In recent years, minimally invasive surgery utilizing single-incision laparoscopic procedures and needle forceps has become more and more widely practiced aiming for less invasive and more cosmetically disruptive operations in endoscopic surgery.
However, such surgery is relatively difficult to perform and its safety has also been questioned.
Our Endo ReliefTM Needle Forceps represent a new concept in forceps that is internationally unrivaled. Although the grasping tips are 5 mm, like those of conventional forceps, the shaft diameter is a remarkably slender 2.4 mm.
The design of these unique and revolutionary forceps is based on a special handle fitting method.
Since the grasping tips are 5 mm in diameter, like most ordinary forceps, they are just as safe and easy to operate.
The very thin 2.4 mm-diameter shaft means that patients are left with little post-operative wound; healing is fast and the cosmetic result is excellent. Furthermore, the use of special titanium for the shaft ensures light weight, high corrosion resistance, and outstanding stability.
Endo ReliefTM Needle Forceps expand the range of applications for fixing forceps in reduced port surgery, by enabling the application of the triangular formation technique as same as conventional procedures in a greater variety of operations such as gall bladder disease, appendicitis, hernias, and gynecological procedures (hysterectomy).

Esophagoenterostomy in a laparoscopic total gastrectomy procedure is a difficult technique that requires skill in inserting and fixing an anvil head when using a circular stapler for reconstruction.
The ENDO-PSI (Ⅱ) SLIM Purse String Instrument, fitted with a trocar, is directly inserted in the trocar wound (10 to 12 mm) below the xiphisternum. By making a purse-string suture of the esophagus and transecting it, the anvil head can be inserted and fixed laparoscopically, enabling a precise esophagoenterostomy to be performed using the same basic technique as an ordinary abdominal operation.
