- Sturdy Construction: Laparoscopic trolleys are typically constructed with durable materials, such as stainless steel or high-quality plastic, to provide stability and support for the equipment placed on them.
- Multiple Shelves and Compartments: The trolley is equipped with multiple shelves and compartments to organize laparoscopic instruments, cameras, light sources, insufflators (to inflate the abdomen with gas), and other accessories needed during the procedure.
- Cable Management: Laparoscopic surgeries involve various cables for cameras and light sources. The trolley often has a built-in cable management system to keep the cables organized and prevent tangling during surgery.
- Adjustable Height: The height of the trolley is adjustable to match the operating surgeon’s or team’s preferred working height, ensuring optimal ergonomics during the surgery.
- Swivel Function: Some trolleys may have a swivel function that allows the monitor, where the surgical team views the laparoscopic images, to be rotated for optimal viewing angles.
- Locking Wheels: The trolley is equipped with locking wheels to ensure stability during surgery and prevent unwanted movement during critical procedures.
- Power Outlets: Laparoscopic trolleys may have integrated power outlets to connect and power various devices and equipment during surgery.
The Laparoscopic Trolley is a crucial component in laparoscopic surgeries, providing the surgical team with a centralized and organized workspace for all the necessary instruments and equipment. It allows the team to have quick access to instruments, maintain a clean and uncluttered surgical area, and efficiently perform minimally invasive procedures.
During a laparoscopic surgery, the trolley is positioned near the operating table to hold and support the laparoscopic instruments and equipment. The surgeon and the surgical team can easily access the instruments and monitor the laparoscopic images displayed on the monitor attached to the trolley.
The Laparoscopic Trolley plays a significant role in enhancing the efficiency and safety of laparoscopic surgeries, enabling surgeons to perform complex procedures with precision and improving patient outcomes.
