Thoracoport™ Soft 5 mm, 12 mm, and 15 mm single use trocar consists of a blunt-tipped obturator and a 60 mm threaded flexible sleeve with a shroud at its proximal end to protect against foreign materials entering the chest cavity, and for instrument stabilization. Once inserted into a free space in the chest cavity, the threaded sleeve is turned clockwise until securely seated in the tissue. The threaded sleeve will grip tissue to reduce slippage during instrument manipulation.
- Soft or compressible cannula may reduce pressure on tissue while in place.
- Threaded cannula increases port stability and decreases slippage.
