Nice Surgical is developing a stapling device that serves to divide the bowel at the proximal and distal level of resection as well as place a ‘pursestring suture’ to prepare the bowel for the Intra Corporeal Anastomosis (ICA). The stapling device accomplishes two critical tasks by simultaneously stapling closed the specimen while applying a ‘pursestring suture’ to the portion of the bowel to be used for an end-to-end circular stapled anastomosis.
