A new surgical accessory — designed by Dr Philip Gan as part of the LiVac Retractor System—will be released in Australia on 26th April, 2016.
A non-compressible connector tool has been developed to reduce the risk of tubing compression when using the LiVac Retractor System.
The design incorporates two parts for ease of connection and release of the vacuum seal and fits neatly against a 12 or 15 mm laparoscopic port, or within the LiVac Bevel or a SILS™ port.
Designs for the new accessory were shaped by surgeon feedback, and replaces the original connector introduced to the market in 2015.
The new connector system is available with the small and large retractor.
