Among complications, the end-to-end intestinal anastomosis is reported to predispose the patient to stricture formation, post-operatively.
Risks associated with the occurrence of complications, with respect to the application technique of end-to-end intestinal anastomosis may limit its adaptability to routine surgical practice.
On the whole, although stapled suturing technique is an expensive method to be used in veterinary practice for intestinal anastomosis, however, keeping in view its efficacy and minimal post-operative complications in small animals, the economic restraints can be negotiated and the technique proves rapidly adaptable for routine clinical practice.
Conclusion: The stapled technique for intestinal anastomosis is more preferable than the conventional hand-sewn method because it requires less time for application which consequently reduces the surgical time and hospitalization duration, which in turn, are desirable factors to reduce patient morbidity and mortality.

The intestinal anastomosis was end-to-end in case of hand-sewn and both end-to-end and side-to-side functional end anastomosis in case of stapled anastomosis depending on the site of anastomosis and surgeon's preference.
