Good technique in minimally invasive surgery demands equal, if not greater, attention to patient outcome than open surgery. Proper suture placement is key to effective outcomes in laparoscopic ventral hernia repair.
GORE® Suture Passer facilitates closure of large port sites, secures prosthetic materials for laparoscopic incisional and inguinal hernia repairs. Indeed, it is the one reusable instrument needed to ensure proper suture placement throughout such procedures as abdominal laparoscopy, gynecological laparoscopy and pelviscopy.
