LaproFlex used during laparoscopic surgery of endometriosis

Improved body posture when removing endometriosis around the uterosacral ligaments

Problem

Endometrial implants are often located around the uterosacral ligaments

Thus deep in the pelvic area, under the uterus, surrounded by delicate organs like the ureter and the rectum. To enable optimal exposure, laparoscopic instrument ports are placed close to the spina iliaca anterior superior. A third instrument port is located above the uterus for the assistant to manipulate the uterus.

“Endometrial implants located around the uterosacral ligaments are the most challenging to remove.”

Solution

The steerable LaproFlex grasper can be bent to always keep optimal exposure

Even when the LaproFlex forceps is placed through a port on the mid-line. This port is closer to the body, resulting in a relaxed posture having your arms along your body. This adds to the calmness in your procedure.

“With the LaproFlex, I can maintain an optimal posture at the operating table, even with the challenging procedures.”
