A disposable bladeless laparoscopic trocar is a single-use medical device that creates a working channel in the abdominal wall during laparoscopic procedures. Its bladeless design, featuring a plastic tip, allows for easy penetration while minimizing the risk of injury. The non-blade piercing cone head separates tissue rather than cutting it, reducing penetrating damage and the likelihood of postoperative hernias.
Many bladeless trocars also have an optical component, providing a wider field of vision and allowing the surgeon to monitor the puncture process in real-time. This further reduces the risk of tissue damage.
In summary, disposable bladeless laparoscopic trocars provide a safe and effective means of establishing a working channel during laparoscopic surgery. They are designed to minimize tissue damage, reduce complications, and provide a clear visual field for the surgeon.
