Surgical staplers are specialised medical devices that are used in the surgical procedures instead of sutures, in order to close the wounds on skin and other internal organs in the body. The surgical staplers are majorly used in complex surgical procedures such as gynaecologic, thoracic and gastrointestinal procedures. The surgical staplers are more prominently used over surgical sutures owing to advantages such as quick placement, accurate  and strong wound closure, minimal interaction with the tissue, low risk of infection and reduction in inflammation near the wound. Modern surgical stapling devices are either disposable (made of plastic) or reusable (made of stainless steel) and are pre-equipped with disposable cartridges. Also, powered or battery-operated surgical staplers are increasingly being used in comparison to manually operated surgical stapling devices owing to technological advancements.

Surgical stapling devices were first developed in the early 20th century and have been since used as a mode of mechanical suturing in several surgical procedures. The initially designed and developed surgical stapling devices were highly acclaimed, however, the devices were bulky in nature, hard to operate, cumbersome and very expensive to manufacture. Eventually after several years of experimentation and development in the devices, the surgical staplers began to emerge as more efficient and effective in the wound closure procedure. In the recent years, arrival of minimally invasive surgical procedures has resulted in manufacturing of endoscopic surgical staplers. And hence, since then the surgical staplers have provided efficient and effective wound closure in several complicated surgical procedures. The surgical staplers continue to evolve maintaining the basic principles that were implemented in the original design.
