MACHADO, Marcel Autran C. et al. Use of vascular stapling device in liver resections. Arq. Gastroenterol. [online]. 2005, vol.42, n.2, pp.107-110. ISSN 1678-4219.

BACKGROUND: Among several liver resection techniques, the use of stapler in the portal pedicles is an interesting option. AIM: To describe the technique of liver resection using a vascular stapling device. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of eight patients underwent hepatic resections with stapling techniques. The authors have used intrahepatic approach glissonian pedicles with the application of a vascular stapler device in all cases. Liver parenchyma and hepatic veins were transected as usual. RESULTS: There were no deaths. No complications directly attributable to stapler ligations of portal pedicles were observed. CONCLUSION: Stapling techniques can be helpful in hepatic resection procedures. The vascular stapler may significantly reduce glissonian pedicle section time.
