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.([FOOTNOTE=Darzi, A. Initial Experience with an Absorbable Laparoscopic Ligation Clip. British Journal of Surgery.1997. 84: 974-976.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),* Featuring a 360 degree rotation, every angle is reachable.


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: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
  • Two-part compression closure mechanism includes notches which may provide greater holding strength([FOOTNOTE=Klein, R.D. et al. (1994). “Comparison of Titanium and Absorbable Polymeric Surgical Clips for Use in Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy.” Surgical Endoscopy. 8: 753-758.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),†
  • Lapro-Clip™ absorbable polymer clips compression closure mechanism may provide a more secure closure than clips with latch closure mechanisms([FOOTNOTE=R2171-007-0 Lapro-clip Long Claims Testing T0 and Interim, June 15th, 2015.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]),‡

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.


“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,†
  • Absorbable clips retention force provides greater holding strength than titanium clips2,†
  • The Lapro-Clip™ ligating clips are MRI safe([FOOTNOTE=Gill A, Shellock FG. Assessment of MRI issues at 3-Tesla for metallic surgical implants: findings applied to 61 additional skin closure staples and vessel ligation clips. Journal Of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance: Official Journal Of The Society For Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance. 2012;14:3],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=])

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.
