Technology & Product(s)
There is an estimated 10 million laparoscopic procedures performed annually Worldwide. While laparoscopic surgeries are less invasive, closing abdominal access ports remains a difficult and time-consuming task. Today, surgeons manually close the ports with sutures, adding up to 20 minutes per operation. There are surgeons who use a dedicated closure device, as opposed to a simple suture, adding significantly to procedure cost and presenting safety problems.
The TroClose1200 is an integrated port closure system that offers surgeons a simple, secure and safe solution to open and suture close the abdominal wall during laparoscopic procedures. Instead of insertion of closure sutures into the fascia at the end of a procedure, Gordian’s uniquely designed “two in one” obturator & cannula efficiently inserts absorbable sutures into the peritoneal tissue surrounding the cannula at the beginning of the procedure. Two absorbable anchors keep the suture in place. When the cannula is removed, the surgeon closes the fascia by simply tying the TroClose1200 sutures together.
