Cut endoscope re-wipes in half*
Most effective smudge mitigation vs. leading trocars
5mm ENDOPATH XCEL Bladeless Trocars with OPTIVIEW Technology have twice as much peak retention force compared to leading 5mm Applied Medical trocars with threaded sleeves.1 12mm ENDOPATH XCEL Bladeless Trocars with OPTIVIEW Technology have higher peak retention force than leading 12mm Applied Medical bladeless trocars.2
Designed to reduce smudging
Reduced smudging means fewer procedural disruptions
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. Smudging upon endoscope reinsertion: necessitates frequent re-wiping, may disrupt procedural flow and may lead to surgeon distractions.
Concentrate on what counts
Designed to allow you to concentrate on the procedure (not the trocar)
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.
