Demonstration of the connection of the anvil to the tip of an Autosuture DST series EEA circular stapler used in laparoscopic gastric bypass and esophageal repair surgeries.

Click here for full screen view
The anvil shaft is attached to a gastric tube and the anvil is secured in the flat position by a suture. It is designed to be introduced orally and guided through the esophagus using the gastric tube. After delivery, the suture is cut, the gastric tube is pulled away, and the stapler is connected to the anvil. As the trocar advances into the anvil shaft, the anvil is forced into the open position and locks into place. The two parts of the stapler are then drawn together for the actual stapling.
