What Are the Uses of Laparoscopic Trocars?
Introduction to Laparoscopy
Laparoscopic surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses a special instrument called a laparoscopic trocar to create a small incision (about 5-10mm) in the patient's abdomen. Then, a laparoscope is inserted into the patient's body to examine and treat their medical condition. The laparoscope has a larger viewing area, allowing doctors to observe any abnormalities within the abdomen, which assists in diagnosis and treatment.
Applications of Laparoscopic Trocar
Diagnosis and Treatment
The laparoscopic trocar is an essential instrument in laparoscopic surgery as it allows doctors to observe any abnormalities within the abdomen, such as tumors, stones, and hernias. The trocar can also be used for organ transplantation and receiving transplant organs.
Another important use of the lap trocar is for surgical treatment. It can be used to treat diseases such as gallbladder disease, liver cirrhosis, pancreatic disease, uterine fibroids, abdominal tumors, as well as gallstones, liver stones, and pancreatic stones. This reduces patients' pain and postoperative complications, as well as improving treatment effectiveness.
Lap trocar care is essential. After surgery, disinfection and protection of suture points should be emphasized to avoid scratches, itching, and other postoperative complications.
Roles of Laparoscopic Trocar
The laparoscopic trocar plays three key roles:
Firstly, the sheath of the laparoscope can provide a clear view, hence enhancing accuracy. It fixes the laparoscope lens on a special stand, facing the required direction and effectively reduces the surgical area while enhancing the viewing angle, thereby increasing surgical efficiency.
Secondly, the external sheath provides a stable laparoscope bracket, making the laparoscope stable during surgery. This type of sheath is usually made of metal or plastic, with adjustable screws at both ends that can be adjusted according to different surgical needs. This ensures that the laparoscope is stable during surgery. The internal sheath is used to stabilize the laparoscope by supporting all devices inside the abdomen, thereby improving surgical accuracy.
Thirdly, the movable steel ball is an important component of the lap trocar, which can improve the flexibility of the laparoscope, making it more agile and able to better support all devices in the abdomen, thus improving surgical quality.
The laparoscopic trocar is an essential instrument in laparoscopic surgery. It enables doctors to observe any abnormalities within the abdomen, assists in diagnosis and treatment, and can treat abdominal diseases. Careful attention should be paid to postoperative care to reduce complications and achieve better treatment outcomes.
