LaparoLight™ features SafetyView™ Illumination Technology, a new safety enhancement developed so surgeons no longer have to blindly guess when the peritoneal cavity has been entered. A light immediately alerts them to entry. The “illuminated” visual placement indicator enhances current safety protocols and provides increased assurance to the surgeon during blind insertion.
There is also a distinct audible “click” as the blunt tip springs forward entering peritoneal cavity. A clear hub allows for easy viewing during aspiration and hanging drop tests.
CONMED also offers disposable Veress type insufflation needles. A spring-loaded, retractactable safety tip protector retracts as the needle is pushed through the abdominal tissue and automatically advances once the peritoneum is penetrated. The needle features a clear handle for easy hanging drop tests, and a luer lock connector for insufflating the abdominal cavity.
