Percuvance® Percutaneous Surgical System

Less trauma. All the performance and versatility you need.

With a calculated defect volume more than 8 times smaller than an average 5 mm trocar* (learn more), the 2.9 mm Percuvance Percutaneous Surgical System from Teleflex has been engineered to reduce trauma for your patients – yet give you all the performance of a 5 mm laparoscopic device.

The Percuvance System introduces a breakthrough category of minimally invasive surgery: percutaneous laparoscopy. With this advanced approach, the Percuvance System enters directly through the skin without an insertion trocar, then attaches extracorporeally to one of seven 5 mm tool tips for greater versatility in a wide variety of procedures.

Your patients benefit from less trauma. And you can eliminate one or more trocars from your laparoscopic procedures while achieving the outcomes you want.

With the Percuvance System, minimally invasive surgery has now been reimagined – making it even less invasive.

What size access device do you use?


Trocars are classified by *inner* diameter. But the *outer* diameter is substantially bigger, creating a larger defect volume overall.

More than 8 times smaller defect volume

The Percuvance® Percutaneous Surgical System has a calculated defect volume that is more than 8 times smaller than an average 5 mm trocar.


*Teleflex Incorporated. Trocar Defect Volume Study (TRQ-00003429). 2016. Bench test results may not be indicative of clinical performance. Defect volumes calculated based on cylindrical volume of πr2h and abdominal wall height of 31.85 mm (de Carvalho GL, Cavazzola LT. Can mathematic formulas help us with our patients?

Tackle complex procedures with ease

Easy to learn and use, the Percuvance System enters directly through the skin, then attaches extracorporeally to 5 mm tool tips


Insert through skin

Make a small incision using an 11-blade scalpel. Using the introducer needle, slowly insert the 2.9 mm shaft directly through the skin and penetrate the abdominal wall.


Extracorporealize shaft

Align the shaft with an existing trocar. Using a seal bridge, advance the shaft through the trocar to expose the tip.


Attach 5 mm tool tips

Open the handle and unlock the shaft knob. Detach the introducer tip and securely snap on a 5 mm tool tip. Close the handle, lock the knob.


Internalize device

Bring the device back through the trocar into the body cavity. Repeat steps for multiple devices.
