Laparoscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique performed through a keyhole incision. A small camera along with a light source attached to a tube enables surgeons to manoeuvre special disposable laparoscopic instruments to the target area and carry out the surgery. This technique is mainly preferred for carrying out surgeries related to the pancreas, liver, colon and bile duct. The use of disposable laparoscopic instruments reduce the risk of infection during surgery.
Laparoscopic surgery is a procedure performed through one or multiple small incisions, rather than through a larger incision through the abdominal wall. Depending upon the nature of the specific surgical procedure, laparoscopic entry can be performed using a closed (Veress needle, optical access) or open technique (Hasson technique).
Disposable laparoscopic instruments find applications for various other surgeries such as general surgery, bariatric surgery, colorectal surgery, urologic surgery, gynaecologic surgeries and others. Laparoscopic scissors are used in laparoscopic surgery for dissection, the scissors come in different tip lengths. Laparoscopic hooks are available for procedures that are bipolor or monopolar or feature graduated marking, such as hook probes. The hooks are Nonstick PTFE coated making them safe to use during surgery.
Grasping forceps & dissectors are used for laparoscopic surgery for the grip and the dissectors are used for making cuts during surgery. Trocar is a pen-shaped instrument widely used in laparoscopy procedure to create opening in a patient’s body. Each laparoscopy procedure normally needs three to four trocars. Laparoscopic suction/irrigation devices constantly supply pressurized irrigation fluid and incorporate a leak-free seal.
