Experimental evaluation of absorbable copolymer staples for hysterectomy.

PMID:  3737065     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Absorbable copolymer staples of three different variants were tested for retention of tensile strength after implantation into the peritoneal cavity of rats. One type maintained tensile strength for two weeks, but then lost it rapidly over the next week. The same three staple compounds were further compared after use for vaginal vault closure during ovariohysterectomy in adult sheep. In all ewes the absorbable staples were effective in providing a stable vaginal cuff closure. The postoperative tissue reaction was minimal. The goal of developing an absorbable staple that would degrade rapidly without compromising wound stability was achieved.
