Many injuries happen with surgical staplers – sometimes due to malfunctioning of the device, but more commonly due to operator error or surgical malpractice.
Problems include staplers that fail or misfire, staples that do not form properly, separation of suture lines and stapling devices that become stuck in patients’ tissue. Patients can suffer bleeding, infection and anastomosis failure (that means the separation of the surgical connection between internal organs and vessels, such as sections of the intestine after weight loss surgery).
