We just recently received notification that the stapler is discontinued as of April 6, 2022. The letter from Medtronic stated that "The Premium Poly CS Stapler is subject to US FDA's Reclassification and Label Guidance for internal surgical staplers. At this time Medtronic is unable to continue commercial distribution of this product through traditional 510(k) market clearance authorization. As a result, we regret to inform you that the Premium Polu CS Stapler will no longer be commercially available after April 6th, 2022."
What are we supposed to do? I am also curious as to how we can safely perform open and EXIT procedures without the staplers.
