  • About this book

The Operation Primer provides excellent photographic step-by-step guidance to the surgical procedure. It has been produced to describe the operation in the simplest manner possible without over-simplifying. The core of the Operation Primer is the section on Nodal Points, where the key surgical steps are described in detail. This surgical guidebook provides essential reference material to surgeons wishing to update their knowledge in this specific area.

The Operation Primer Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection (STARR) with Contour® TranstarTM Curved Cutter Stapler Procedure Set is aimed at surgeons who wish to familiarize themselves with a transanal operation procedure for obstruction defecation syndrome (ODS). It is useful for all surgeons who want to apply Contour® TranstarTM Curved Cutter Stapler Procedure Set, a stapler instrument especially developed for transanal rectal resections. It allows cutting and stapling simultaneously; therefore, no other instruments are necessary to perform transanal resection. The Operation Primer gives a detailed overview of the patients’ preparation, key surgical steps, and pitfalls of Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection. The major goal was to provide a comprehensive surgical guidebook for surgeons performing Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection.
