Laparoscopic Disposable Trocars
For Surgeon / Aug 28th, 2020 1:03 pm     A+ | a-

Laparoscopic disposable trocars are medical devices used in laparoscopic surgery to create a small incision in the abdomen through which surgical instruments can be inserted. Trocars are essentially a hollow tube with a sharp end and a blunt end, allowing surgeons to create a path for other instruments to enter the body.

Disposable trocars are designed for single-use, reducing the risk of infection and minimizing the need for sterilization. They are made of plastic or other materials that can be safely discarded after use.

During a laparoscopic procedure, the disposable trocar is inserted through a small incision in the abdomen. Once the trocar is in place, it can be used to insert other surgical instruments, such as laparoscopes or graspers, into the body. The trocar is removed after the procedure is complete, and the incision is typically closed with a small stitch or surgical tape.

Disposable trocars are available in a range of sizes, from 3mm to 15mm in diameter, allowing surgeons to choose the appropriate size for the procedure being performed. Some disposable trocars also feature a self-sealing valve, which helps to reduce gas leakage during the procedure and improve patient safety.

The use of disposable trocars in laparoscopic surgery offers several advantages over reusable trocars, including reduced risk of infection, reduced risk of instrument damage, and improved efficiency in the operating room. However, it is important to note that disposable trocars can be more expensive than reusable trocars, and their environmental impact should be considered. Overall, the use of disposable trocars is a safe and effective option for laparoscopic surgery.


While disposable trocars offer many advantages for laparoscopic surgery, there are also some potential disadvantages to consider:

  1. Cost: Disposable trocars can be more expensive than reusable trocars. This can increase the overall cost of the surgical procedure.

  2. Waste: Disposable trocars create more medical waste than reusable trocars, which can have an impact on the environment.

  3. Durability: Reusable trocars are typically made of more durable materials, such as metal, which can withstand repeated use. Disposable trocars are made of plastic or other materials that may be less durable.

  4. Limited options: There may be fewer options available in terms of size and shape with disposable trocars compared to reusable trocars.

  5. Quality control: As disposable trocars are produced in large quantities, there is a risk of defects or inconsistencies in the manufacturing process, which can affect their safety and effectiveness.

It is important to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of disposable trocars before deciding to use them in laparoscopic surgery. The decision will depend on the specific needs of the patient, the surgeon's experience and preference, and the resources available in the healthcare facility.
