Trocar Depth Control Device
Thu, 05/15/2008 - 6:32am
The Laprostop is an innovative device intended to help the surgeon control the trocar insertion depth by providing a way to stop the trocar at a pre-determined depth. It attaches to the outside of the trocar, and can be locked into place at any point along the cannula. If the surgeon chooses, the Laprostop can be sutured to the patient's skin, helping to provide further stability. The Laprostop is inexpensive, disposable and is available in sizes to fit 5 mm and 10/11 mm trocars (12 mm available soon).
