The bag should be closed when completely cinched. There will likely be remaining plastic on the flexible metal ring.
The bag should be completely detached from the metal ring with one to two inches of exposed suture between the tip of the instrument and the bag. Next, the plunger should be pulled away from the instrument so that the flexible metal ring is retracted completely into the shaft of the instrument. Then, the instrument shaft can be pulled up until the neck of the bag reaches the body surface. After the pouch has been inspected for air and any remaining air is removed, the purse string can be cut.
