Anastomotic leak following colorectal surgery can be a devastating adverse event. The ideal stapling device should be capable of rapid creation of an anastomosis with serosal apposition without the persistence of a foreign body or a foreign body reaction which potentially contribute to early anastomotic dehiscence or late anastomotic stricture. A systematic review was performed examining available data on controlled randomized and non-randomized trials assessing the NiTi compression anastomosis ring-(NiTi CAR™) (NiTi Solutions, Netanyah Israel) in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses (PRISMA) standards...

BACKGROUND: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion is currently the most commonly used technique in cervical surgery. But the implantation of a traditional plate is time-consuming and exposes the patient to additional adverse events. In this study, we analyzed results in patients who underwent anterior cervical discectomy and fusion with C-JAWS fixation. The C-JAWS device is a new cervical compressive staple developed to stabilize the spacer. METHODS: At our department, between January 2012 and December 2013, nine consecutive patients with cervical spondylopathy underwent an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion process in which we used a polyether ether ketone cervical spacer prefilled with bone substitute and secured with a cervical compressive staple...

Postoperative pancreatic fistulas represent the most frequent complication after distal and segmental pancreatectomy and occur with a frequency of up to 50 %. There are many technical variations of pancreatic stump treatment for reduction of fistula rates after distal resection. Most of these techniques have only been analyzed in retrospective studies and the evidence for or against a specific technique is low. Several retrospective trials have been conducted with good results to compare suturing with stapled closure of the remnant and to assess the effect of a vascularized falciform ligament patch in reducing postoperative pancreatic fistula; however, in a recently published randomized trial, which analyzed closure of the remnant with a pancreaticojejunostomy compared to standard closure, these results could not be confirmed...

BACKGROUND: The field of orthopaedics is a constantly evolving discipline. Despite the historical success of plates, pins and screws in fracture reduction and stabilisation, there is a continuing search for more efficient and improved methods of fracture fixation. The aim of this study was to evaluate shape-memory staples and to compare them to a currently used implant for internal fracture fixation. Multi-plane bending stability and interfragmentary compression were assessed across a simulated osteotomy using single and double-staple fixation and compared to a bridging plate...

The sleeve gastrectomy has been accepted as a primary bariatric procedure. One of the most feared complications is staple line leakage. It is important to use the right staple sizes to minimize the risk of leak. Knowledge of gastric thickness is important. The goal of this study was to measure the thickness of the gastric wall after elimination of the gastric folds in the mucosa. An electronic thickness gauge was developed that measured the anterior and posterior wall of the fresh stomach specimen together at 5 points at a pressure based on the finger pressure necessary to flatten the gastric folds...
