a first deformable member (1304, 1344, 1404, 1452);

a base (1301, 1408), said first deformable member extending from said base; and

a driver (1302, 1402, 1451), said driver including:

a cam-contacting surface (1328, 1453), said cam-contacting surface configured to operatively engage with a cam (1462) of a stapler; and characterised in that:

at least a portion of said base is embedded in said driver, and said driver further includes:

a tissue-contacting surface (1336), said first deformable member configured to hold tissue intermediate said first deformable member and said tissue-contacting surface.


  2. The surgical staple (1300, 1340, 1350, 1360, 1370, 1380, 1400, 1450) of Claim 1, wherein said driver (1302, 1402, 1451) is overmolded onto said base (1301, 1408).
