News in the bariatric surgery market—the 5-mm bariatric laparoscopic instruments by Stryker Endoscopy are now available in a 45-cm version.
Since they are 12 cm longer than the smaller laparoscope in the same product line, it is especially suited for bariatric procedures.
The special Milled Radel Shaft Insulation provides instrument durability, patient safety and a larger finger ring for decreased finger fatigue for the surgeon. Its newest feature is rotating and non-rotating slide lock graspers, offering the possibility of 360 degree shaft rotation.
The new 45-cm Stryker laparoscope is made of high-quality stainless steel.
