Laparoscopic Access/Trocar Safety System
The VersaStep Plus Access System provided safe and controlled non-bladed entry that reduces abdominal wall complications and patient injuries including port site abdominal wall bleeding, decreased abdominal visceral and vascular injuries, and reduced post-operative pain. The access system, which incorporates proprietary Step Radial Dilation Technology, provides a consistently smaller fascial defect and superior port fixation by gently spreading tissue during port insertion as opposed to cutting or “grinding” through it. By using the unique Step Radially Expandable Sleeve and Step dilator, downward insertion forces are mitigated by transferring the downward or axial insertion forces (typically experienced with trocar insertion) laterally or radially into the tissues of the abdominal wall. The system is available in a wide range of lengths and sizes as well as disposable and reposable configurations.
