Gordian Surgical, an Israeli company, won the European CE mark for its TroClose1200 laparoscopy trocar that has a built-in suturing system to close the abdominal wall once you’re done with the procedure. The sutures are placed internally around the puncture once the trocar is positioned and are brought together by simply pulling on the lines once the laparoscopic instruments are removed.
The company hopes the device will save surgeons time over manual suturing or introducing additional devices just to close the incision. Moreover, it believes that a good deal of ports will be able to be closed with its system that are currently too difficult for manual methods.
