Introduction: An anastomosis becomes necessary when a segment of the gastrointestinal tract is resected for benign or malignant disease and gastrointestinal continuity needs to be restored. The two most commonly used anastomotic techniques are handsewn anastomosis and stapled anastomosis.
Aim of Study: The aim of my study is to evaluate the outcome of uses of stapler in gastrointestinal surgeries in comparison to conventional hand suture methods.
Objectives of the study:
•To assess the advantages and disadvantages of stapler use in gastrointestinal surgeries in terms of following:
1.Mean operating time.
3. Stricture formation.
Conclusion: Stapled anastomosis is better in terms of time, complication and cost effective than Handsewen anastomosis.
