Small Diameter Laparoscopic Tool Having Releasable Tip

This device enables a surgeon to use a variety
of standard size laparoscopic tips without compromising tip size or
force capability. Furthermore, this technique also greatly minimizes
the likelihood of scarring. The apparatus contains an outer shaft
with a diameter of 1.6 mm or smaller. This shaft then contains a
moveable rod that is connected to a laparoscopic tip inserted
through the patient’s umbilicus. After the surgery is complete, the
devices are disconnected and each removed via the route of
introduction. Except for the umbilicus scar, which was there prior to
the surgery, this method will not leave a visible post-surgery scar.
This technique will also greatly reduce post-operative pain due to
minimized scarring.
