Surgical Instruments Designed For LESS
Company introduces new disposable multi-Instrument access port, curved hand instruments and laparo-thoraco videoscope for single-incision surgical procedures
October 23, 2009
Olympus introduces three new surgical instruments specifically designed for Laparo-Endoscopic Single-Site (LESS) surgery. LESS surgery is an advanced, minimally invasive surgical technique in which an endoscope and hand instruments are inserted through an access port via a single incision often made in the navel. The three new devices include:
- The QuadPort™, a disposable multi-instrument access port that can simultaneously accommodate up to four instruments, including a laparoscope, through a single incision. It features four ports, one 15mm, two 10mm, and one 5mm, allows the surgeon to insert up to four instruments into a single incision. As a result, the QuadPort also allows more room for increased maneuverability and it allows larger specimens to be extracted.
- The EndoEYE® LS Laparo-Thoraco Videoscope, which incorporates a deflectable control section to help prevent interference with other devices externally.
