Magnetic assisted laparoscopic surgery (MALS) is an innovative technique that offers numerous advantages in gallbladder surgery. By utilizing magnets, MALS enables surgeons to perform the procedure with fewer incisions compared to traditional laparoscopic approaches. This technique involves the insertion of magnetic instruments through small incisions, while an external magnet placed on the patient's abdomen guides their movement. The magnetic attraction allows for precise control and maneuverability within the surgical area, reducing the need for additional incisions. MALS offers potential benefits such as reduced scarring, decreased postoperative pain, and shorter recovery times, making it a promising alternative for gallbladder surgery.  MORE

The Morcellation containment system is a surgical device designed to address concerns regarding the dissemination of tissue during laparoscopic procedures, specifically in the context of uterine fibroid removal. It aims to minimize the potential spread of cancerous cells when using power morcellators. The system typically consists of an isolation bag or containment device that securely holds the tissue being morcellated, preventing its dispersion in the abdominal cavity. By containing and extracting the tissue within the bag, the risk of spreading malignant cells is significantly reduced. This system provides a safer approach to morcellation, enhancing patient outcomes and reducing potential complications associated with the procedure.  MORE
