Event Description

After creating a lower colon anastomosis the surgeon applied an eea surgical stapling device to secure the anastomosis. The device was used according to manufacturer's instructions/directions. The device appeared to function properly and sounded as though it was firing. However, after the stapling device was removed, the anastomosis released and the tissues came apart. Inspection of the tissues revealed the stapler did not fire. The staples did not close to secure the anastomosis. Additional tissue from the rectum was resected to create a new anastomosis. A stapling device from a different manufacturer was obtained and utilized to secure a new anastomosis. The patient may have some bowel dysfunction because of this event.
