Ethicon Endo-Surgery introduces the ENDOPATH® XCEL™ with OPTIVIEW™ Technology, a trocar specifically designed to provide visualization by virtually eliminating trocar-induced smudging. The trocars are designed to wipe bodily fluid or debris from the endoscope shaft and draw the fluid through wicking channels out radially towards the absorbent ring. The fluid is then contained within the absorbent ring, keeping the endoscope clear upon trocar reinsertion, thus helping to provide optimal views of the surgical field. The trocar is also equipped to provide the same performance of previous ENDOPATH® XCEL™ trocars, including seal durability, low drag force, abdominal wall retention and low port site herniation.
