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.
