Trocars are your first point of contact. From maximizing visibility and maneuverability to enabling surgical flow and minimizing exposure to pneumoperitoneum gas, ENDOPATH XCEL® Trocars provide the control you want and the consistency you need. 

Visibility

ENDOPATH XCEL® Trocar with OPTIVIEW® Technology is the only trocar that reduces rewipes of the scope upon reinsertion after cleaning.*

Control

ENDOPATH XCEL® Trocars had higher abdominal wall retention force†,‡ and lower insertion force§,¶ than Applied or Medtronic trocars.

Leak Rates

ENDOPATH XCEL® 5mm Trocars had the lowest and most consistent leak rates of leading 5mm trocars. \\,**

\\ On a benchtop test measuring leak rate with a 4.7mm probe inserted, B5LT leaks significantly less than ONB5STF, CFR03 and CTR03. B5LT leak rate distribution was significantly less than CTR03, although the medians were both zero.

** On a benchtop test measuring leak rate with a 4.7mm probe, B5LT leak rate standard deviation was 82% less than ONB5STF, 93% less than CFR03 and 88% less than CTR03. Claim #: 153072-200915
