Objective: to improve and facilitate the use of endoloops during laparoscopic surgeries.
Description of the technology and method of its use or application: it is the same type of endoloop we use but, it has a plastic circle sorrounding the tube in its posterior third. This allows the surgeon to pull the suture upwards while pushing the plastic circle with the thumb. This allows the surgeon to secure the nod with just one hand.
No preliminary results
Conclusions / Future directions: the conclusion is that this device would improve the surgeon’s efficiency during laparoscopic surgery, allowing him to us the endoloop in a more practical way with just one hand, which resumes in less time spent operating and more comfort for the surgeon.
