A surgical suturing stapler uses a staple cartridge for containing substantially U-shaped staples, which cartridge can be detachably fitted into a cartridge holder placed between two jaws. The staples can be easily loaded into the staple cartridge by detaching the cartridge from the stapler. When closing the jaws between which the stapler cartridge is placed, the staples in the cartridge are discharged and inserted into bodily tissues or the like to be sutured. By using the staple cartridge magnetized, the staples of metallic material are magnetically retained within the staple cartridge.
