Ethicon offers three types of resposable trocar systems:
Bladeless Trocar Obturator and Housing Assembly
Our disposable obturator and housing assembly, with a reusable (sterilizable) sleeve. The sleeve is 75mm or 100mm in length. The assembly and sleeve are designed to only be used together.
The obturator has a clear, tapered optical element that, when used with an endoscope, provides visibility of individual tissue layers during insertion. The sleeve housing contains a seal and internal flapper valve to minimize gas leakage when instruments are inserted or withdrawn. There is a stopcock valve for insufflation.
Dilating-Tip Obturator and Housing Assembly System
Our disposable obturator and housing assembly are used in conjunction with a reusable sleeve. The dilating-tip trocar consists of a flat-bladed tip and a spring-loaded blade shield. The shield is designed to cover the tip to protect internal structures from puncture or laceration once the abdominal or thoracic cavity has been entered. The trocar sleeve housing contains a sealing system to minimize gas leakage when instruments are inserted or withdrawn. It includes a stopcock valve for insufflation.
Blunt-Tip Trocar System
Our disposable blunt-tip obturator, housing assembly and adjustable plug assist with trocar stability in the patient. The obturator has a blunt plastic tip that gently moves aside any internal viscera that may be adjacent to the abdominal or thoracic wall. The trocar sleeve housing contains a sealing system to minimize gas leakage when instruments are inserted or withdrawn and includes a stopcock valve for insufflation.
Resposable Accessories are designed to be used solely with the resposable trocar systems.
Our trocar sleeve housing is a sterile single-patient-use device with a reusable (sterilizable) sleeve. It is part of the resposable trocar system. It contains an outer gasket and internal sealing system to minimize gas leakage when instruments are inserted or withdrawn.
The trocar size corresponds to the maximum size of the instrument, and there is a stopcock valve for gas insufflation. The housing is designed to be used solely with the resposable trocar system.
Reusable Cannula Sleeve
Our reusable trocar sleeve is made of polyphenylsulfone plastic and is available in both smooth and stability-sleeve configurations. It is part of the resposable trocar system. The sleeve must be sterilized prior to use (packaged non-sterile), and is designed to be used solely with the resposable trocar system.
ENDOPATH® ONESEAL Reducer Cap
This reducer cap is a sterile single-patient-use device. It is designed to snap into the open end of an ENDOPATH 10/11mm and 10/12mm Trocar sleeve housing. The main body is made of molded plastic and contains a self-adjusting seal, accommodating instruments ranging from 5mm to 12mm diameter where indicated. Once the cap is attached, an instrument (smaller diameter than the Trocar) can be inserted without loss of pneumoperitoneum. Latches ensure that the reducer cap is held securely in place during insertion. The reducer cap is easily removed by pulling or pushing up on its side.Request Rep Follow-up
