Laparoscopes Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Laparoscopic surgery, which is also known as minimally invasive surgery (MIS), usually begins with the insertion of a laparoscope through a port of access, often at the site of the umbilicus or subxyphoid. Laparoscopes are essentially viewing tubes that are equipped with lights and small cameras. They transmit an image of the inside of the peritoneal cavity to allow surgeons to view and perform abdominal and pelvic surgery through single or multiple ports of access. They are commonly between
5 mm to 10 mm in diameter, and function as the surgeons eyes, making them necessary for every laparoscopic procedure. Laparoscopes are fully reusable devices, but, due to the complexity of their design, often break down and must be serviced or replaced.
