Camera Trocar Lift Assisted Laparoscopy
Except for its normal function as a gas-tight sleeve for a laparoscope, the camera trocar is by its central location in the abdominal wall, also a perfect anchoring device for mechanical lifting.
Abdominal wall lifting in laparoscopy has many advantages:
- with low gas pressure, it means a "normal" intraabdominal space formation.
- with standard gas pressure, it means a “double” outcome in the intraabdominal space formation.
- with zero gas pressure, it allows the surgeon to take measures in a “gasless” condition using open surgery instruments such as clamps, scissors and powerful suction devices.
• The CTLL technique, using the camera trocar as an anchoring device, complemented by suprapubic lifting by means of a towel clamp, includes gas tightness, has a very short setup time (≤1-2 min), introduces no extra devices into the peritoneal cavity, causes no trauma to the peritoneal surface and does not interfere with surgical movements. It is a safe and uncomplicated procedure.
