Spacemaker™ Pro Access & Dissector System
The SpaceMaker™ Pro device is our all-in-one access and dissector system for inguinal and abdominal wall repair. Featuring a uniquely integrated solution that includes tailored cannulas and new anatomic balloons, the new Spacemaker™ Pro was designed to meet and address the challenges of laparoscopic hernia repair using the Minimally Invasive Component Separation Technique (MICST) and offering several clinical improvements in the Total Extraperitoneal (TEP) procedure when compared to legacy balloon dissector systems.
Spacemaker™ Plus Dissector System
The Spacemaker™ Plus dissector system combines a balloon dissector and an access device into a single, modular device. The dissection balloons are available in two shapes (round or oval). The access devices are available in two shapes (round or A-frame). The distention balloon (either oval or round) separates tissue planes, forming a discrete cavity for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.
Spacemaker™ Dissection Balloon
The Spacemaker™ dissection balloon uses a distention balloon (either oval or round) to separate tissue planes, forming a discrete cavity for laparoscopic-inguinal hernia repair.
Spacemaker™ Structural Balloon Trocar
The Spacemaker™ structural balloon trocar consists of a blunt obturator connected to a handle and a valve body assembly. The valve body assembly contains an internal flapper valve and seal to prevent gas leakage when instruments are inserted or withdrawn. The Spacemaker™ structural balloon trocar includes built-in converters to allow insertion of instruments of different diameters than the main seal. In addition, the device has an external one-way valve for gas insufflation.
Innovation That Matters
Medtronic offers a comprehensive line of access and dissection products designed to deliver optimal clinical and economic performance in endoscopic and laparoscopic hernia repair and other minimally invasive procedures. Our products adapt easily to the surgeon’s individual technique and to the specific anatomical needs of each patient.
