What are the different types of trocars?
The following trocar types were examined: radially expanding versus cutting (six studies; 604 participants), conical blunt-tipped versus cutting (two studies; 72 participants), radially expanding versus conical blunt-tipped (one study; 28 participants) and single-bladed versus pyramidal-bladed (one study; 28 …
What is the benefit of a durable universal seal on the trocar sleeve?
The top of the trocar has a durable universal seal that helps maintain the integrity of the endoscopic tube upon entry. Without the need of a reducer cap, the bladeless trocar is able to reduce drag force by a minimum of 24 percent.
What are trocars used for?
Abstract. Trocars are used during laparoscopic procedures and other minimally invasive surgery (MIS) to make small, puncturelike incisions in outer tissue layers. These incisions allow surgeons to insert cannulas through which surgical instruments can be introduced.
What is Hasson technique?
The open technique was first described by Hasson in 1970. This technique consists of creating a small umbilical incision under direct visualization to enter the abdominal cavity followed by the introduction of a blunt trocar. Pneumoperitoneum is then rapidly created.
Where are trocars placed?
Therefore trocars are usually placed in the lower abdomen lateral to the rectus muscle above the ASIS (Fig. 112.6). If an additional trocar is required, it is placed at the level of the umbilicus lateral to the rectus muscle.
What types of trocars are used for laparoscopy?
What is a Hasson port?
The GENICON Single-Use Hasson Port System’s compelling features are designed for and by laparoscopic surgeons who prefer an “open technique” for the initial trocar insertion site. The 13mm-5mm trocar system consists of a Blunt Tip Obturator and a suture anchoring device to secure the cannula into place.
What is curette set?
