auto Suture Stapler with DST Series Technology makes the application process easier on the doctor by providing a handful of benefits. The single-use reloadable stapler has a 60 millimeter length and uses 3.8 millimeter titanium staples and places two double-staggered rows while cutting and dividing tissue between the rows. The GIA Reloadable Stapler uses Single Use Loading Units (SULU) and this specific version is available in a 60 millimeter length. Each Stapler may be reloaded up to seven times and can deliver eight staples per cartridge.
GIA's Directional Stapling Technology allows for a better staple formation upon applying. The application process used by the GIA Auto Suture Stapler results in a higher resistance to fluid leakage and a lower percentage of staples being twisted, skewed or otherwise deformed onto the body. The end result is a better organized, more secure suture. It also makes the removal process easier for the physician and in turn may cause less pain for the patient once taken out of the body. Minimal twisting, minimal leaking and a better formation can be had with the GIA Auto Suture Stapler with DST Series Technology.
The GIA Stapler has plenty of other features that make it easier on the person applying the staples as well. A few of these include an advanced tip, lock lever, an adjustable firing knob and a rear hinge.
The straightened, protected dual tip design helps keep the staple straight upon application. This means that a reduced number of staples needing reapplication and a cleaner formation once set in place. The lock lever allows for easier access while the inlay grips improve on the tool's handling. Other features include an adjustable firing knob, allowing both right- and left-handers to be able to use the trigger on either side. It also has a rear hinge for better one-handed positioning.
