English term or phrase:purse-string suture
In terms of safety, the authors believe the circular end-to-end anastomosis stapling technique is clearly
preferable. However, the extremely thick abdominal
walls pose technical difficulties in the correct guidance
of the stapler. It is often tricky to pass the anvil
through the small opening created in the gastric pouch
(Fig. 21). The use of a specially designed “anvil
grasper” (KARL STORZ, 33331 AV) simplifies this maneuver
(Fig. 22). In any case, the anvil should be secured
with a purse-string suture once the opening is
made in the pouch (Fig. 23).
