Comprised of a telescopic stainless steel bar and two articulated clips positioned on either end, the EndoLift gives the surgeon flexibility in choosing both the direction and angle of retraction. Once the bar is positioned underneath the soft tissue, the Applier is used to grasp one of the clips and anchor it to the intra-abdominal wall. The process of fastening the second clip creates the lift necessary to move the soft tissue structure out of the operative field. When the organ is securely fastened to the peritoneal wall, the Applier is removed, and the port is available for use with other laparoscopic tools.
The combination of fewer tools in the abdominal cavity and complete organ retraction greatly improves the operative critical view and workspace during laparoscopic procedures. The state-of-the-art EndoLift is designed for use in general, bariatric, gynecologic, colorectal, oncologic, robot-assisted, and single-port surgeries.
