Abstract

Closure of laparoscopic trocar sites can be difficult, particularly in the obese patient. We have begun using a spring-loaded needle to facilitate closure of these sites. We have found that the device allows for accurate suture placement, the potential of decreased closure time, reduced risk for trocar site dehiscence, and can be used in obtaining hemostasis of abdominal wall vessels.
