ABSTRACT A new technique of inserting the distal purse-string suture for the E.E.A. stapling device in a low anterior resection of the rectum is described. The technique is simple and time saving, and does not require any special instruments.

    ABSTRACT: Die Auswertung der Ergebnisse mit Nahtgeräten in der Thorax-und Abdominalchirurgie zeigte, daß diese zumindest ebenso sicher wie Handnähte sind und den Vorteil beträchtlicher Zeitersparnis sowie Herstellung feinerer Anastomosen ohne Wülste besitzen. Das EEA-Gerät erlaubt außerdem tieferliegende Rektumanastomosen als sie mit Handnähten möglich sind.

    ABSTRACT: This study reports the preliminary results of a new totally stapled end-to-end colonic anastomosis in 11 dogs. This "triple-stapled" end-to-end anastomosis was performed with one circular staple line and two linear staple lines, eliminating the need for a colotomy or purse-string suture. The fact that the anvil and anvil stem of a new circular stapling device (Premium EEA) can be detached from the frame of the instrument allows the anvil stem to be brought out through the proximal linear stapled colon. The trocar mounted on the main stem of the circular stapler allows the stem of the main device to be brought out through the distal staple line. Thus, a totally stapled colonic anastomosis is created after mating the anvil stem and main stem of the instrument. The new anastomosis was evaluated radiographically and at necropsy. The use of this technique resulted in no clinically detectable leaks, suggesting that it may facilitate the performance of anterior resections in humans.
