Laparoscopic Ultrasonic Dissector (LUD)
Outstanding small diameter
Laparoscopic liver resection is a young, aspiring technique of modern surgery. Compared to open surgery, laparoscopic liver resection is associated with less blood loss, fewer complications and shorter recovery times.1 As an ideal tool for a minimally invasive procedure Söring offers the extremely light and perfectly balanced LUD.
With its extraordinary outer sheath diameter of only 5.5 millimetres, it is the thinnest laparoscopic ultrasonic dissector worldwide. During surgery the LUD can be easily guided through trocars2 placed in different positions, thus enabling a procedure from different angles. Thanks to its unequalled long sonotrode, it merges perfectly with the instrument portfolio of a minimally invasive liver resection. Similar to the instruments for open liver surgery, the LUD convinces with its effective aspiration performance, its extremely compact design and is full autoclavability. Moreover, it is immediately ready to use due to its quick and simple set-up.
