Dear Dr Neha

The Lapcup is a vacuum cup used to lift the abdominal wall up to some extent to create a distance between abdominal wall and bowel so that you can introduce the veress needle safely and create pneumoperitonium. It is a simple device to create pneumoperitoneum with ease as claimed by the company. It can probably reduce the risk of retroperitoneal injury associated with the use of Veress needle. According to manufacturer and few articles, It can be of great help to beginners in laparoscopy.

In my personnel opinion this is a useless device and there is no data of safety available. Your skill is more important in access than anything else.
