Overview

The ligation solution for maximum security

The Lapro-Clip™ system consists of:

  • The Lapro-Clip™ reusable clip applier
  • Lapro-Clip™ absorbable ligation clips

The Lapro-Clip™ reusable clip applier:

Has a two-part compression closure mechanism that closes more securely than latch closure mechanisms, which can fail if tissue becomes trapped between the jaws.1 Featuring a 360 degree rotation, every angle is reachable.

Features

Lapro-Clip absorbable ligation clips:
Composed of two polymers:

  • Inner track – made of polyglyconate
  • Outer track – made from polyglycolic acid

These polymers degrade completely via hydrolysis – leaving no foreign material in the body:2

  • Soft flexible inner track degrades in 180 days
  • Rigid outer track degrades in 90 days

A dual-layer clip-lock mechanism

  • The flexible inner layer of the absorbable clip wraps around the vessel to protect it from high ligation forces
  • The rigid outer layer clicks on to and compresses the inner layer
  • The two-part compression closure includes anti-slip notches to prevent clip migration
  • Clips close front to back (distal to proximal) to optimise inclusion of the structure in the clip, preventing it slipping out during ligation. Tissue hydraulics may allow tissue to extrude out of the jaws with back-to-front closure1
  • The front-to-back closing sequence may close more securely than clips with latch closure mechanisms, by reducing the risk of tissue interposition1

Please refer to the package insert for complete instructions, contraindications, warnings and precautions.

Clinical Evidence

“Initial experience with an absorbable laparoscopic ligation clip”

Medtronic provides the following review of a publication comparing the use of absorbable ligation clip to metal and absorbable latch-closure clips in laparoscopic surgery.

 

“The Use of Absorbable Clips in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy”

Medtronic provides the following review of a publication evaluating the efficacy of the Lapro-Clip™ absorbable ligating clips in obtaining hemostasis and cystic duct stump in laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

“Development of Independent Vessel Security after Ligation with Absorbable Sutures or Clips”

To understand the vessel security and to determine the time required to achieve independent security after ligation with an absorbable suture or absorbable clip.

Product Benefits

Advantages of using Lapro-Clip™ absorbable clips:

  • Maintain 80% strength up to 7 days, 11% by 21 days2
  • Provide greater retention force than titanium clips2
  • Avoid complications associated with metallic clips, such as:3
    • Interference with magnetic field of CT and MRI scans
    • Clip migration

Delivers satisfaction

In a clinical trial including 233 patients who underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy using Lapro-Clip™ ligating clips:1

  • Over 99% of patients had satisfactory results 1 month post operation
  • Surgeons highly rated the loading mechanism, security and clip closure

Available in a variety of clip packages to provide procedural flexibility.
