A tissue staple that includes a pair of legs arranged generally parallel to one another connected by a pair of tabs. The tabs define an arc that extends distally from the proximal ends of the legs, and further define a slot between the tabs. The distal end of the leg may include a forked portion that defines two or more tissue piercing prongs. The location of the fork also may define a tissue stop. The legs may also include an indent that bends inwardly toward an indent formed on the other leg.
