Recent years have seen a development of minimally invasive surgery with the aim of reducing the number and size of surgical wounds.
While the great progress has been achieved, the use of the circular mechanical surgical stapler still needs visual and mechanical control to connect the stapler head to the body, a must step in a successful stapler operation.
This invention provides a pioneer device to aid the operation of the circular mechanical surgical stapler. It allows to carry out the coupling between the anvil and the stapler body without the need of a visual and manual control, and thus a less invasive, shorter and safer surgical procedures, such as the ones of the abdominal cavity, can be performed.
