Not all ports require the same level of trocar functionality. That's why Ethicon developed a portfolio of trocars that offers the flexibility to choose the right trocar for the right level of performance…when and where it’s needed.
ENDOPATH XCEL Trocars with OPTIVIEW Technology are designed to reduce smudging of the endoscope upon reinsertion by wiping, wicking, and absorbing fluid that builds up inside the trocar seal housing.*
The repeated smudging of the endoscope lens that occurs when it is reinserted into a trocar (after just being cleaned) is a common frustration among surgeons.
See how ENDOPATH XCEL Trocar with OPTIVIEW Technology is the most effective at reducing smudging during endoscope/scope reinsertion.* Only OPTIVIEW® Technology wipes bodily fluid off the endoscope shaft, wicks it away and absorbs it.Schedule a Demo
Designed for the camera port, the ENDOPATH XCEL Trocar with OPTIVIEW Technology is the only trocar that reduces smudging of the endoscope upon reinsertion by wiping, wicking and absorbing fluid that can build up inside the trocar housing.*
The ENDOPATH XCEL Trocar with OPTIVIEW Technology is a sterile single patient use instrument consisting of a radiolucent sleeve and bladeless obturator in sizes 5 mm and 12 mm diameter. The bladeless obturator contains a clear, tapered optical element. The 5 mm and 12 mm diameter bladeless obturators accommodate an appropriately sized 0º endoscope and provide visibility of individual tissue layers during insertion. OPTIVIEW Technology keeps bodily fluids away from the camera during reinsertion to offer smudge mitigation during camera reinsertion, to minimize interruptions, and to preserve procedural flow.
ENDOPATH XCEL Trocars with OPTIVIEW Technology are available in 5mm and 12mm sizes in bladeless tip, dilating tip, blunt tip (12mm only) and universal sleeve.Fact Sheet
