Olympus recently launched the new TriPort+ access port for single-site surgery. The TriPort+ has three 5 mm ports and a 10 mm port (reducible to 5 mm) enabling a surgeon to replicate the traditional 4-port Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy through a single incision in the umbilicus. The ports have a duckbill/lipseal valve design that facilitates easy introduction and removal of instruments while maintaining pneumoperitoneum. In addition, the flexible instrument ports enhance access to the surgical site and accommodate different types and sizes of laparoscopic instruments: straight, curved and articulating. The port is able to accommodate abdominal wall thickness up to 10 cm and the retraction sleeve provides wound protection. Furthermore, the port has a removable top for specimen retrieval without removing the port.
