The use of the GIA stapler has reduced dramatically the operative time for the creation of urinary division ileal and colonic loops. It is widely known that steel staples in the urinary tract prompt stone formation around a foreign body. A case of stone formation around a GIA stainless steel staple is presented. A possible solution to this potential problem by the use of the new Polysorb-Lactimer absorbable TA55 stapler is presented.
