The manufacturer of medical devices, Cosmic ME Co, has developed a new instrument called “Endoneedle Neo (laparoscopic percutaneous peritoneal hernia closure needle)” targeted for endoscopic surgeries when performed on patients with inguinal hernia regardless of age. This is to replace traditional and conventional laparotomy surgeries where it will be beneficial for patients to have zero scars and it reduces the physical burden on them.
“Endoneedle Neo” is designed such that it comprises of needles with different roles ranging from puncture needle, thread feed needle and thread recovery needle. The purpose of this medical instrument is to improve the surgical procedure for this particular symptom called inguinal hernia. This symptom develops when the intestine falls due to the opening of the “Hernia gate” that failed to closed in the past. Closing the gate is necessary but is poses a challenge for the surgeons performing the procedure. Using the conventional method, the thread interferes with the insertion of the needle while suturing the hernia gate by the insertion of the needle with the yam that is attached to the affected part.
Endoneedle eliminates this problem by the addition of thread in the needle which smoothens the insertion of the needle into the affected region through the connections of the puncture needle, thread feeding needle, and thread recovery needle for this procedure.
