ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the use of surgical stapling equipment that offer alternatives to conventional hand-suturing techniques in veterinary surgery. Surgical stapling devices have greatly facilitated abdominal surgery in small-animal practice. Speed, efficiency, and ease of application are the primary reasons for their widespread acceptance by veterinary surgeons. Vascular clips like surgiclips, ligate divide staplers and skin staplers are mastered easily with minimal training. Veterinarians will benefit from a basic training course to master the use of linear and circular staplers.
