A disposable retrieval bag is a medical device used during laparoscopic surgical procedures to collect and extract tissue specimens from the body. These bags are designed to be used once and then discarded, hence the name “disposable” retrieval bag. They are typically made of a flexible plastic material and come in various sizes to accommodate different types of tissue specimens.
To use a disposable retrieval bag, the surgeon first makes a small incision in the patient’s body and inserts a laparoscope, which is a thin tube with a camera attached to its end. The laparoscope allows the surgeon to see inside the body and perform the surgery. Once the tissue specimen has been located, the surgeon inserts the retrieval bag through the same incision used for the laparoscope. The bag is attached to a long shaft with an introducer at one end and a handle at the other.
The surgeon uses the handle to deploy the bag within the body cavity. Some retrieval bags have support arms that facilitate bag opening and tissue capture during laparoscopic procedures1. Once the bag is open, the surgeon uses surgical instruments to place the tissue specimen inside. After the specimen has been collected, the surgeon closes the bag by pulling on a string with a slip knot. The bag is then carefully extracted from the body through the same incision used for its insertion.
Disposable retrieval bags are crucial in ensuring that tissue specimens are collected and extracted safely and effectively during laparoscopic surgery. They help prevent complications such as tumor metastases and heterotopic growth of normal cells. With their ease of use and reliable performance, disposable retrieval bags have become an essential tool in modern laparoscopic surgery.
