MiniLap® Percutaneous Surgical System

Less Trauma. In its simplest form.

The MiniLap® Percutaneous Surgical System from Teleflex is designed to reduce trauma for your patients while giving you all the essential functionality needed for less complex laparoscopic procedures.

Using a slim 2.3 or 2.4 mm shaft, the MiniLap® System allows percutaneous insertion without the use of a trocar. The result is smaller incisions for smaller scars and less trauma.

The MiniLap® System represents another innovation from Teleflex in the category of minimally invasive surgery: percutaneous laparoscopy. The MiniLap® System enters directly through the skin using an integrated needle tip. To grasp difficult structures, the patented deployment design allows the system's grasper jaws to open up to 12.5 mm, ideal for a variety of the most common laparoscopic procedures.

Designed by a surgeon, the MiniLap® System comes in two easy-to-use, disposable designs:

  • The 2.4 mm MiniLap® System with MiniGrip® Handle, with four types of graspers, makes it easy for surgeons to grasp and manipulate tissue
  • The 2.3 mm MiniLap® System with ThumbGrip offers a set of four graspers and four monopolar electrosurgical tools that provide the essential functions of traction/countertraction and cutting/cautery.
The MiniLap® System makes your minimally invasive procedures even less invasive.

All the functionality you need for your most common procedures

Easy to use, the MiniLap System enters directly through the skin, then deploys inside the body to provide essential functionality.

Insert through skin

Make a small incision using an 11-blade scalpel. Insert directly into the abdomen using the integrated needle tip – no trocar needed.

Deploy tool

Once entry is observed, advance the instrument and deploy it inside the body for immediate use. Grasper jaws can open up to 12.5 mm.

Manipulate tissue

Lock the jaws onto the tissue for easy grasping. Stabilize extracorporeally for hands-free retraction at the distance and angle you desire.

Use with 5 mm tools

You can also introduce 5 mm laparoscopic devices, such as the Weck® Auto Endo5® Ligating Clip Applier, through traditional laparoscopic access ports.
