The technology streamlines laparoscopic procedures by reducing the number of ports and incisions, minimizing complications, and reducing the costs associated with conventional organ retraction:
Virtual Ports solutions optimize tissue access and visualization by allowing surgeons to a traumatically retract the organ obstructing the surgical field of view by lifting it and anchoring it to the intra-abdominal wall. In contrast to conventional laparoscopic surgery, which requires the use of dedicated ports, incisions, and auxiliary personnel solely for organ retraction, the Virtual Ports approach results in complete organ retraction without a dedicated port or assistant.
The cornerstone of Virtual Ports family of products, the proprietary MicroAnchoring technology, streamlines minimally invasive surgery by offering a novel approach to organ retraction and laparoscope cleaning. It relies on internally anchored exceptionally small-profile devices for critical procedural functions using an existing 5mm port and without cluttering the laparoscopic workspace.
